Need to find inexpensive bariatric vitamins. HELP!

Recommended Posts

Surgeons all say different things it seems. There is no real gold standard. I think a lot of it depends on your weight, blood profile, Vitamin deficiency's, etc. We are all different. It probably would not hurt to have a complete blood panel done and go from there. My surgeon told me the other day to take 2 Flintstone chewables a day. That's it. I also take Vit D3, Iron and B12 supplements.< br>

I had this for awhile. They sent me shakes and Vitamins covered by my insurance!

If your Dr says you need Calcium and Iron pills you need calcium and iron. Most women that are still menstruating will need them.

I use the Celebrate chewables and melts. Ordered off Amazon. Runs about $25 a month, although you have to order about 3 months supply at a time.

I say do whatever your surgeon tells you to do. Plus, you should take your bloodwork on a regular basis. If your labs look good, just keep doing whatever you're doing. There are some Vitamin and mineral deficiencies that won't show up right away and will take possibly years to show in labs.

We sell almost every brand of Bariatric vitamin in our BariatricPal Store:

You can use code this code for 10% off your order: BARIATRIC10

We also offer % off on a regular basis if you subscribe to any item.

      I can now buy clothes in normal stores again. Admittedly the first time when I started trying on clothes, I really had to keep myself calm. Normally trying on clothes causes me to become SOOO depressed that it take weeks just to get over it. Now, I have to keep myself from not wanting to buy everything!

      Hi, congrats on your surgery!  Saw you went to Dr. Pleatman.  I've been between doing the Lap Band and sleeve.  I was suppose to have a consultation with Dr. Pleatman this month.  So far great experience with his office coordinator Carrie (sp?).   Feeling really scared and nervous about getting the sleeve.  If you can share...how was your experience with Dr. Pleatman's office and the surgery?   Thanks!

      I'm not new, I was an active Lapbander from: 
      March 4, 2013   LAST VISITED
      February 6, 2017 Here I am on October 4, 2019 thinking back over my Lapband journey and how I thought I would be banded for life. Unfortunately, I have been sick for some time, and am on medications; and well my weight has constantly slowly increased. I was 225 pounds when I had my Lapband surgery on Dec. 17, 2010. At least my weight hasn't reached 210. I have been fluctuating between 202-206. For that, I'm grateful. I'm just excited to be able to have another tool to assist me with my weight loss journey. I'm not looking forward to the liquid stage, however.
