The following are the guidelines for Duodenal Switch patients from the office of the surgeon who performed my surgery:

* Four children's chewable complete multivitamin's daily.

* 1800-2400 mg calcium citrate daily.

* a total of 5000 international units of Vitamin D3 daily.

* 1000 micrograms of sublingual B12 weekly or a B12 injection monthly.

* 100 mg. Thiamin (Vitamin B1) weekly.

Hello MzNatalia, your regimen seems identical to mine except for the B1. I may start taking that too. The doc said i could if I wanted to. I haven't had my blood work labs done yet for 6 month post op but they are coming up. Do you take the B1 once a week or one everyday?

The guidelines that I received 5 years ago from my surgeon was weekly for DS patients.

I am a RNY gastric bypass patient, and my guidelines were B1 daily. After the first year, my surgeons office modified my requirement to weekly.

Hi Glamgirl, it’s B1 once a week.

As DSERS our Bs are quite often high without supplements.
