Once daily multivitamin



Recommended Posts

I have to take a multi with Iron, a calcium citrate, a B-complex and a probiotic everyday. I wouldn't try to get by with less of the 3 golden requirements. Water, Protein and your supplements. That's when people start running into health problems after WLS. All of the horror stories you hear of when it comes to post-op complications like teeth loss and brittle bones and stuff like anemia can most often be traced back to complacency when it comes to following the nutritional requirements.

I don't think the OP is trying to skip supplements, but rather asking if a once-a-day multi (specifically made for Bariatric patients) is sufficient as opposed to three or four times a day supplements. I have seen those and wondered that myself, but I think that is a question for your doctor/bariatric team. They might be intended for maintenance use once weight loss goals are met?

On my list of post op Vitamins, there were caveats about taking some things together (they don't play nice) or taking too much at one time (your body can't absorb).

I'd definitely check with your doctor or nutritionist.

My supplement plan, approved by my doc, is this:

Morning: bariatric Multivitamin, Iron, Vitamin D (I'm very deficient), and a probiotic

Throughout the day: 3 Calcium supplements (500 each) and one more probiotic

I take

2 Flinstones complete tablets which is 12.48 at Walmart for over 2 months supply. https://grocery.walmart.com/ip/Flintstones-Complete-Chewables-Children-s-Multivitamins-Kids-Vitamin-Supplement-with-Vitamins-C-D-E-B6-and-B12-150-Count/10311444

2 Citrical Petities which is 10.92 for over 2 months supply https://grocery.walmart.com/ip/Citracal-Petites-Calcium-and-Vitamin-D3-Supplement-to-Support-Bone-Health-200-Easy-to-Take-Caplets/13448581

I do not tolerate Iron pills so I get iron infusions as needed and I have always been vit D deficient so I take a prescription strength every 2 weeks that only cost me $1 of month.

So my monthly Vitamin cost is less than $13 per month and these were all approved by my NUT.

      I broke 150 lbs today!!!!
      150 lbs has been my wall for the past 15 years.  I've dieted down to the low 150s 3 times only to regain what I lost and more. 
      I am now officially 149.7 lbs as of this morning.  Yay me!

      Tomorrow is surgery day...  I'm not sure if I'm nervous, anxious, excited or a little bit of all three.  I honestly thought I would be freaking out at this point, but I'm much calmer than that.  I suppose the last 7 months of preparation both physically and mentally has brought me some peace.  I say this now, but when I try to sleep tonight, that may be a different story.  
      I appreciate everything I've read on this forum that has helped me to prepare as much as possible.  I know this part of my journey may not be the same as someone else's, but having a good frame of reference helps a ton. 
      The most exciting and most difficult part of the journey begins tomorrow...

      Hey ya'll. SO. I got down to 199 for the weigh in but gained it all back right after. I have to do another month of weight management. They switched out the nutritionists at the last second and she said she doesn't pass anyone unless they have 5 veggies a week. I'm starting metformin and Farxiga today. Doc found a little bit of blood in my urine but wasn't too concerned. I'm trying not to freak myself out either. Depression is a little more intense than usual. I'm all over the damn place.
