The Multivitamin ONE does not meet the ASMBS standard. Does anyone take this and have any problems?

What are you talking about? BariatricPal Multivitamin ONE absolutely meets or exceeds ASMBS guidelines.

10,000 what? 🙂

Multivitamin ONE has 12,727 IU!

You're confusing IU and mcg. We're following the new FDA labeling guidelines. All the other Vitamin companies will be following soon.

ASMBS requires 5,000-10,000 IU.

Conversion rates between mcg RAE and IU are as follows [7]:

  • 1 IU retinol = 0.3 mcg RAE
  • 1 IU beta-carotene from dietary supplements = 0.15 mcg RAE
  • 1 IU beta-carotene from food = 0.05 mcg RAE
  • 1 IU alpha-carotene or beta-cryptoxanthin = 0.025 mcg RAE

See https://ods.od.nih.gov/factsheets/VitaminA-HealthProfessional/ for more info on conversions.

Multivitamin ONE has 12,727 IU. That's 333% of your DV for Vitamin A.

You can read the latest ASMBS guidelines at https://asmbs.org/app/uploads/2008/09/ASMBS-Nutritional-Guidelines-2016-Update.pdf .

The FDA is requiring that format in the near future.

I bought several months supply of ProCare before Bariatric Pal launched theirs. Going to compare them and possibly try One when I run out.

I was thinking of doing the same but I have three bottle of ProCare so it will be a while. I hope someone reviews the new chewable One they just came out with though. I am interested in that.....

Egh. Not me, I couldn't stand the chewables. If they don't have capsules then its no deal for me! To each their own I guess ;)

      Met with my surgeon yesterday and he said that he is so excited for me and the progress that will be made! Waiting for insurance pre-auth and then will get everything scheduled! 
       
      So excited to start this journey and become a new person!!

      New found appreciation for you all!
      So Im back in the US to take care of my aging father and it seems like more than ever that being bigger is the norm everywhere here. I cant say that Ive been the best, healthiest me at the moment, but I think you all Americans are doing GREAT to even be working towards the goal of getting healthier in face of all this temptation (even if you are a "slow loser"). So give all yourselves a pat on the back!

      I am now 10 days post op and I am down 16lbs. I had an allergic reaction to the glue my doctor used so I am still sore and trying to keep moving to not get stiff.

        Hello congratulations on your new journey I am 5 days post op and still trying to get the hang of things. I’m supposed to return back to work in a few days but still sore as well. Do you have any advice for me being 5 days post opt?

      Hello,  I am brand new on here. 
      The doctor qualified me yesterday for the surgery, so now I have to take 12 weeks of education classes and then he said they will schedule the surgery 4-6 weeks after I complete the classes. 
      I am excited to start this new journey.

      Am at the half-way mark of the six month pre-op program.  So excited!  Got clearance from psychologist this morning, so I scheduled my surgery consult for early March.  It is becoming more real now.  Have lost 18 pounds so far, since I began this journey on 12/18/19.
