Low iron & vitamin D



Recommended Posts

Yes, it's very common. What does the doc advise?

I had low Vitamin D before surgery. Vitamin D deficiencies are actually very common. My surgeon put me on prescription vitamin D, and that brought it up really fast. I've taken OTC vitamin D since surgery - my levels are fine now.

I was schedule to have surgery in April but got sick and my team rescheduled me, at that time my Iron levels were normal only viramin D levels were low. I recently did labs again & the only reason I found out my iron is low is because i e-mail my Nut about the prohealth bariatric Multivitamins thats when she inform me that my iron is low.

I had low Vitamin D lonnngg before surgery. Took supplements on and off. The surgeon gave me those 50,000 IU prescription Vitamin D pills to take pre-op. Now I take 4,000 IU vitamin d pills daily, post-op.

      I met with my surgeon on Friday.. I've completed all my tests and all my nutrition meetings as well as meeting the weight loss requirements for my insurance. We are officially submitting to insurance for approval and I was given a surgery date of January 16th 2020 (13 days before my birthday!) Fingers crossed all goes through

      Ok, now im getting old...my body gets me up at my normal 5am dog walk even when it's the weekend, vacation, and most importantly when I'm sick. So now that I have more energy, my body wants to make sure I suffer even longer during the day when I have a cold! Damn being healthy again! (:D)

      At my Primary Physician appt, the Doc said you know you lost a whole person. When you started seeing me you were 265lbs now you're 148lbs.
      She's right... I lost the fun me 😂 Joking Joking Joking. It's amazing who keeps track when you don't like insurance and browsers feeds
