what vitamins brands do you recommend?



Recommended Posts

Hello! I am pre-op, i am expecting my surgery date to be early September. I have seen many brands for Vitamins and types of vitamins that are single dose vitamins that have all nutrients in one. And other vitamins where you have to buy mutiple types. Which is the better one? Is there a diff? Does the Vitamin matter if you have VSG or Gastric Bypass? Im going with Gastric Bypass

Thanx

Vitamin brands don't matter as far as sleeve vs gastric bypass go.

single dose bariatric-specific Vitamins tend to be more expensive, but then you also have to figure out the cost of buying separate vitamins (and taking two Multivitamins a day, too). I do the latter, but I don't buy expensive brands, so I'm probably still coming out ahead. And there's the convenience factor to consider. As long as you're meeting the requirements, either option will work - it pretty much just comes down to personal preference.

      How's everyone doing? I'm still fighting insurance company over plastics.
      Many changes at work are coming up. It's very stressful but there are also some opportunities involved, both in regards to personal development and promotion.
