Nutrition in Post Bariatric Surgery
Bariatric surgery is one of the most effective long term weight loss methods. Successful surgery, however, does not come without some potential complications; some that can be associated with nutrition. Our experienced dietitians are vitally important in your success; not just immediately pre & post operatively, but providing continued & ongoing careful supervision & support.
A continued working relationship with your dietitian & your doctor is essential to optimise your long term success with healthy weight loss. We can help you maintain change to eating habits to ensure you achieve the best possible outcomes.
Following bariatric surgery you can expect to have regular blood screening done to check levels of essential vitamins and other nutritional components. Taking vitamin supplements and nutrients is a lifelong recommendation after bariatric surgery, and with the guidance and supervision of our dietitians and doctors, we can determine the combination of supplements that will be just right for you to help prevent any deficiencies or malnutrition.
