Comparison of Bariatric Branded Chewable Multivitamin/Multimineral Formulations to the 2016 American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Integrated Health Nutritional Guidelines

  • 44 Accesses

Abstract

Postoperative vitamin and mineral supplementation are integral components of the management of the weight loss surgery patient. Supplements differ in type, amount, and salt form. No recent publication has compared bariatric branded commercially available products with current practice guidelines. Registered dietitians belonging to the New England Bariatric Dietitians LinkedIn group were surveyed to identify their recommendation practices. These results were then used to compare and discuss in a comprehensive fashion the most widely recommended bariatric branded chewable supplements to the 2016 American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Integrated Health Nutritional Guidelines.
