Comparing deficiency prevalences

2020-03-24T13:47:48+00:00

Deficiencies in micronutrients after bariatric operations are frequent. Theoretically, prevalence depends on the kind of surgery and which parts of the gastro-intestinal system are bypassed. In a non-randomized prospective trial, the deficiency prevalence after Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass (RYGB, 86 patients) was compared with Sleeve Gastrectomy (SG, 50 patients) for up to 3 years after surgery. Postoperatively, all patients were prescribed daily multivitamin supplements.

Revisional procedures after Sleeve Gastrectomy

2020-03-23T07:26:15+00:00

For a long time, professionals have stated that a Sleeve Gastrectomy (SG) procedure has minimal impact on the nutrient status. However, studies have found that deficiencies are as common in SG patients as in Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass patients. To prevent vitamin and mineral deficiencies after an SG, lifelong supplementation is recommended. In 2009, FitForMe developed a specialized multivitamin supplement specifically for SG patients, based on scientific research: The first version of WLS Optimum.

Sleeve Gastrectomy patients benefit from specialized multivitamins

2020-01-06T12:31:15+00:00

To prevent vitamin and mineral deficiencies after a Sleeve Gastrectomy (SG), lifelong supplementation is recommended. However, standard multivitamin supplements (sMVS) are proven to be ineffective in the prevention of nutritional deficiencies. Therefore, FitForMe developed WLS Optimum, specifically for SG patients. In a retrospective analysis including 970 SG patients, the effectiveness of WLS Optimum on deficiencies was compared to a standard multivitamin for a period of five years.

Timing of pregnancy after bariatric surgery: preliminary results

2019-12-09T14:46:35+00:00

Current recommendations indicate to avoid pregnancy 12 to 18 months postoperatively due to active weight loss and increased risk of nutritional deficiencies. However, no high-quality evidence supports this recommendation. A study was conducted to examine the association between surgery-to-conception interval and pregnancy and neonatal complications, gestational weight gain and nutritional status.

Long-term supplementation after a Sleeve Gastrectomy

2019-12-09T14:47:39+00:00

The Sleeve Gastrectomy (SG) has become the most frequently performed bariatric procedure worldwide. Patients undergoing an SG are at risk for developing micronutrient deficiencies in the short term after surgery, due to limited oral intake, food intolerances and malabsorption. To assess their long-term nutritional status, a retrospective study was conducted collecting data of the nutritional status of 1793 SG patients over a 5-year follow-up period.

Vitamin D deficiency risk after Sleeve Gastrectomy

2019-12-09T15:19:26+00:00

Nutritional deficiencies are common after bariatric surgery. Not much is known though about deficiencies after sleeve gastrectomy (SG) in the long term. To assess the prevalence of deficiencies after SG, a prospective cohort study was conducted evaluating the nutritional status of 176 SG patients over a 5-year follow-up period.

Nutritional deficiencies before and 5 years after Sleeve Gastrectomy

2019-12-09T15:21:33+00:00

Not much is known about the long-term nutritional impact of the Sleeve Gastrectomy procedure. In a retrospective cohort study, the nutritional deficiencies in 537 patients before and after this operation were monitored over a 5-year follow-up.

Nutritional risks after Sleeve Gastrectomy

2019-12-09T15:32:16+00:00

The laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy (SG) has become the number one performed bariatric procedure worldwide. Although the incidence of micronutrient deficiencies has hardly been researched, the risk for developing deficiencies after this procedure is considered low. However, since physical changes after SG might influence the absorption of micronutrients like iron and vitamin B12, the low risk status has increasingly been questioned in the past years.
