januari 6th, 2020|Categories: FitForMe Research collaboration, Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass, Sleeve Gastrectomy|

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.
