Nutrition Management of the Post-Bariatric Surgery Patient


Nutrition Management of the Post-Bariatric Surgery Patient

Gabriela Handzlik-Orlik et al. Nutr Clin Pract.


Bariatric surgery is considered one of the most effective methods of achieving long-term weight loss when all other medical treatments have failed. The number of bariatric procedures increases each year. Nevertheless, bariatric procedures are associated with a number of complications that require careful multidisciplinary management. Nutrition supervision is of substantial value, as malnutrition, vitamin, and micro- and macronutrient deficiencies may lead to deleterious consequences. In this review, we provide essential information on nutrition management, both before and after bariatric surgical procedures.

Keywords: avitaminosis; bariatric surgery; bariatrics; gastric bypass; malnutrition; obesity; vitamin deficiency.
