SFEBES2016 Meet The Expert Sessions Nutritional support post bariatric surgery (1 abstracts)
Bariatric surgery is a well established treatment for obesity and its associated co-morbidities. Many obese patients undergoing bariatric surgery have pre-existing micronutrient deficiencies which can potentially worsen post-bariatric surgery. Pre- and post- surgical nutritional monitoring and follow-up of these patients is imperative as part of long term bariatric care. This lecture will review common nutritional deficiencies post-bariatric surgery, and current guidelines for monitoring and replacement of vitamins and minerals prior to, and following bariatric surgery. Case studies will be used to highlight clinical presentations of micronutrient deficiencies and the importance of early intervention to prevent long term adverse events.
