Bariatric Surgeons and Primary Care Physicians encounter nutrient deficiencies and the associated complications at a high rate in patients who have had gastric surgery for weight loss.The use of IV Therapy as a prophylactic and therapeutic management tool to prevent and treat these deficiencies should be considered for this patient population.
Bariatric Surgery: How It Affects Nutrient Absorption
Obesity is a national epidemic in the United States. In 2018, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) showed that more than 1/3 of the American population is obese. In recent years, bariatric surgery has become an increasingly popular weight loss treatment, but this type of surgery does not come without consequences.
While the procedures are effective for weight loss in the long-term, they are also very invasive, can affect the stomach and intestines’ function, and cause many patients to suffer from nutrient deficiencies. As a result of these deficiencies, complications might arise, including but not limited to generalized weakness, mood disturbances such as depression and anxiety, brain fog, fatigue, irritability, and anemia. IV Therapy is safe, effective, and has a 100% absorption rate guaranteed, because the nutrients go directly into the bloodstream, bypassing absorption issues that may occur due to issues in the stomach and intestines.
INTRAVENOUS ABSORPTION > Oral Absorption
Bariatric surgeons are aware of these deficiencies, and most patients are placed on oral supplementation immediately after surgery. However, the oral absorption of nutrients is altered significantly after bariatric surgery hindering post-operative recovery and posing possible long-term health risks. Oral supplements may be beneficial, however many patients may still not sufficiently absorb the supplements orally, or they may prefer not to take supplements regularly.
These patients may benefit from IV therapy to fully heal or to maintain essential nutrient levels in the body.
