Top Tips for GPs after Bariatric Surgery

  • All patients following Gastric Sleeve or Gastric Bypass should take a “Complete A-Z Multivitamin” every day, lifelong.
  • All Bariatric Surgery patients should have a nutritional blood test at least 1-2 times a year.
  • Symptoms of continuous vomiting, dysphagia, intestinal obstruction or severe abdominal pain require emergency admission under a surgical team.
  • Many co-morbidities resolve following bariatric surgery such as diabetes mellitus, hypertension, hypercholesterolaemia and sleep apnoea, as well as mental health. These comorbidities often require review to adjust or wean medications.
  • Avoid NSAIDS and Bisphosphonates in Bariatric Surgery patients.
