An Article Every WLS Patient Should Read

There's an article published in the American Journal of Health-System Pharmacy about how medications and nutrients are malabsorbed after weight loss surgery - gastric bypass specifically. I found this article while doing some research on how calcium is absorbed in a patient with no stomach acid. But this article contains so much great information about our new digestive system that I think every WLS patient should read it. I also think every doctor needs to read this article as well. I'll be taking a copy of it to my PCP at my next appointment in a few weeks.

Click the link near the top of the page that says
"manual download" and the PDF version will appear.

So go read it. Print it. Keep it as a reference. Share it with others and share it with your doc.
