Nutrition Guidelines from ASMBS

The Society of Obesity and Related Diseases (SOARD) is the official journal for the American Society of Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery (ASMBS) and is published for bariatric professionals. 

In the September / October edition they have published a new document for surgeons, nutritionists and WLS patients regarding recommended levels of vitamins, supplements and foods after surgery. They cover the three major types of surgery - Adjustable Gastric Band, RNY and DS. This is an article that EVERY single surgeon and nutritionist and patient MUST read, understand and use the information within it.

  • Download the file. 
  • Print it. 
  • Read it. 
  • Read it again. 
  • Use a highlighter and post-it notes and a notebook to take notes. 
  • Read it again. 
  • Print a copy for your doctor. 
  • Share it with your WLS friends and support group. 
  • Really.  It's that important.

  1. I couldn't read the article. It wants people to pay $31 to view it.

    Are there any other links?
