The American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery (ASMBS) was established specifically for those with higher nutritional needs after a Weight Loss Surgery procedure. These guidelines acknowledge the limited malabsorption properties of undergoing Bariatric Surgery.
You may be thinking about why exactly the ASMBS Guidelines are significant.
Without these guidelines, many Bariatric patients would have the outcome of incurable nutritional deficiencies
that can be harmful to living a safe and healthy post-surgery lifestyle.
