BLOOD WORK

Nutritional Monitoring

Blood Work

Nutritional monitoring is essential following bariatric surgery to ensure that patients don’t develop nutritional problems in the long-term. It should not be assumed that abnormal blood results are always directly related to the surgery itself, as there are many factors that can affect blood work results.

We are including the recommended blood tests and when to do them depending on the surgery.

Bypass and Duodenal Switch Patients:

**Blood work on the 3rd, 6th, 12th, 18th month post op and then every year:

  • Blood Chemistry (all elements, including electrolytes)
  • Complete blood count

**Blood work on the 3rd month post op and then every year:

  • Vitamin A, B12, D
  • Minerals (if they are not included on the blood chemistry): Zinc, Magnesio, Calcium, phosphorus.
  • Hepatic Function.
  • Renal Function.

*Note: If a vitamin is low, nutrition must be modified and take the vitamin blood test again 3 months after.

Gastric Sleeve and Lap Band Patients:

**Blood work on the 3rd and 6th month post op and then every year:

  • Blood Chemistry (all elements, including electrolytes)
  • Complete blood count

**Blood work on the 3rd month post op and then every year:

  • Vitamin A , B12, D
  • Minerals (if they are not included on the blood chemistry): Zinc, Magnesio, Calcium, Phosphorus.
