Can gastric bypass cause low iron?
Click to see full answer
In this regard, what kind of iron do you need after gastric bypass?
Ferrous fumarate is the most recommended iron salt due to its higher bioavailability with 33% available as elemental iron. Ferrous fumarate is also gentler on the stomach (i.e., less constipating), another reason why it is the most common type of iron used in the bariatric surgery patient population.
Additionally, what can gastric bypass patients take for inflammation? (i.e.: Aspirin, Non steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs – Ibuprofen and naproxen, Potassium supplements, to name a few). As gastric bypass patients, you must protect yourselves.
Likewise, can low iron keep you from losing weight?
If your iron levels are low, the body cannot oxidize fat as well as it should, thereby slowing your ability to lose weight. Without enough oxygen, fatigue sets in and slows down the metabolism, which will in turn decrease total daily calorie burn.
Can gastric bypass cause autoimmune diseases?
It is not known whether bariatric surgery protects against development of autoinflammatory or autoimmune conditions; nevertheless, changes occurring in the immune system are incompletely understood. Patients in our case series were asymptomatic before surgery and developed an autoimmune disease within 11.2 months.
