The developer of Bari Life Bariatric Supplements, Dr. Stephen G. Boyce, and Registered Dietitian Ciara Csanadi House, MS, RD, LDN, explain the lifestyle and dietary changes required to ensure success after weight loss surgery.
Knoxville, TN – Dr. Stephen G. Boyce, the founder of Bari Life Bariatric Supplements, has extensive experience performing weight loss surgeries to treat patients suffering from morbid obesity.
The Knoxville bariatric surgeon, who is also the Medical Director of The New Life Center for Bariatric Surgery, and Registered Dietitian Ciara Csanadi House, recently discussed some of the lifestyle and dietary changes necessary for many patients after choosing to undergo bariatric surgery.
Dr. Boyce and Ciara note that patients often need additional vitamin and mineral supplements after certain types of bariatric surgery procedures because it is much harder for their bodies to absorb the nutrients they need in their diet alone.
Without supplements, nutritional deficiencies can develop, which can lead to serious health conditions. “Depending on the surgery and individual person, most patients will need protein supplements the rest of their lives to meet their protein needs.
