Diet, Supplements and Medications After MGB: Nutritional Outcomes; Avoidance of Iron Deficiency; MGB in Vegetarians

Mini-Gastric Bypass (MGB) and One Anastomosis Gastric Bypass (OAGB) are rapidly becoming popular bariatric procedures. The data regarding nutrition following MGB-OAGB are scarce, making it difficult to standardize the follow-up nutritional regime. In this chapter, we evaluate the physiologic changes after MGB-OAGB, partly based on experience with RYGB and collective clinical experience of MGB-OAGB patients. Suggestions are made at the end of the chapter, based on these data, regarding future research and directions.
