Vitamin Injections for Gastric Sleeve Patient.

Patient

Q: In about a month I will be having weight loss surgery- a gastric sleeve. I understand that I will be on a strict regimen of vitamins. Instead of orally taking these vitamins, I was wondering if there was a way that I could inject the vitamins into my body daily.

Symptoms:  N/a
Doctor

A:   Hi,

Welcome to Ask The Doctor.

Most vitamins have injections present as well. You can consult your Surgeon to get these injections.

However, in some cases, it is better to take Oral Vitamins rather than Injections.
