Bariatric surgery often improves health outcomes for morbidly obese patients and is increasing in popularity. Nutritional deficiencies represent a relevant long-term clinical problem in patients who underwent bariatric surgery as a result of modifications to the gastrointestinal anatomy and physiology, which could impact macro- and micro-nutrient absorption and occasionally lead to protein-energy malnutrition3 (PEM). Nutritional deficiency due to loss of follow up and non-compliance with routine mineral and multivitamin supplements is not uncommonly encountered following bariatric surgery.
