Happy New Year!
I know I’ve been remiss about posting here regularly; but do get comments on my older posts – so I know folks are finding this site and still benefiting from previous posts.
Today, I want to give you an update on where I’m at in my post-op journey….
First, if you haven’t already, enter your name and email above to get my free report: The TRUTH About Weight Loss Surgery. It’s eye opening and covers some very important things that could benefit anyone, regardless if they are pre-op, or post-op.
Now for my update.
I’m doing fair. The reactive hypoglycemia is an ongoing issue. I have to eat a little bit of something every 2-3 hours to keep my blood sugar stabilized. My iron levels seem to have stabilized. I changed my iron supplement to carbonyl iron with vitamin C, that I get from Vitalady.com and so far, that seems to be doing a pretty decent job at keeping my iron & ferritin levels up.
Since I have osteoporosis and I take Vitalady Tender Dry Vitamin D3-50 (50,000IU) once a week (also from Vitalady). I also take Vitalady Tender Calcium Citrate Only 300mg(elemental) from Vitalady. I do have hyperparathyroidism, which honestly is the bulk of my current complaints and health issues (click the link to read the list of symptoms – I have nearly every one. Enough said – it’s not fun!). This means I need to increase my calcium even more!
Protein shakes: my favorite is Champion Pure Whey Stack. Not only does this protein taste great, it does NOT contain sucralose (NutraSweet), which I am allergic to. Let me give you a bit of advice about buying protein; get samples first! What I love, you may hate – and protein is not cheap. I like ordering my protein from Vitalady, because she offers samples! So you can try before you buy a larger container. ;)
Overall – I’m fair. The hyperparathyroid symptoms are awful; but with increasing my supplements, I will overcome this and feel better. To say that supplements are important is an understatement. They’re critical.
Are you a weight loss surgery post-op? If so, how far post-op are you and how is your health?
