Calcium is the most abundant mineral found in our blood, and plays a major role in the way our bodies function. While calcium’s primary function is building strong bones and keeping them healthy, it is also plays an important role in the blood PH balance of the body and is necessary for nerve transmission and muscle contractions. The changes made to your digestive system during bariatric procedures make it challenging for your body to digest and absorb vitamins and nutrients as it had previously.

What is Vitamin B12?
Vitamin B12 is required for neurological function, carbohydrate metabolism, energy production, and cognitive brain function. Vitamin B12 is water soluble, meaning your body does not store it. If you consume more B12 than your body needs, your kidneys will filter out what your body cannot use and excrete it through your urine.
Now when I started this blog the other day it was late—too late to chat about sleep deprivation. I just couldn’t give advice when I was absolutely doing the opposite. I went to bed. In what seemed like a few minutes I was awakened. It was not the alarm but a phone call at 4 a.m. from a family member locked out of their house!! How ironic is that? I go to bed to get some sleep and end up awake and on the road to take a set of house keys to someone. It was probably sleep deprivation that caused her to forget the keys.

Sometimes we really don’t think of all the aspects WLS can have on our bodies including our dental health. Many patients who undergo Weight Loss Surgery have distinct gastrointestinal systems that may require unique care. Your dental team should be aware of your surgery as well as any medications you are taking.

Most of us need to supplement today’s typical diet with calcium even if we have not had weight loss surgery because of the lack of calcium rich foods in our diet. Consuming adequate amounts of dark green leafy vegetables like spinach, kale, turnips, and collard greens, or eating broccoli, and seafood like shrimp, sardines and salmon as well as low fat dairy, almonds, oranges, papaya, and soy products can be difficult to fit in with our busy on-the-go lifestyles.
Are you feeling fatigued, weak, having difficulty maintaining your balance, encountering depression, confusion, poor memory and soreness of the mouth and tongue you just may be experiencing Vitamin B12 deficiency. I must admit I suffer from bouts of poor memory frequently and have just chalked it up to old age! I guess I could benefit from having my B12 levels checked after doing my research for this article.
