Bloodwork after gastric sleeve

Even though the gastric sleeve is not technically a malabsorptive procedure, vitamin deficiencies can rarely arise.  For this reason we recommend:

  • Starting 6 months post-op, then every 6-12 months
    • Complete blood count (CBC)
    • Comprehensive metabolic profile (CMP)
    • Vitamin levels
    • Vit D25, folate, B6, B12, and whole blood thiamine
    • Iron – TIBC, Serum iron
    • Optional
      • Hemoglobin A1C
      • Thyroid: TSH
      • Lipid profile
