I've doubled my Multivitamin

I've posted about memory loss and someone mentioned not to trust the docs so... I doubled my multivitamin. I'm taking 2 Materna a day and I feel soooooo much better. However, today I doubled my calories and had a crazy binge. So much so that I had sharp pains in my sides. So yes, the title is deceiving but bloody hell I am SCREWEDDDDDDD.

How often are you getting blood work?

If you overate, take frequent very very tiny sips of water to try to flush some of the excess food out of your pouch. That can be very painful. Also try laying on your side, which may help. Sitting up may be too much pressure on the pouch.

The last time I had my bloodwork was in October at my 1 year check up. When are we supposed to go in next? 18 months? 2 years? I'm at Humber River. How often do you get it done? What's the recommendation? Darn. I should be on top of this.

Because I am diabetic (well controlled with diet and exercise in the normal range) I have my bloodwork done every 3 months. My GP signs the requisition for blood, checks off the tests he wants and tells me to fill in whatever my Bariatric Clinic wants. I add a few that the forum recommends. Talk to your GP about your symptoms and ask if you can have your bloodwork done more frequently, and tell them about trying to keep on top of vitamin and mineral deficiencies before they become a real problem. Hope this helps.

It certainly does. I will visit my doctor and be on top of this. Thanks for planting the seed :)

Just a caution, but be careful with vitamins and other supplements. It may not be ok to double your dose without running it by your doctor. It's easy to think of these as "healthy" but more difficult to remember that they may be harmful in anything other than recommended dosages.
