Traditionally, bariatric patients received their nutrition guidance from the surgeon or bariatric nurse practitioner. This teleseminar will present an overview of the procedures, their impact on nutritional status and present rationale for standardizing the nutritional care of bariatric patients. Where there is no empirical data, recommendations should be based on "expert opinion" and the dietitian is the "nutrition expert."


  • Explain the mechanism by which the Roux en Y Gastric Bypass, Gastric Sleeve and Gastric Band affect hunger, satiety and nutritional status.
  • Identify areas of nutrition care where all dietitians working with bariatric patients can standardize their nutrition recommendations.
  • Discuss standard post-op recommendations for diet stages, vitamin and mineral supplementation and evaluation and treatment of special considerations.
