Is anyone familiar with the line of vitamins & supplements by Andrew Lessman? This is the guy who is on HSN alot. I know they are supposed to be very good.....they are also rather expensive. Any info will be appreciated.

Alt Weight Loss Surgery Insurance
Yes, you can often get insurance cover for your Weight Loss Surgery.
Our own Craig "Big-T" Thompson has been there and done that, and he's written an e-book about it.

Never heard of them...are they chewable or formulated for specific patients? I use the Bariatric Advantedge line...specifically formulated for us RNY'rs!

FOUND IT!!! http://www.procapslabs.com/PCL/Pages...PCLLifeRx.aspx

They look REALLY expensive.....but really no different from anything else. They do say all natural etc. Not sure of any real advantage here, considering the price?!?!?!

I use the Optisource vitamins that are formulated especially for WLS patients. I get them from the store at my doctor's office. They are yummy!

NYGAL take it.
DR. ahmad has probably changed
his guidelines here from my surgery
to yours. I developed a bleeding
ulcer at a little over a year......
so this med for 90 days prevents that.
PLZ do as he says....

as far as kidney stones it comes with rapid weightloss.
I didnt get any. I also took that actigal pills to
protect my gall bladder from stones during
rapid weight loss.
when i had surgery he only required tums
4 times a day. and i know he must have
revised this from patients developing ulcers
as i did.

HUGS>.....now back on thread topic.........
i have seen that guy on the shopping channels
and is vitamins but i guess i can t afford the
high priced supplements so have stuck with
what my surgeon recommended. Was it the right
choice or not who knows. 2 years out im getting
deficient now so who knows!
