Hair loss with gastric bypass surgery

Hair loss with gastric surgery

Hair loss is common with various forms of gastric surgery. The surgery itself and the micronutrient deficiencies that occur all can lead to hair loss.


What blood tests are important to order with gastric surgery?

Iron, zinc are the most important, but I also check B12, selenium, copper, thyroid status (TSH),
