After a very successful 1st online support group meeting we just couldn’t wait to host the next one. It’s a great way to follow up and ensure that all is well with our patients.
Miloni Sancheti spoke about Superfoods, foods that have varied benefits even in smaller amounts. She gave some tips on how to incorporate these foods in the diet. Her presentation can be viewed by clicking on the link below.
This was followed by a talk on few common concerns post bariatric surgery by Mariam Lakdawala. She spoke about dumping syndrome, hair loss, sweating while eating food and protein intolerance as these are very common and can be managed well with nutritional management.

Since the theme was to know about each other’s Quarantine stories we threw the discussion open to all our patients. Everyone had one thing in common, they were getting quality time with their families. It’s during such tough times where family matters the most!Dr. Aparna Govil Bhasker reinforced the importance of regular supplementation and lifestyle modification.
