Hi Dr. Vinod,
Thank you for your response. Im taking all my required vitamins: Vit b12, D, Calcium & a multi vitamin. Ive also had blood work done & my nutrition levels are good. BUT, im not working out at all. I walk maybe 15 min a day, & that's all. What exactly is a mineral checkup? What vitamin would supply this? I will do as you say & see an Ortho Dr regarding muscle loss. I also was just recently diagnosed w/a pituitary tumor, so im wondering if this has anything to do w/the loss of muscle...
Gastric bypass surgery can decrease your hunger and you can lose weight. If you are not supporting yourself with proper diet then you will have problems with absorption of the required quantities of essential vitamins and minerals like calcium.
I would suggest you to go for a mineral checkup and to follow up with a physician. You also would need to follow up with an orthopedician to rule out muscle loss or any other orthopedic issues with respect to your knee joint.
Take all the required supplements.
