How will alcohol affect me after bariatric surgery?

Alcohol may affect you more rapidly than before following bariatric surgery. Furthermore, rapid weight loss coupled with low food intake could lead to dangerously low blood sugar, putting your health at risk. It would be best to significantly limit or stop your use of alcohol following bariatric surgery for the sake of your lifelong health. In addition, some may replace one form of addiction with another and it is important to identify alcohol if it plays this role. Also, alcohol may act as a trigger that causes inappropriate eating behavior that sabotages your success.
