dc.description.abstract Mingrone et al. and Schauer et al. (April 26 issue) report the results of rigorous randomized, controlled trials comparing various types of bariatric surgery with medical therapy for obesity-associated type 2 diabetes. However, we would like to raise the important issue of micro-nutrient assessment and management in pa-tients undergoing bariatric surgery. The risk of deficiency (of thiamine; vitamins B6, B12, and D; calcium; iron; or copper, zinc, or both) is increasingly recognized after malabsorptive bariatric surgery, but these deficiencies may be inadequately diagnosed. For example, we recently described the incidence and prevalence of copper deficiency after Roux-en-Y gastric bypass surgery as 18.8% and 9.6%, respectively. en
