Vitamin B-12 deficiency can have many causes. Diet. Vitamin B-12 is only found in meats. With modern convenience foods, it's possible to eat a lot but still not g…et enough B-12. Also, vegetarians/vegans will have no supply at all (some vegetables like soy have B-12, but not in a form the human body can digest). Increasing meats and dairy products in your diet (especially clams, mollusks and liver) will increase dietary B-12. Fortified breakfast cereals are also a good source of B-12. Digestive problems. Getting B-12 out of your stomach and into your bloodstream is remarkably complicated. Any medical issues affecting the gastrointestinal tract can result in B-12 deficiency, including simple old age. Crohn's disease, IBS and others do too. Medications. Quite a few medications can interfere with B-12 absorption, as well as smoking and drinking. The most common culprits are antacids and migraine medication. Gastric bypass or other gastrointestional surgery like stomach cancer removal. Many gastric surgical procedures will remove tissue required for proper vitamin B-12 uptake. Other medical issues. Many other medical issues can result in B-12 deficiency indirectly. Examples are chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, diabetes, and arthritis. If you have any problems with B-12 deficiency, you're best off getting supplementation. And if you have any digestive issues, surgery or medications that interfere with digestion you're best off with either B-12 shots (painful, inconvenient, expensive) or vitamin B-12 transdermal patches (easy, cheap, pain free - you just stick one on your neck for twenty four hours and that's it). If you supplement, be sure to avoid cobalamin or cyanocobalamin in favour of methylcobalamin. Methylcobalamin is the form your border needs B-12 to be in; otherwise it has to work to turn cobalamin into methylcobalamin.
Short term it can cause bone problems and impropercalcium/phosphorus balance. Long term, it can cause things likecancer, autoimmune disease. It can also cause depression.
Rickets in childrens and osteomalacia in adults and fractures may occur.
Scurvy. Lack of vitamin C can also result in frequent nose bleeds. Scurvy is the main one. It's not very common now, but it was a big problem back when sailors would be off …at sea for months with no access to fresh fruits or vegetables. Lack of vitamin C leads to scurvy. (That's why British sailors ate limes, and were called "Limeys".)
The lack of Vitamin D in your diet can cause you to have rickets. beriberi
I think lack of vitamin C can cause unhealthy nails to grow and unhealthy hair
Can cause eye problems such as a lack of night vision,tiredness and skin problems vitamin A , just like any other vitamin it have no calories or in more nerdy way it cant prov…ide enough ATP (basic unit or currency of energy in our body) BUT it is reffered to as vital for life because it is involved in countless biochemical reactions (as enzyme or cofactor or essential component ) which provide ATP and execute many functions . vitamin a deficiency would most severely affect eye sight (night blindness) hair nails skin metabolic rate etc
Scurvy is caused by lack of vitamin C. I`m telling you EAT YOUR VITAMIN C.
It is actually Beriberi. Beriberi is caused by a deficiency of thiamine (vitamin B1) in the diet.
It depends on the type of vitamin. For example, lack of vitamin A can cause night blindness, lack of vitamin B1 can cause beriberi, lack of B2 can cause Pellagra, lack of vita…min C can cause scurvy, and lack of vitamin D can cause rickets in children and osteoporosis.
deficiency and weakness in body
Hi Vitamin A deficiency: night blindness and flaky skin. B complex deficiency : B1: Nerve problems (beriberi), heart muscle weakness, and edaema. B2: Immflamation of eyes and …skin. B3: Pellagra: (Dermatitis and mental illness), nervous system disorders. B5: Loss of co-ordination. B6: Convulsions, irritability, and anaemia. B9: Digestive disorders and anaemia. B12: Pernicious anaemia. Biotin (vitamin H): Muscle and mental issues. Vitamin C: Scurvy and skin degeneration, and that of muscles, blood vessels, and bone. Vitamin D: Rickets and skeletal deformity. Vitamin E: Muscle and reproductive disorders.
Yes it can I think it would be better said, that lack of good nutrition can cause all kinds of problems, not just vision; your entire nervous system requires feeding and …with a whole load of different fuels - vitamins, minerals, amino acids.
Almost every disease can be caused by a lack of vitamins. If you take the right about of vitamins every day then you chances for getting a disease will be much less. The only …way you could get another disease would be another thing that is not related to vitamins like cigarettes or something that is known to cause disease. But now just because you don't have all your vitamins does not mean that you are going to get a disease it just means your lacking in the vitamins and you need more. But to get a disease or something related to vitamins you will have to be deficient in vitamins for a long time and have another force that would help the bringing on of that disease.
