What are the symptoms of choline deficiency?
Mild choline deficiency can cause fatigue, insomnia, poor ability of your kidneys to concentrate urine, problems with memory, and nerve-muscle imbalances. Choline deficiency can also cause deficiency of another B vitamin, folate. Extreme choline deficiency can cause liver dysfunction, cardiovascular disease, impaired growth, abnormalities in bone formation, lack of red blood cell formation, infertility, respiratory distress and failure to thrive in newborns, kidney failure, anemia, and high blood pressure. Because your body can't make the neurotransmitter acetyl choline without choline, deficiency may lead to high blood pressure and respiratory distress. Because your body can't easily make a cell membrane component, phosphatidylcholine, without choline, deficiency may lead to kidney failure and lack of red blood cell formation. Choline deficiency particularly affects your liver, because a lack of choline prevents your liver from packaging and transporting fat in a natural pattern. The primary symptom of this change in fat-packaging is a decrease in your blood level of very low-density lipoprotein (VLDL), a complex fat-containing molecule that your liver uses to transport fat. As part of this same pattern, levels of triglycerides in your blood can also become greatly increased as a result of choline deficiency.

Vitamins are nutrients that are normally found in food. In theory,eating a balanced diet gives you all the nutrients you need.However, because of varying factors like soil depletion infarmlands, storage and cooking methods, digestive issues, etc., wesometimes do not get all the nutrients we need fro…m our food. Symptoms This can lead to various deficiencies of chemicals in ourbodies, which can, in turn, cause other problems such as organmalfunctions, anemia, failure to build or maintain strong bones,and a variety of others depending on which factors are missing.When the missing nutrients are vitamins, we are said to suffer froma vitamin deficiency. There are a variety of opinions about how many vitamins we need,and how much we need to supplement our normal diets. Since mostvitamins are relatively harmless, it would seem that taking a goodmultivitamin every day with a meal , could be helpful while,at the same time, causing no harm. Your physician may advise you totake individual supplements to treat specific conditions. Vitamin supplements should always be taken when taking antibiotics,as the medication affects the bacteria in our gut that manufacturesome of the vitamins and other nutrients we need to stay healthyand fight off infection.

"Studies have shown that a deficiency of Vitamin B12 can lead to abnormal neurological and psychiatric symptoms. These symptoms may include: ataxia (shaky movements and unsteady gait), muscle weakness, spasticity, incontinence, hypotension, vision problems, dementia, psychoses, and mood disturbances…. Researchers report that these symptoms may occur when Vitamin B12 levels are just slightly lower than normal and are considerably above the levels normally associated with anemia. People at risk for Vitamin B12 deficiency include strict vegetarians, elderly people, and people with increased Vitamin B12 requirements associated with pregnancy, thyrotoxicosis, hemolytic anemia, hemorrhage, malignancy, liver or kidney disease. Administering Vitamin B12 orally, intramuscularly, or intra-nasally is effective for preventing and treating dietary Vitamin B12 deficiency. An oral dose of 100-250 micrograms/day is usually adequate, although patients with absorption difficulties may need 1,000 micrograms/day of Vitamin B12. Oral preparations should not be used in patients with diarrhea, vomiting, severe neurological involvement, or in patients likely to be noncompliant to therapy."

It is an essential nutrient in the brain. Choline, a water-soluble nutrient, is the newest official member of the B vitamin family. Even though it has only recently been adopted as a vitamin, choline has been the subject of nutritional study for almost 150 years. Adolph Strecker discovered cho…line in 1864 and it was chemically synthesized in 1866. In the late 1930s, scientists discovered that tissue from the pancreas contained a substance that could help prevent fatty build-up in the liver. This substance was named choline after the Greek word chole , which means bile. Today, we know that choline is a component of every human cell. In 1975, scientists discovered that choline increased the synthesis and release of acetylcholine by neurons. These discoveries lead to the increased interest in dietary choline and brain function. In 1998, choline was classified as an essential nutrient by the Food and Nutrition Board of the Institute of Medicine (USA). ( Full Answer )

Vitamin C is vital for the general health of people. Deficiency causes a disease called scurvy which is characterised by bleeding, swollen gums and teeth. Deficiency of any vitamin causes serious disorders as they are required for the normal functioning of the body. Scurvy leads to the formatio…n of brown spots on the the skin (especially on the thighs and legs), spongy gums, and bleeding from all mucous membranes. People with scurvy look pale, feel depressed, and are partially immobilized. In advanced scurvy there are open, puss-oozing wounds, loss of teeth, and eventually, death. Nobel prize winners Linus Pauling and G. C. Willis have asserted that chronic, long-term, low blood levels of vitamin C ("chronic scurvy") is a cause of atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries). Full-blown scurvy is rare in the developed world, but common symptoms associated with vitamin C deficiency include: . Poor wound healing . Weak immune function, including susceptibility to colds and other infections . Respiratory infection and other lung-related conditions can also be symptoms of vitamin C deficiency ( Full Answer )

It is rare for anyone in the developed world to have a niacin deficiency. In the United States, alcoholism is the main cause of naicin deficiency. Intestinal problems, including chronic diarrhea, inflammatory bowel disease, and irritable bowel disease can all trigger niacin deficiency. Because part …of your body's niacin supply comes from conversion of the amino acid tryptophan, deficiency of tryptophan can also increase risk of niacin deficiency. (Foods rich in tryptophan include crimini mushrooms, soybeans, tofu, sunflower seeds, spinach, and asparagus.) The conversion of tryptophan to niacin also requires the presence of thiamine and vitamin B6, and when thiamine or B6 are deficient, niacin can also become deficient. Niacin deficiency also appears to be related to vitamin B12 status, since even mild deficiencies in vitamin B12 can increase loss of niacin in the urine. Physical trauma, all types of stress, long-term fever, and excessive consumption of alcohol have also been associated with increased risk of niacin deficiency. Symptoms of mild deficiency include indigestion, fatigue, canker sores, vomiting, and depression. Severe deficiency can cause a condition known as pellagra. Pellagra is characterized by cracked, scaly skin, dementia, and diarrhea. It is generally treated with a nutritionally balanced diet and niacin supplements. Niacin deficiency also causes burning in the mouth and a swollen, bright red tongue. ( Full Answer )

Because copper is involved in many functions of the body, copper deficiency produces an extensive range of symptoms. These symptoms include anemia, ruptured blood vessels, osteoporosis, joint problems, brain disturbances, elevated LDL cholesterol and reduced HDL cholesterol levels, increased suscept…ibility to infections due to poor immune function, loss of pigment in the hair and skin, weakness, fatigue, breathing difficulties, skin sores, poor thyroid function, and irregular heart beat. Certain medical conditions including chronic diarrhea, celiac sprue, and Crohn's disease result in decreased absorption of copper and may increase the risk of developing a copper deficiency. Unlike most minerals, copper is absorbed from the stomach, and proper levels of stomach acid are important for this absorption. People with low stomach acid (hypochlorhydria) or those who take antacids may be at increased risk of copper deficiency. Because zinc can compete with copper and interfere with its absorption, people who supplement with inappropriately high levels of zinc and lower levels of copper may increase their risk of copper deficiency. Inadequate copper status can also occur in infants fed only cow's milk without supplemental copper. ( Full Answer )

Because manganese plays a role in a variety of enzyme systems, manganese deficiency can affect many physiological processes, and can cause nausea, vomiting, high blood sugar, skin rash, loss of hair color, excessive bone loss, low cholesterol levels, dizziness, hearing loss, and a poorly functioning… reproductive system. Severe manganese deficiency in infants can cause paralysis, convulsions, blindness, and deafness, and may lead to impaired growth, skeletal abnormalities, and defects in carbohydrate and fat metabolism. In addition, manganese deficiency may lead to ataxia, a movement disorder characterized by lack of muscle coordination and balance caused by poor development of the otoliths, the structures in the inner ear that are responsible for equilibrium. However, manganese deficiency is very rare in humans, and does not usually develop unless manganese is deliberately eliminated from the diet. In addition, magnesium may substitute for manganese in certain enzyme systems if manganese is deficient, thereby allowing your body to function normally despite the deficiency. ( Full Answer )
