Understanding Vitamin B Deficiency

Understanding Vitamin B Deficiency

There are 8 different types of Vitamin B and each one is needed to maintain your health and keep you feeling good. Types of vitamin B include Thiamine (B1), Riboflavin (B2) Niacin (B3) B5, B6, Biotin (B7) Folate (B9) and B12.

Vitamin B comes from a variety of sources including meat, fruits and vegetables. Eating balanced meals is essential to getting all of the B complex vitamins you need. There are some medical conditions that can take their toll if you are deficient in one or more of these B vitamins.

Symptoms of Vitamin B Deficiency

Vitamin B deficiency can affect your health in a number of ways depending on which of the B vitamins you may lack. Here are some of the symptoms of vitamin B deficiency.

  • Fatigue
  • Weight loss
  • Poor hair and nails
  • Acne
  • Skin Rashes
  • Repeated sore throats
  • Sensitivity to Sunlight
  • Metal confusion
  • Tingling of skin, fingers and toes
  • High blood pressure
  • Water retention
  • Depression
  • Insomnia
  • Pain and Weakness in limbs
  • Compromised immune system
  • Birth Defects when pregnant women are deficient in vitamin B9

As you can see, many of the symptoms of vitamin B deficiency can also be symptoms of other health problems. If you suffer from any of these symptoms it is essential that you visit your physician and get a diagnosis. Make sure to consult with your physician if you think your symptoms may be related to a vitamin B deficiency.

Even if you normally do not suffer from a vitamin B deficiency there may be times in your life such as when you become pregnant or as you get older; when you need a larger amount of B vitamins. There are also certain medical conditions such as Crohn’s disease, Celiac Disease and alcoholism that can make it difficult for your body to absorb vitamin B.

Treatment for Vitamin B Deficiencies

If it is determined that you do have a vitamin B deficiency, your doctor will probably recommend changes in your diet, as well as supplements to ensure that you get the needed nutrients. Your doctor will determine if you need a supplement for just one of the B vitamins or a combination.

You should not attempt to diagnose a vitamin B deficiency on your own, as taking too much of the wrong vitamin Bs for you could further imbalance a deficiency.

Eating a healthy, well-rounded diet, and knowing the symptoms of a vitamin B deficiency will help you to identify problems before they turn into major issues. Getting your doctor to diagnose your vitamin B deficiency, and following his or her treatment plan should help you to feel better and stay fit.
