List of Vitamin Deficiency Diseases
Vitamins are substances that our bodies need to develop and function normally. They include vitamins A, C, D, E, and K, choline, and the B vitamins (thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, pantothenic acid, biotin, vitamin B6, vitamin B12, and folate/folic acid). Vitamins help us grow and develop a healthy body. The best way to get enough vitamins is to enjoy a balanced diet with lots of different food types.
Vitamin deficiency is the condition of a long-term lack of vitamins. Vitamin deficiency anemia is a lack of healthy red blood cells caused when you have lower than normal amounts of certain vitamins. Vitamins that can lead to vitamin deficiency anemia include folate, vitamin B-12 and vitamin C.
Vitamin deficiency can be a primary or secondary condition. When caused by not enough vitamin intake, it is classified as a primary deficiency. When an underlying disorder such as malabsorption is the cause, it’s a secondary deficiency . An underlying disorder may be metabolic, as in a genetic defect for converting tryptophan to niacin, or it may be due to lifestyle choices that increase vitamin needs, such as smoking or drinking alcohol. Government guidelines on vitamin deficiencies advise certain intakes for healthy people, with specific values for women, men, babies, the elderly, and during pregnancy or breastfeeding. Many countries have mandated vitamin food fortification programs to prevent vitamin deficiencies.
