How does vitamin deficiency cause hallucination?

1 doctor answer
Dr. Deepti Saxena

Vitamins: Vitamins and minerals are vital for us. Even deficient in vitamin B12 may cause impaired cell division to slow down. When this slow impaired cell division occurs, red blood cells are enlarged and are more likely to be destroyed by the immune system. Hence, even vitamin B12 deficiency can cause hallucination apart from gastrointestinal problems as well as neurological problems.
