Expect little help: You're welcome to supplement with a cheap multivitamin-and-mineral tablet; i think this is a good idea, but no supplement i know is going to be helpful in dealing with the atypical lobular hyperplasia. Instead, simply keep up the vigilance your physicians have recommended, and should you have progression to cancer, you are most likely to get a cure. Good luck.

A 29-year-old member asked:

Have you heard about the recent research about vitamins and supplements are actually bad for us and do you think we should stop taking them?

No: Vitamins, in the right amount, are generally considered a good thing to do. I certainly wouldn't stop them based in a single report. Additionally, it is too broad a statement to infer that all vitamins should be stopped. More likely is the research may have addressed taking too much of one particular vitamin. Moderation is key; speak w/ your doctor for specifics as they pertain to your health.

Lots of 'design-flaws' in how those studies have been conducted. The doses and types of vitamins (the 'forms') aren't those shown to be helpful. The pharmaceutical industry would rather have everyone taking their products than impoving their health through other routes. Be sure to use high quality products (not all vitamins are good quality, free of contaminants, absorbed well by the body) -

Multivitamin: Taking a general multivitamin, such as centrum or one-a-day, or even prenatal or flintstones, would help you feel more energetic. Take one every day, drink plenty of water, and exercise regularly and it will help.
