Does alcohol cause any vitamin deficiences? If so how do I know if I need to take extra supplements?

Does alcohol cause any vitamin deficiences? If so how do I know if I need to take extra supplements?

Yes: Alcoholism is associated with, among other things, B12 and Folic Acid deficiencies. You should not, however, have a problem if you eat right, exercise, and drink alcohol only in moderation. If you are an alcoholic then vitamin deficiency is only a part of the problem, and the problems won't improve until the alcohol abuse stops no matter how many supplements you take.

Which vitamins should you take when going through alcohol withdrawal?

Which vitamins should you take when going through alcohol withdrawal?

Thiamine, folate (folic acid): Thiamine and folate (folic acid) are the most common vitamin deficiencies. Multivitamins are commonly included during withdrawal treatment. Nutritional support is important because patients are often malnourished, but can be problematic early in the process if withdrawal symptoms are severe. Withdrawal is a serious condition and must be monitored in the hospital rather than attempted at home.

Seek real love: Health does not come out of a pill bottle, even "vitamins". You need something in your life to give you joy and beauty and meaning so you won't want to scramble your brain any more with that stuff. For most of us, this is found in love of a person, a community, a good cause, or perhaps something spiritual. Be the best person you can be in the hopes of finding the realm item.

Stop: Alcohol is a metabolic poison and can affect heart function as well. Consider getting your heart checked out, possibly by 2d echo. Consider coenzyme q10 supplementation. Cut back on quantity of alcohol or stop.

Can alcohol cause a decrease in vitamin e?

Can alcohol cause a decrease in vitamin e?

Unsure: There are few studies in humans on this that I have been able to locate. Some of the damage that alcohol does to the body involves increases in oxidizing substances, where anti-oxidants can help prevent damage, and vitamin E is an anti-oxidant. Some people feel that extra vitamin E may be helpful in those with alcoholism, but there is no real proof of this. 15-30 mg of vit e would be reasonable.

I'm suffering alcohol withdrawals. Do vitamin's help?

I'm suffering alcohol withdrawals. Do vitamin's help?

Vitamins, herbs and:: Congratulations on stopping. The first 1-2 days are the hardest. Alcohol withdrawal can be dangerous; one can even get seizures. I advise a good multivit., a B-complex that has the L-5-MTHF form of folate (folic acid). Niacineamide 500 mg 3x/day, Magnesium as taurate or glycinate. Kudzu and Holy Basil are useful herbs. The homeopathic medicine Nux Vomica 30c often helps a lot. See http://tinyurl. Com/7xkbuk6

I am taking medicine and vitamin, I drank 1 glass of alcohol. Will it be poisonous? Will I die?

I am taking medicine and vitamin, I drank 1 glass of alcohol. Will it be poisonous? Will I die?

Depression: Call your doctor and ask this question, without knowing what you are taking it is difficult to answer although it is hard to imagine you could die from taking a prescribed medication and a vitamin with one drink. Call your prescribing doctor and don't continue drinking. Best.

My vitamins say they contain polyvinyl alcohol. Will this make a drug test positive for alcohol?

No, however...: No, this chemical does not have any real relationship to the type of alcohol we drink and will not raise your alcohol level one bit. However, while considered non-toxic, I do not think it's wise to take a vitamin with synthetic chemicals like this. It is probably a sign that this is not the best quality vitamin; there are many better choices. See http://tinyurl. Com/mzrkbx8

Can prenatal vitamins cancel out alcohol use?

No: Taking prenatal vitamins does not cancel out the effects of alcohol abuse in an adult. Also, taking prenatal vitamins does not cancel out the damaging effects of alcohol on the fetus, by a alcohol abusing pregnant woman. However, a pregnant woman should take prenatal vitamins whether or not she drinks alcohol.

Will anything, apart from alcohol affect anti depressants? Will any vitamins like vitamin C or anything affect it?

Will anything, apart from alcohol affect anti depressants? Will any vitamins like vitamin C or anything affect it?

It depends...: There are many different antidepressants making it hard to generalize. For example, MAO inhibitors (not widely prescribed) are affected by many foods that contain tyramines. Grapefruit juice can affect levels of some antidepressants like sertraline. But most antidepressants aren't affected by food or vitamins. You can go to websites like www. Drugs. Com to see all known interactions for a given med.

I have been told my mean corpuscular volume is high. I have moderated my alcohol intake and begun taking a multi-vitamin. What can it cause?

Vitamin deficiency: Large (macrocytic) red blood cells usually result from a deficiency of vitamin B12 or Folic Acid (folate). If you are taking those and your macrocytes don't improve, you may not be able to absorb the vitamins from you GI tract. You may wish to see your doctor again or consult a hematologist if things don't improve.

How much alcohol consumption is safe in a day? If vitamin B12 levels below normal in a social drinker, how to correct, what regime to follow?

Find the cause: One number that's held up is 5 or more alcoholic drinks on any one day more than once a week means you're heading for loss of control. The cause of the vitamin B12 deficiency needs to be found. If you're a vegetarian, consider giving it up or supplementing. If your diet is okay or you supplement, an investigation for pernicious anemia ; other causes will be undertaken by your physician.
