No Time Or Money To Eat Right Will Vitamins Make Up For Lack Of Food
No: Vitamin may help you but there is no substitue for adequate nutrition. Perhaps you need to look at your question " no time" or "money" to eat right? I would recommend you seek help with a community resource for food and assistance and perhaps some nutritional counselling. Time is the same for everyone, it is just the way you utilize it. Protect your health, it is the basis for all good living. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

What causes you to have a vitamin d deficiency (aside from lack of sun, correct foods etc usual stuff!) - methotrexate? Enbrel? Prednisone?
Not really: Good nutrition comes from nutrients in whole foods. With that said, many fruits, vegetables and foods don't necessarily supply the body with all the nutrients that it needs. For example, once a fruit or vegetable is cut from its own nutritious source, the vine or tree, etc, it begins to slowly lose some of its nutrients. This is why taking vitamins and even supplements may not be a bad idea. ...Read more

Taking supplement like Airborne and Emergen-C packets recommended for additional vitamins? Roommates think it's waste of money and doesn't work.
Save some money: Additional vitamin supplements available to consumers have not been proven to help normal people who are getting plenty of vitamins from their balanced diets (plus an inexpensive one-a-day multivitamin), and who aren't deficient in a vitamin. But, life is very subjective, so if a person believes he is helping himself by buying a second or third daily dose of vitamins, he may "feel even better". ...Read more
I've started taking folic acid forte with b complex vitamins and vit c will this increase my chance of getting pregnant or am i wasting money?
More complicated...: It won't help you get pregnant, but it may help you be healthy so you are better able to sustain a healthy pregnancy. I recommend taking a supplement with activated folate (folic acid) rather than Folic Acid for trying to get pregnant.

Lazy: Well perhaps your question really asks if vitamin d deficiency can cause fatigue, which th answer to this is yes. Laziness, however, is a lack of motivation due to choice. So soak up a reasonable amount of sun to maintain those vitamin d levels, but remember that may not kick start your drive to clean your room! all the best! ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
I don't believe it: Real vitamin deficiencies in the developed world are rare except in people on crackpot "health" diets, except vitamin d deficiency which is rampant. A full supplement should cost $10/year. The results of "diet and cancer" surveys, like most memory-based public health studies, turns up huge amounts of contradictory claims. Since vitamin deficiency doesn't mutate genes, i doubt any real cancer link. ...Read more
