Recommended daily intake for: b-complex, vitamin b-12, vitamin a, vitamin k, vitamin e, magnesium and potassium?
Depends: If you look at any multivitamin bottle, there will be a rda (recommended daily allowance) for the different components. There is very little evidence out there that surpassing rda will treat or prevent any disease. From my field (ophthalmology), people who have moderate to severe macular degeneration can benefit from higher levels of a, c, e, and zinc, but the benefit is relatively small. ...Read more

It is not known what happens when a woman takes various drugs or chemicals, nor what is actually in various tablets or potions sold in stores or online.

Reasonable but...: All of those sound reasonable but in order to know if it si healthy I would like to know how much carbohydrates, sugars and fats and what type of fats.

If not, it may have significant pesticide residues. Consider adding fresh fruit and/or nuts. ...Read more
Find cause: I'm going to assume that you were tested by a reputable lab; there are fake "nutrition labs." d3 deficiency is common due to diet and lack of sun exposure. If you are vitamin a and zinc deficient on a reasonably normal non-vegetarian diet, you may have malabsorption. If you are B12 deficient non-vegan, you are likely to be seriously sick & need a proper workup. Get with a dr you rightly trust. ...Read more

Dx osteoporosis & vit d insufficiency, take vit D3 & ca supplements (500mg citrate), can ca supplements be the cause to raised serum calcium?
Yes: Calcium supplements can potentially raise the serum calcium level, but in an otherwise healthy person they would typically not do so. The bigger question is why a 26 year old person would have osteoporosis, and it usually would take more than a vitamin d deficiency; if you haven't had one a thorough work up by an endocrinologist would be indicated. ...Read more

A & D- very rare: One can only overdose on fat soluble vitamins (a, d, e) except vit. B6 (which should be limited to 250 mg/day). But it takes huge amounts to overdose. The average adult would need to take about 2 million units of a to overdose, or 200, 000 iu/day for several months. Vit d toxicity is rare unless one takes at least 40, 000 iu/day for months.
