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

Consider a better: approach, HFLC, often far more effective. Study: DietDoctor.com. Conversely, LFHC foods are associated with ?ed incidence of acneform sebacious gland infections & lesions. While Accutane & benzoyl peroxide (in many formulations), tends to calm lesions, for many replacing LFHC foods with HFLC foods ends up far more effective.

Then take Vit D!!!: Low D is associated with chronic pain, increased risk of heart disease & cancer & reduced longevity. In spring & summer we can get adequate D from mid-day sun without protection.

Be careful.: Regardless of what you have read on "natural health" web sites, there is no credible evidence that oral vitamin d is an effective treatment for psoriasis. High doses can raise your calcium levels to the point where you can develop kidney stones and other serious medical problems. 800-1000 iu is a safe daily dosage to prevent vitamin d deficiency. ...Read more

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
