I am a 20 year old vegetarian. Are there any vitamin supplements I should take to account for the deficit left by not eating meat?

I am a 20 year old vegetarian. Are there any vitamin supplements I should take to account for the deficit left by not eating meat?

Perhaps: If meat is the only food you're avoiding, you should be fine. If you are vegan and not having anything from animals (like eggs, dairy, fish), you'd have to make sure to get adequate protein, and you would probably need some supplemental B12 and calcium. Make sure your diet is balanced (vegetables, fruits, protein, good fats including omega 3 fatty acids, and whole grains). ...Read more

I eat only salad for lunch n dinner.Which vitamin supplement should I take so that my body is not deficient of vitamins.I eat yogurt n apple for b'fas?

Nutrition: Vitamins are not in any way the answer here. For life to continue, you need fats and you need proteins in your diet. In fact you need your calories to be 60% made up of proteins. If you are not consuming some fats and proteins your body begins to eat itself. Your organs get damaged. Your immune system fails. You can die. It is not about vitamins! ...Read more

Which vitamin supplements should I take I am already 75mg thyroxine and 50mg of fluoxetine daily?

If depressed . . . : Depression and hypothyroidism do often run together, but thyroxin alone may not eliminate your depression. For my depressed patients i often suggest a high epa fish oil such as omega-brite, so that they can have at least 1-2 grams epa/day in only 3 capsules. Take this with full meals. Also, consider a multivit that contains 1000mcg l-methylfolate & 1000mcg B12 (methylcobalamin) daily as well. ...Read more

WHY?: Why B12? No harm. No toxic dose. Any dose is safe. Do you take stomach med? Metformin? Are you vegetarian? Intestinal disorder. Eating disorder? If none of this applies to you, then you are wasting your money on B12. Have you had stomach surgery? Pernicious anemia? None of this is influenced by Zoloft (sertraline) or Lexotanil. ...Read more
