Are you vegan?: How do you know you have a deficiency? If your doctor diagnosed, what did the doctor recommend? Why aren't you following that recommendation? Don't overthink it. If you self-diagnosed, the dosage of 1000 mcg is extremely high and unnecessary. I am more concerned why someone your age has such a critical deficiency. Don't overdoes and waste your money. ...Read more
In some cases: We don't really know what causes fibromyalgia. Some studies have found that many who have fibromyalgia have vitamin d deficiency, while others have not found this.

Can I take a women's multivitamin, magnesium, zinc, b12, super b complex and asian panax daily? Age 22
Probably not: If you have had lab tests that say you are deficient you need to take the vitamins that are low. Your doc will advise. Also, over the counter multivitamins are typically very weak. Look on the label to make sure that many of the ingredients are well beyond 100% of the recommended daily allowance and you will have a better brand. Peace and good health. ...Read more
Can G6PD deficient kids under 5 take multi vitamin supplements? Are all vitamins safe for such kids?
Standard types safe: The standard types of multi-vitamins or multi-vitamins plus minerals are as safe for children with G6PD deficiency as they are for non-G6PD-deficient children.

Rest of the finding suggest and autoimmune process, but you need to consult a physician for a thorough evaluation. ...Read more
Depends!: The answer to your question depends upon which MVI (multivitamin) to which you are referring. They're all different so you'll need to read the labels. The more difficult question to answer is how much is enough b vitamins. There's the rda or something like that. It's based upon minimum amount to prevent disease rather than amount necessary for optimal health. So the answer remains controversial. ...Read more
