In brief: Poor dietary intake

It can be due to multiple reasons, most often due to poor dietary intake in cases of malnutrition or chronic alcoholism.
Alcohol abuse causes low potassium and vitamin deficiency through a combination of poor diet and vomiting. Also any disease that interfere with the absorption of nutrients thru the gastrointestinal tract such as celiac disease can produce similar deficiencies. Hope it helps.
