vitamin b deficiency
A: Vitamin B is necessary for the integrity of oral soft tissue ,that is tougue,oral mucosa,gingiva etc.Vitamin C is as important for all these including the periodontal tissue(structures which supports the tooth).
But tooth is a hard tissue,it has not got any direct impact with b deficiency,but when the condition arises there may be ulcers in the oral cavity,inflammation of tongue(glossitis) gingival bleeding and it could lead to periodontal weakning and loosening of the teeth
Q: Can a dry skin be attributed to a vitamin B deficiency?

Q: what are the symptoms of Vitamin B deficiency in horses?
A: Vitamin B-12 is the only B vitamin which is not produced by plants.
B-12 deficiencies have not been reported in horses, however, it is generally accepted that horses that are stressed, anemic, have severe parasitic conditions or are in generally poor health may benefit from supplementation.
Horses who ingest poor quality forages may also benefit. Symptoms of deficiency in other species include anemia, poor appetite, weight loss, irritability, poor growth, impaired reproductive performance, rough hair coat, hindquarter incoordination and unsteady gait.
Neurological problems have also been associated with B-12 deficiency.
Q: Vitamin B deficiency? Cracked sore in corner of mouth. Help!?
I have vitamin b deficiency right now. It is affecting the corner of my mouth right now. It is a red, cracked cut on my lip. I have had it for a couple weeks. It really hurts to eat because I can barely open my mouth. I have put aquaphor and lip stuff on it, but it doesn’t help. I have also been eating vitamin b stuff. It isn’t going away. I have a band aid on it because of the pain, but it isn’t really staying on too well. It really hurts. It isn’t a cold sore, because I haven’t kissed anyone in eight months. What should I do?
A: Try NUTRILITE Natural B Complex. Follow the link for more info:
Q: What are the symptoms of vitamin B deficiency in humans?
Please give me details of deficiency of Vitamin B in humans ………….I would Be thankfull to you
A: Vitamin B Complex:
The vitamin B complex consists of eight water soluble vitamins. The B vitamins work together to boost metabolism, enhance the immune system and nervous system, keep the skin and muscles healthy, encourage cell growth and division, and other benefits to your body.
B1, known as thiamine, serves as a catalyst in carbohydrate metabolism and helps synthesize nerve-regulating substances. Deficiency can cause beri-beri which is charaterized by heart swelling, leg cramps, and muscular weakness, oedema, high pulse rate. food sources high in thiamine include liver, heart, and kidney meats, eggs, leafy green vegetables, nuts, legumes, berries, wheat germs, and enriched cereals. The Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA) is 1.5 mg. Some believe thiamine helps protect against alcoholism and that it is good for depression, stress, and anxiety. It is also said to improve mental ability and to help indigestion.
B2, or riboflavin, helps metabolize fats, carbohydrates, and respiratory proteins. A deficiency can result in skin lesions esply lips become cracked, glossitis i.e. tongue becomes inflamed and pink, and light sensitivity. Riboflavins are abundant in mushrooms, milk, meat, liver, dark green vegetables, and enriched cereals, pasta, and bread. The RDA is 1.3 mg for adults. The vitamin is good for the skin, nails, eyes, mouths, lips, and tongue, and it is believed to help protect against cancer.
B3—also known as niacin, vitamin P, or vitamin PP—helps release energy from nutrients. It can reduce cholesterol and prevent and treat arteriosclerosis, among other benefits. Too little B3 can result in pellagra, a disease with symptoms that include sunburn, diarrhea, irritability, swollen tongue, and mental confusion, dermatitis, severe cases can lead to deagh also. Too much B3 can result in liver damage. Food sources rich in niacin are chicken, salmon, tuna, liver, nuts, dried peas, enriched cereals, and dried beans. The RDA is 14-18 mg per day for adults.
B5, or Pantothenic acid, has a role in the metabolism of fats, carbohydrates, and proteins. It is most abundant in eggs, whole grain cereals, legumes, and meat, although it is found in some quantity in nearly every food. The RDA is 10 mg. Deficiency can result in fatigue, allergies, nausea, and abdominal pain.
Vitamin B6, or pyridoxine, helps the body to absorb and metabolize amino acids, to use fats, and to form red blood cells. Deficiency in the vitamin may result in smooth tongue, skin disorders, dizziness, nausea, anemia, convulsions, and kidney stones. Whole grains, bread, liver, green beans, spinach, avocadoes, and bananas are rich food sources that are high in this vitamin. The RDA ranges from 1.3 to 2 mg depending on age and gender.
B7—also known as Biotin or vitamin H, helps form fatty acids and assists in the release of energy from carbohydrates. There have been no cases of deficiency among humans. The RDA is 30 µg.
Folic acid, sometimes goes by the name of vitamin M or vitamin B-c. Folic acid enables the body to form hemoglobin. It helps treat anemia and sprue. Good food sources include leafy green vegetables, nuts, whole grains, legumes, and organ meets. However, bear in mind that folic acid is lost when foods are stored at room temperature or cooked. Folic acid is particularly important in pregnancy. Consuming adequate folic acid before and during pregnancy helps prevent neural tube defects in newborns, including spina bifida. The RDA for both men and women is 400 micrograms, but women who are pregnant or planning to become pregnant should consume 600 micrograms a day. When breastfeeding, the recommendation is 500 micrograms. Deficiency can lead to megsloblastic anaemia.
Vitamin B12, also known as Cobalamin or Cyanocobalamin, assists the function of the nervous system and the formation of red blood cells. If the body is unable to absorb sufficient B12, pernicious anemia can result. B12 can only be found in animal sources such as eggs, milk, fish, meat, and liver. Therefore, vegetarians are strongly encouraged to supplement. The RDA for adult males and females is 2.4 µg.
Deficeiecy is rare.
Q: Can taking a Vitamin B-12 supplement hurt me if I don’t have a deficiency?
I was lacking energy so I thought I’d give it a try. Could it potentially hurt me if B-12 deficiency isn’t the problem?
A: For the lack of energy try:
B-complex, and Vitamin C with bioflavonoids.
Q: I have had 2 miscarriages! How can I find out if I have a vitamin b or progesterone deficiency or possible?
out of whack blood sugar level? Any ladies who have had miscarriages & than found out why & then went on to conceive? Thanks for those who have responded! Your experiences give me hope!
A: Hi-OK since this one has been sent to me personally-I will give as thorough an answer as I can: Yes progesterone plays a huge role in miscarriage….and in rare cases/a rare condition based on vitamin B deficiency can also cause problems. Let me further explain…1 out of every 5 pregnancies end in miscarriage due to a one time genetic defect in the fetus. It is not necessarily due to your egg being unhealthy or your partner’s sperm being unhealthy but ore than likely what occurs when the two are combined to form a fetus.
Addressing the progesterone problem: up until 8-9 weeks your body is producing the vital progesterone it takes to support a healthy pregnancy then it shifts to your placenta producing the progesterone. If at this point there is not enough progesterone being produced – your body will miscarry. Supplementation at this point will not help you to prevent the miscarriage
Progesterone deficiency (is primarily found in those that have 26-27 day cycles). If you are tested and found to have no progesterone deficiency (or a steadily dropping production rate) after the placenta has taken over-it is no guarantee but miscarriages are less likely to happen due to Progesterone Deficiency. But once the decline starts – miscarriage is inevitable and cannot be prevented. The majority of miscarriages that occur could not have been caused or prevented-due to all the factors that play in to normal development. It takes extensive testing to see a lot of things effecting pregnancies and then a lot of them happen simply because lack of health on the fetus.
In regards to Vitamin B deficiency’s is a very rare inherited blood disorder caused by the subunit B of Factor XIII-which deals with blood clotting issues and stabilization.
You can be tested for both deficiencies if you can health insurance that covers it or have the means to cover the costs.
If you discover that it is not either factor: I can recommend one website to you:www.Parents.com concerning articles on how to get in your best pre-pregnancy shape.
I also have my all-time favorite book choices (have given it as a gift countless times to my TTC friends). #1) is Beth Kileys, Personal Path To Pregnancy. I consider her to be almost a pro on the subject due to her years of exhausting research that she did in the face of her own fertility issues and the hundreds of testimonies I have read that women have now successfully gone on to have several children after following the means/methods of practice that she suggests (as well as Beth herself now having a couple of children). She talks about everything from preconception factors/influences, nutritional therapies for those TTC, What to do if low sperm count is an issue,alternative treatments to help you conceive faster, which vitamins enable the body to prepare for pregnancy, what to do if you have irregular periods, even a suggested beverage that helps the embryo implant in the uterus….etc. I love her advise because being in my mid 40’s now-I have had countless friend from their mid thirties forward have difficulty getting pregnant. All of them had the initial idea to run to a dr. and seek medical intervention in getting pregnant. I told them go have your baseline blood work done-get checked for abnormalities of any kind, BUT before they considered any expensive (and not guaranteed treatments)-first PLEASE read the book that I had given them. I am happy to say that only one of my girlfriends had to go the full route and seek medical intervention via invitro. Beth Kiley’s research runs very close in line to what I did on my own as a RN ( who btw – at the time faced fertility issues of my own and very much wanted a child). It didn’t happen for me but it became my passion to help anyone else that had a glimmer of hope to conceive…to have the child they so very much wanted.
Another viable nutritional suggestion is a book called Prescription for Nutritional Healing by Phyllis A. Balch, CNC. I also recommend it since it is in line with my thinking to try first naturally. It has a plethora of information concerning drug free remedies, vitamin/mineral usage,
-as well as herbs and food supplements that can be used when you have fertility (miscarriage) problems.
The secondary set of books that I recommend and also give as gifts all the time are for after conception: (SEE positive thinking here-think you will probably need these in awhile) What to Expect When You Are Expecting and What to Eat When You are Expecting. They are two books written by Arlene Eisenberg, Heidi E. Murkhoff and Sandee E. Hathaway, RN.
I hope this information has been of some help to you-best of luck in your pursuits and feel free to shoot me a question anytime.

Q: vitamin B deficiency?
ok so I have been suffering with anxiety and depression for the last two years due to a traumatic event, so i thought. i struggled with an eating disorder just before my anxiety took me over. just recently i have started taking vitamin B complex, and what a difference I feel. I feel like I can do anything. it’s amazing. but when I urinate I was told it would be a flouresent color and my boyfriends is bright but mine really hasnt changed. so basically my question is could I have been lacking vitamin B all along? and how long until I wont need the supplements?
A: Heck yes, you could! Vitamin B is water soluable so excess will end up in your urine, which is why your boyfriend’s is more yellow. If you keep taking it after yours turns darker, it won’t harm you. (Probably not a good idea to double the dose of course….but a normal dose won’t hurt even if you never stop taking it.)
Q: Vitamin B Deficiency+2 Miscarriages, could this be the one?
So, hello everyone. I am very knew to this whole yahoo ask thing. My husband and I have concieved 2 children since this time last year and lost both within 8 weeks of concieving. We went through testing (well I did) and found out that I tested positive with the M.T.H.F.R. test, therefore I have a B Vitamin Deficiancy. Have been taking 4 MG Folic, B12, Prenatal since January. Have NO problem getting pregnant and usually a test shows up pos before missed period. I FEEL pregnant. But I am wondering if my body and mind are playing tricks since I know what if feels like already……LMP May 9th 24-25 day cycle. Next Period is due June 2nd or 3rd. Tested Neg this morning with HPT….but still feel VERY pregnant. Know my body well…can even feel ov. What do ya’ll think?
Oh and this morning the test was a first response early pregnancy. I had only 6 hours of sleep and took the test around 5:15 am
So I woke up this morning with Spotting. Extremely light…Not due for my period til tomorrow or sunday…Dont know what to think.
A: Oh, I am so sorry about your miscarriages. Pregnancy really is such a delicate thing that most people don’t appreciate how wonderful it is to be able to carry a baby to term.
Unfortunately, pregnancy symptoms can be very similar to PMS symptoms, so it’s hard to know which is which sometimes. I’m sure your mind is playing tricks on you to some extent. I have not had great experience with testing for pregnancy before my period is due, so it could be that you were just testing too early. Even light spotting is not a deal-breaker because so many women spot early on in pregnancy. I wish I could tell you more than “wait and see”, but that’s probably the best advice.
If I can ask one thing, since your cycles are so short I wonder if you also have any problems with a short luteal phase. The time after ovulation until your next period starts should be at least 12-14 days long so that the new baby has time to implant in the uterus and start signalling the body that there is a pregnancy there and to not start a new period. Since you know pretty well when you are ovulating, if you are not able to get 12-14 days after ovulation until your next cycle you might look and see if your progesterone is low in that part of the cycle, it’s something easy to supplement if there is a problem. Your doctor probably looked into that, but I thought I’d throw that in there just in case.
Good luck & lots of “sticky” vibes to you for your next pregnancy!!!
Q: Vitamin B Deficiency?
i’ve been using the pill now for over 4 years. I take the pill to regulate my period not to… yeah.
Ever since I’ve been taking the pill I’ve had syptoms and they got worse over the years. My marks have gone down, I can’t focus in class, usually nervous for no reason. Tired alot. Can’t sleep well. Loss of awareness. This has been going on for a LONG TIME. and I just read an article in the newspaper that people on the pill should take Vitamin B supplements. Should I go to the doctor or just take supplements?
I have really bad memory too.
A: See your doctor and discuss your symptoms, and whether you would benefit from vitamin B supplementation. There is an anemia, called pernicious anemia, that occurs due to absence of a factor secreted in the stomach that is needed for the absorption of vitamin B12. Your doctor may want to investigate that. Oral vitamin B tablets are of no use in pernicious anemia, since the B12 can’t be absorbed, so it must be administered by injections.
Q: what dietary mineral if taken away can risk a vitamin b deficiency?
It’s for a crossword and it’s 9 letters long
A: not really sure, but try magnesium
Q: can vitamin b deficiency cause white spots on toungue?
A: i would say yes despite what everyone else here has said it would also cause a red inflamed tongue
i had them years ago so i began taking a 100mg b-complex and a multi vitamin
also these may help:
pale fissured tongue – iron deficiency
sore painful fissured tongue – vitamin B3 deficiency
sore burning tongue and lips and peeling of lips – vitamin B2 deficiency
swollen tongue with lateral teeth indentations – food intolerance
painful sore tongue with a smooth appearance – folic acid deficiency
cracked lips – vitamin B2 deficiency, thrush
Q: Vitamin B-12 Deficiency & Marijuana…please help!?
My friend has vitamin b-12 deficiency and wants to know the risks of smoking marijuana if there are any. Can this be a dangerous hobby given the b-12 illness? Thanks
yes habit* not hobby, thanks
A: How about neither a habit or a hobby. Casually smoking Marijuana will not impact the b12 deficiency. A b12 supplement can be taken. B12 is water soluble and heavy hydration is probably to blame.
Q: Which of the following explains why B vitamin deficiencies lead to lack of energy?
a.)B vitamins are a source of kilocalories
b.) Absorption of carbohydrates and fats is decreased
c.) Oxygen for energy metabolism cannot be transported to the cells
d.) Coenzymes needed for energy metabolism are produced in insufficient amounts
Is it D? Since symptoms of Vitamin B deficiences directly reflect the disturbances of metabolism incurred by a coenzumes
A: Answer d)
Vitamin B group vitamins are required as coenzymes for the cytochrome system (electron chain) stage of aerobic respiration when most of the ATP is produced.
