Unfortunately, the medical professionj is not big on nutrition and usually say if we eat we aren't deficient.
However, if one eats a lot of refined and processed food, the B vitamins are sorely lacking, because they are destroyed by heat, and are in the brown germ part of the grains. Most products are made with white refined flour!
Pizza dough, french bread, bagels, loaf bread, cake, donuts, etc.
Also, it used to be we ate locally grown food, but now have no idea where in the world the food comes from or how mineral/vitamin rich the foods are. If you are not eating lots of unrefined grains, fruit and vegetables every day, likely you are nutritionally deficient.
Anyway, let us know if it makes any difference for you. Taking B vitamins and zinc makes all the difference for me.
