Re: How do I know if I am vitamin deficient?

Vitamin deficencies are diagnosed through blood tests, less often through physical signs, like in scurvy (vit C def) or rickets (vit D def).

Since vitamin and mineral deficencies often overlap, their symptoms do as well, they can be difficult to self-diagnose.

Re: How do I know if I am vitamin deficient?

You can definately have body symptoms. That is what sent me to the doctor. I was tired, had acid reflux going on, IBS, shaky, fullness in my head, ringing in ears. Turns out I was REALLY low on vitamin D. I am glad I am proactive about my health and got presciptions vitamins. They do that through blood work. Just have them run some tests.
