Besides people who avoid eating animal products (vegetarians, vegans) can also occur such problems with it even more often than in the general population in the – non-compliance with their diet and systematic errors in the diet.
How it manifests vitamin deficiencies of this group?
B vitamins are involved in metabolism in the skin and its appendages (hair, nails), as well as in metabolism and trophic nervous tissue. Therefore, the first signs of vitamin deficiencies of group B are fatigue, weakness, irritability, inability to tolerate previously achievable load (both physical and psycho-emotional, mental), mood swings (emotional lability). More specific are the complaints of heartquake and scarcity of breath that occur just under the previous exercise tolerance.
For vitamin B1 more signs of hypovitaminosis are cramps in the calf muscles, weakness, fatigue and pain when walking. To further develop the disease called beriberi – but this is not a topic for self-diagnosis, usually people get to a specialist sooner.
Specific lesions of the skin and mucous membranes when hypovitaminosis Group B
To those (especially in hypovitaminosis riboflavin) are angular stomatitis (cheilitis) – in the angles of the mouth, cracks-they are painful, dry quickly infected with concomitant inflammation. The same language loss – glossitis (tongue becomes smooth and red as if painted by papillary lesions of the system). The skin becomes dry, flaky, there are areas of redness develops the disease – seborrhea, due to the accumulation of sebum. Specific disease caused by a deficiency of riboflavin – pellagra – describes the maximum extent in all the pathological changes that arise in an outcome of deficiency or complete absence of not only vitamin B2, but the rest of the group of vitamins.
The defeat of the nutritive tract
In the form of gastritis, gastroenteritis, enterocolitis (and it all begins with the destruction of language – glossitis, as you may recall), accompanied by nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain – just a very common pathology in hypovitaminosis B vitamins, with it all of the above symptoms appear gradually, but more or less chronologically simultaneously, and disease, which started out as a weakness, dizziness, headache, and fatigue was like, the addition of skin and mucous already asserting itself.
