Food allergies vitamin deficiency
Everyone at my house has serious suffering leg cramps. Could that be a symptom of something?
like food allergies, vitamin deficiency, disease, or chemical exposure???
Try adding potassium to your diet. Foods like bananas and dried apricots have lots of potassium which might help.
Is there a certain kind of doctor I could go to for vitamin deficiency and sensory problems?
I have tingling and burning in the skin. It is really strong when I eat pineapple, but happens other times as well. Sometimes I don't have to eat at all. I am suffering from muscle weakness as well and blurry vision. I just don't know where to go to get help. My regular doctor thought I had a food allergy, but I'm worried it is more than that. How can I be for sure?
Thanks in advance.
I would see a Naturopath and describe your problems. My son, who's autistic, had several sensory issues and we starting seeing a DAN Naturopath and the majority of his issues are long gone!
Good luck :)
Vitamin B12 Deficiency Question?
I was recently advised by my GP that my oral swelling is a result of a vitamin B12 deficiency. My lips swell up to twice their normal size, are very red, and itch and burn like crazy! My only relief is to keep them slathered under a thick layer of Aquaphor at all times.
Are there any "quick fixes" to getting my B12 levels stabilized ASAP? I have a photo shoot next weekend, and if I can't get my clown lips under control, I'm going to have to cancel it. I'm already on a multivitamin (which I sometimes forget to take, hence this flare up), so I'm looking for easily digestible Vitamin B-12 rich foods I can include in my diet so my body can replenish the deficiency.
My main disadvantage here is food allergies: No nuts, no raw vegetables (excludes leafy veggies), no raw fruits (excludes citrus). Walnuts, Almonds, Carrots, and Apples result in reactions I can't control with OTC histamine blockers.
Eat lean red meat, venison, liver, shrimp, scallops, and salmon.
I think my cat has a vitamin deficiency?
My cat has been losing his hair for the last few months. He has no fur on his stomach and on top of his back, his fur is thinned out and he has a few bald patches. We took him to the vet countless times and pretty much ruled out allergies, cat litter, stress. I was doing some research about vitamin deficiency and found out biotin (or vitamin H?) can cause hair loss. So i was wondering if anyone knew any brands of cat food (dry or wet, whichever) that would help with this problem if it is from lack of biotin? Also, any other suggestions as to why my cat is balding? He'll be 4 years old in December. Thanks!
Go to the vet asap.
Do I have SAD? If so, what do I do?
For the past few years I have been feeling increasingly depressed and fatigued particularly during the winter. Until recently I never contributed these feelings to an actual mood disorder because I have gone through many health quirks (severe ulcers, birth control reactions, heart murmers, vitamin d deficiency, hemochromatosis, food allergies, recurrent UTIs, recurrent sinusitis, recurrent bronchitis, hypoglycemia, etc.) that make me fatigued and stressed/depressed because I get behind in school and work. But now most of my "quirks" are more under control and I still feel depressed and tired.
I have noticed that for years the navy colored walls in my room depress me and people complain that I turn on EVERY LIGHT wherever I am. (If I don't, I get tired and can't focus.) Last winter I got so fed up with being tired that I put 150 watts in every lightbulb and that seemed to make a little bit of a difference.
The problem is that I am a graphic design major so I rarely get to go outside. Do people usually see psychologists or physicians about Seasonal Affective Disorder? (I'm not sure if my insurance would cover a psychologist.)
First paint you room a different color, preferably a very light color like white..... then buy yourself a light box. They are specifically for SAD..... which has been connected to a lack of light in the winter. 150 watt bulbs may help but you are not getting the full spectrum that you need and you can get this from a light box. Therapy may or may not make a diffreence... if it is strictly a "light deficiency" then therapy wouldn't do any good...... If a light box (and new room color... a navy blue room sucks up all the light) doesn't work THEN go see a psychologist
College dorm food making me feel tired and sick?
I discovered I have a vitamin D deficiency which can cause fatigue and I'm now taking vitamins for that, but I think my dining hall food might be making me extremely fatigued and lethargic. I went home for break and felt great but once I had one meal at school in the cafeteria, I felt immediately like I had before I returned home to school - it's this heavy, sort of bloated, exhausted-type of feeling. I go to UC Berkeley and the menu (http://services.housing.berkeley.edu/FoodPro/dining/static/todaysentrees.asp) isn't that out of the ordinary... I can't figure out if it's a food allergy or what, or something else entirely!
My brother had the same problem.. You might need to eat more carbs.
My dog is getting leg cramps when he is resting, could it be a potassium deficiency?
My 3 yr old Akita mix gets cramps when he is resting occasionally. He will quickly stand up from a deep sleep with his hind leg stuck up in the air. I rub his leg till he can get it down but it still brakes my heart. We recently changed his food to eukanuba lamb and rice to help with his skin allergies. He has never had this problem before. He drinks plenty of water and gets exercise so the only thing I can think of is a vitamin deficiency. We have a appointment with the vet but they couldn't get us in till next week so I wondered if anyone eles has had this problem and has any advice to get us by till next week.
I would be more suspicious of an orthopedic problem like a luxating patella. Restrict your pets activity until the appointment. Fast your dog for 10 hours prior to the appointment in case radiographs under sedation are neccessary.
My dog is losing more fur...?
I took my dog to the vet last week because her fur's been thinning and she's been itching a lot and had a couple little red spots on her. I thought maybe it was mange, but they did the skin scraping and it wasn't. The vet figured it was just a food allergy and told me to switch her protein source and stick to a very limited diet to get her better and later add things to see what she's allergic to.
The fur is not coming out in patches, just thinning in general all over. My dog is half pit bull and has the fur of one, which is pretty short and her's has always been a little more thin. But it just keeps getting thinner. She is a mostly black dog and when she stands in the light I can see down to her skin almost anywhere. She's getting cold real fast when we take her on walks, but we have to take her out because she ABSOLUTELY needs to be able to play and run outside, or else after only a day of inside she will become very anxious, being a high energy dog.
My question is: Is it possible that there could be something wrong we're not considering? Maybe some vitamin deficiency that I could fix with a vitamin in her food? Or some other problem? She's only a little over a year old, and is a pretty happy, healthy and active dog, except for this.
Anybody have any tips?
they usually dont loose fur in the winter months but maybe youre not feeding the right food.
put a bit of olive oil on its food that may help
