It turns out, the doctor that examines you has a special interest in nutrition. He notices some inconsistencies with what you discuss with him and suggests that you may have a deficiency or toxicity of your selected vitamin. Your post should include the following information:
Based upon the vitamin that you have chosen, what were your doctor’s observations and diagnosis? Do you have a toxicity or deficiency? Explain any disorders associated with the deficiency or toxicity. Briefly describe what your recommended daily allowance based upon your profile (sex, age, physical status, etc.) should be, your present intake estimate, and your action plan (adjustment in diet, etc.).
