Hydrochloric acid and IF are important to absorb vitamin B12. However, the patient who has atrophic gastritis cannot absorb vitamin B12, which is leading to vitamin B12 deficiency. The third cause is vitamin B9 deficiency (folic acid deficiency). Folic acid is important to the formation erythrocytes and reparation the damaging cells, so folic acid deficiency caused decreasing the number of healthy erythrocytes, which causes pernicious anemia.

Vitamin D can be taken orally as a dietary supplement or, it can be synthesized by the skin by the exposure to the sunlight, and very few foods may contain this vitamin. It is essential for bones health, and the body some time convert this vitamin into hormone called activated vitamin D or calcitriol. Vitamin D help the body to absorb calcium and other minerals although you eat a lot of food that contains lots of calcium, you still need vitamin D to absorb this mineral. Also, vitamin D helps in immune system fighting foreign bodies, function of muscles, cardiovascular health, respiratory system health, brain development, and anticancer effects.

However this test has a low sensitivity where some individuals with low result would be considered to be deficient but show no clinical evidence of deficiency and conversely symptoms of deficiency can be seem when the result does not fall into the low range. There is a large ‘grey zone’ or ‘indeterminate range’ between normal and abnormal levels. In order to detect vitamin B12 deficiency, a more sensitive and specific screening test is required. Haptocorrin (HC) and transcobalamin (TC) are transport proteins for vitamin B12 . Transport of vitamin B12 to the tissues is brought about by TC.
Clearly , the Sun isn’t dangerous , overexposure to it is. The same thing applies to Vitamin D pills, till now no one knows what amount is safe and an overdose would lead to HyperCalcemia , which produces Kidney stones, meddles with your heart and brain, and damages your bones.

They require large amounts of calcium to normalize their pH balance. On the other end of the spectrum, the carbohydrate types tend to be slow oxidizers driven by their sympathetic nervous systems. When the carbohydrate types take calcium, their pH balance often gets worse, which is one reason calcium doesn’t reduce bone loss in everyone. This isn’t a fine detail of little importance. Some cancer patients advised to take coral calcium, do not thrive.
Vitamin B12 and K2 are two essential vitamins. Vitamin B12 is an essential vitamin that aids in the protection of the nervous system. A study done by Alex Hershaft established that vitamin B12 is found in animal products (excluding honey) and that unfortified plant sources such as seaweeds and vegetables are a great source of vitamin B12. Alex Hershaft concluded that the vegan diet often doesn’t meet the daily vitamin B12 requirement. However Alex Hershaft also concluded that if a vegan did take a supplement that contained vitamin B12 (5.6 mcg/day) then one would have sufficient amount of B12 in one’s diet.
Vitamin D largely comes from the exposure of sunlight to the skin, but it is also found in some foods such as oily fish, tofu, dairy products, certain mushrooms and eggs. Vitamin D is essential for a child to form strong and healthy bones. The patient possibly did not go out to the sun enough, or consumed too little vitamin D. Vitamin D deficiency arises from a mismatch between populations of previous evolutionary environment and the individual’s current environment. For example, the environmental mismatch when dark-skinned people live at high latitudes. Furthermore, Asian immigrants living in Europe have an increased risk for Vitamin D deficiency.
