Deficiency and Excess of vitamins and minerals

Mark Howard, Manager
Biolab Medical Unit
The STone House
9 Wymouth Street
London W1W 6DB, UK

Excerpts from the interview with Mark Howard
February 2009

Are there vitamins or minerals you find are often surprisingly deficient in general ?

MH: It never ceases to amaze all of us at Biolab just how frequently we find micronutrient deficiencies, and the situation is deteriorating rather than improving. B12, folate, zinc, magnesium, selenium and B1, B2 and B6 deficiencies are regularly identified, essential fatty acid deficiencies and abnormal omega-3:omega-6 ratios are also very frequently observed. Vitamin D is definitely a problem, particularly, but not exclusively, at this time of the year. Of course the majority of patients being tested at Biolab are already unwell and are suspected of having sub-optimal micronutrient status, hence the referral.

We are also seeing an increasing number of raised levels of minerals and vitamins as a result of inappropriate supplementation and this is a growing area of concern. Nutrients in excess can be just as harmful as deficiencies.

Vitamin deficiencies

Minerals the body needs

How much vitamins do I need?

Unfounded health claims.
When vitamin supply is adequate your body automatically regulates circulating vitamin levels. Excess water-soluble vitamins are excreted in urine. Surplus fat-soluble vitamins are stored in body tissue. Because they're stored, excess fat-soluble vitamins can accumulate in your body and become toxic. Your body is especially sensitive to too much vitamin A and vitamin D...
