Vitamin A deficiency prevention

everything about vitamins


Vitamin A and deficiency prevention

Vitamin A deficiency rarely occurs in the United States, but the World Health Organization (WHO) and the United Nations International Children's Emergency Fund (UNICEF) recommend vitamin A administration for all children diagnosed with measles in communities where vitamin A deficiency is a serious problem and where death from measles is greater than 1%. In 1994, the American Academy of Pediatrics recommended vitamin A supplementation for two subgroups of children likely to be at high risk for subclinical vitamin A deficiency: children 6 to 24 months of age hospitalized with measles and hospitalized children older than 6 months.

Fat malabsorption can result in diarrhea and prevent normal absorption of vitamin A. Over time this may result in vitamin A deficiency. Those conditions include:
  • Celiac disease:
    Often referred to as sprue, celiac disease is a genetic disorder. People with celiac disease are intolerant to a protein called gluten found in wheat and some other grains. In celiac disease, gluten can trigger damage to the small intestine, where most nutrient absorption occurs. Approximately 30% to 60% of people with celiac disease have gastrointestinal-motility disorders such as diarrhea.They need to follow a gluten-free diet to avoid malabsorption and other symptoms.
  • Crohn's disease:
    This inflammatory bowel disease affects the small intestine. People with Crohn's disease often experience diarrhea, fat malabsorption, and malnutrition.
  • Pancreatic disorders:
    These often result in fat malabsorption, since the pancreas secretes enzymes important for fat absorption. Without these enzymes, it is difficult to absorb fat. Many people with pancreatic disease take pancreatic enzymes in pill form to prevent fat malabsorption and diarrhea.
Healthy adults usually have a reserve of vitamin A stored in their livers and should not be at risk of deficiency during periods of temporary or short-term fat malabsorption. Long-term problems absorbing fat, however, may result in deficiency. In these instances physicians may recommend supplemental vitamin A.

Vegetarians who do not consume eggs and dairy foods need provitamin A carotenoids to meet their need for vitamin A. They should include a minimum of five servings of fruits and vegetables in their daily diet and regularly choose dark green leafy vegetables and orange and yellow fruits to consume recommended amounts of vitamin A.

I have decided to start an active promotion of this website, so that we get more visitors soon. And it would be a waste of time if we didn't allow for discussion and sharing of informations. In light of that, discussion forum will be officially launched on June 21st.
