Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

How many vitamins are too many for a human body? Why should I take vitamins daily, and what are the benefits to daily taking multi-vitamins? Kindly advice.

Answered by Dr. Albana Greca

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

The only problem is when you decide to take Vitamin D and calcium supplements, although in low dosage. This will alter the metabolism, and especially the kidney function leading to stones or precipitating kidney colic. I usually evaluate the foods and drinks what the patients consume, and whole blood levels of vitamins and minerals. Then decide to advise them to start vitamin supplements.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
