In this video, we’re going to talk about a common question I get from my viewers: can vitamin deficiencies cause serious disease?

You may not connect serious diseases with a nutrient deficiency. However, nutrient deficiencies may actually be at the root of many of the most common diseases today.

Many diseases are caused by classical deficiencies, including:
• Scurvy (low vitamin C)
• Rickets (low vitamin D)
• Beri Beri (low vitamin B1)
• Osteomalacia (low vitamin D)
• Pellagra (low vitamin A)
• Night blindness (low vitamin A)
• Heart attack (low vitamin E)

You also have subclinical deficiencies, which may not be obvious at first. They often cause long-term issues if left unnoticed.

Subclinical nutrient deficiencies are especially bad for infants and mothers who are breastfeeding. A child needs the right amount of nutrients for healthy development. Zinc, vitamin D, folate, and iodine are very important for child development.

Here are some signs of subclinical nutrient deficiencies:

Vitamin C: fatigue, bleeding gums, damaged connective tissue

Vitamin D: Bowed legs, muscle weakness, pain in legs, weak lower back

Vitamin B1: Dementia, neuropathy, brain atrophy

Vitamin B3: Diarrhea, dermatitis, dementia, early death

All of these vitamins are co-factors—they are helper compounds that ensure the proper function of a healthy body. Without them, your health can suffer greatly.

Many nutrient deficiencies occur when you consume refined foods. Consuming refined carbohydrates can lead to insulin resistance. Insulin resistance lowers your ability to absorb nutrients. In turn, low absorption can cause nutrient deficiencies, even if you’re consuming plenty of vitamins and minerals.

In summary, it’s important to avoid refined carbohydrates and address insulin resistance, so you don’t develop nutrient deficiencies.
