Nutritional deficiencies occur when your nutrient intake is below the recommended requirement for optimal health and wellness. This means the body is not getting enough nutrients like essential vitamins and minerals.

A deficiency in vitamins and minerals can affect the body in a negative way. Physical signs related to nutrient deficiency can include: severe hair loss, bone pain, wounds that are slow to heal, skin repair takes longer, poor night vision, and irregular heartbeat.

Deficiencies in vitamins like B12 and C, along with low levels of iron and calcium are common. Find out more about what causes nutrient deficiency below.

An increasingly popular treatment at Este Medical Group for nutrient deficiency is IV Drip Therapy which can effectively increase your body’s intake of crucial nutrients such as vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and amino acids. The IV drip method is used to provide your body with an essential cocktail of nourishing supplements directly into your bloodstream, bypassing the digestive system, for maximum absorption.

What Causes: Nutrient Deficiency

Causes of nutrient deficiency include an imbalance of vitamins and minerals, for example inadequate intake of nutrient-rich foods, poor absorption in the body, and due to poor health or recovery from illness an increased need for nutrients that are not met.

A nutrient deficiency may be due to a lack of adequate:

  • Vitamin C
  • Vitamin D
  • Vitamin B12
  • Vitamin A
  • Magnesium
  • Iodine
  • Iron
  • Calcium

Some micronutrient deficiencies can cause serious health issues. For example, a lack of iron, folate, vitamins A and B12 can result in anaemia. With this condition you may experience uncomfortable and difficult side effects like shortness of breath and dizzy spells, severe fatigue and body weakness. One way to improve or prevent nutrient deficiency is to make IV Drip Therapy part of your regular self-care routine, alongside healthy eating and regular exercise.
