SOME VITAMINS DISEASE TRIGGERS
Cardiovascular surgeon Prof. Dr. Stating that attention should be paid to the use of vitamins and nutritional supplements, Melih Us told Hürriyet:
“Vitamin supplements or nutritional supplements are not referred to as medicine. That is why it is supervised by the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry, not the Ministry of Health. Most of these are uncontrolled products. Health problems may arise if some of these are taken too much.
Vitamin D, for example, is a measurable vitamin. If the person expends and uses it on his own, it becomes toxic. Unfortunately, vitamin D was recommended to everyone during the corona period. For this vitamin, its level in the body must first be checked. If our target is between 50-60, if it goes above 90, there is a state of toxicity. Especially diabetic patients should be careful. When he says ‘benefit’, it may be harmful.
DOCTOR ADVICE REQUIREMENT
Likewise, vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin. It comes out in urine very quickly. For this reason, if vitamin C is to be given, dose adjustment is necessary. Dosage adjustment should also be made according to the disease and indication. All these products must be consumed with doctor’s advice. The states about these products say, ‘I am a guarantor for the vitamins produced by the pharmaceutical industry. I will check it, but I do not vouch for those bought from vitamin shops. ‘ There are huge grocery stores that sell an incredible variety of vitamins. Unconscious consumption is a big problem. These definitely have certain benefits, as an alternative they should be added to the classical treatment, but they should definitely be under doctor’s control. In addition, they must be sold in a controlled manner. Under the counter production is also very high, especially from Slovenia. People should also look at where they are produced while buying them. ” (Liberty)
