NUTRIENT DEFICIENCY DIETITIAN
A nutrient deficiency happens when we do not eat all the nutrients our body needs to function properly. There are many nutritional deficiencies—as many as there are nutrients! The most common are vitamins deficiency, iron deficiency, and deficiencies of trace elements such as magnesium or zinc.
Here are a few examples of common nutrient deficiencies:
Iron: Iron deficiency mainly affects women because of blood loss during the menstrual cycle. However, men may also be affected, especially if they are vegetarians, vegans, or very active. Anemia, which is caused by iron deficiency, can cause fatigue, muscle weakness, headaches, or hair loss. While men must eat 8 mg of iron a day, women must consume 18 mg a day to prevent deficiency. Iron can be found in meat and in lentils, beans, chickpeas, spirulina, soy, and spinach.
Vitamins A, B, C, D, and E: The best way to avoid a vitamin deficiency is to eat a variety of foods. Vitamins are found especially in fruits, vegetables, legumes, and fish, which give plenty of nutrients to your body.
