Vitamin C Deficiency (Scurvy) Symptoms (ex. bad teeth, fatigue), Why symptoms happen & who gets them


Lesson on the signs and symptoms of vitamin C deficiency (ascorbic acid) (scurvy), the pathophysiology of vitamin C deficiency, why symptoms occur, who has these symptoms, and a detailed description of the condition known as scurvy. Vitamin C is an essential vitamin that is required for several metabolic pathways, including the synthesis of collagen and the synthesis of catecholamine, among others. In the case of a reduced dietary intake of vitamin C, the scurvy condition can lead to symptoms involving the teeth, skin, hair and can even cause depression, fatigue and weakness. The diagnosis includes laboratory investigations and the treatment depends on whether the patient is a child or an adult.
