Not everyone knows that pills and vitamins, from which we expect only a positive effect, can greatly harm health. The main thing to understand is that in this case “more does not mean better,” warned the candidate of medical sciences, gastroenterologist, hepatologist Sergey Vyalov. A special cunning lies in the fact that the same spicy fatty meat, for example, people do not eat every day. But “health drugs” without consulting a specialist can be taken on a regular basis.
“It seems that it can be bad if you take vitamins and minerals. Nothing. But if you follow the doses,” said the doctor in the material “Double pancreatitis, please”, published on the Telegram channel.
The gastroenterologist urged not to take “drugs like that”, there must be reasons for taking any pill.
“For example, you can, having decided for no reason to take calcium to strengthen bones, eventually get an excess by taking a shock dose. Calcium can cause an exacerbation of chronic pancreatitis,” the doctor warned.
In addition, it is worth keeping in mind that “everyone’s favorite vitamin D with iron can cause an acute form of pancreatitis.”
“The daily requirement for vitamin D is only 400 IU, and many drink it at 10,000 IU. It is a mistake to think that by exceeding the norm, you can increase the benefits,” Vyalov concluded.
If you have health problems and before taking vitamins and medicines, be sure to consult your doctor.
