Vitamin B1 Thimaine Deficiency

Are You Deficient in Vitamin B1 Thiamine?

In general, if your daily diet contains some of the following items, you're less likely to be deficient in Thiamine:

  • Beef Liver
  • Dairy Products
  • Wheat Germ
  • Fortified Cereals
  • Meat
  • Tuna

However, people who drink alcohol is an exception to this, because alcohol destroys Thiamins. Therefore, additional Thiamine supplements is highly recommended for these people. (Approx. 10-100 mg of Thiamine supplements are needed daily)

If you fall into the following categories, then you may be at risk of thiamine deficiency:

  • The Elderly (people over 55 years of age)
  • People who are sick or injured
  • Women who are pregnant or breastfeeding
  • People who have diabetes
  • Anyone under long term stress
  • People with liver disease
  • People who just had undergone surgery

Studies have indicated second hand smokers are likely to be deficient in all vitamins especially Vitamin C, Vitamin B, and Vitamin E. Therefore, if you have a smoker in the family, consider taking some extra vitamin supplements to avoid deficiency and keep healthy.

Vitamin B1 Thiamine Deficiency Symptoms

Beriberi is common in people who are severely deficient in Thiamine. This is characterized by neurological symptoms, cardiovascular abnormalities, and edema. People with this disease are characterized by multiple inflammatory changes in the nerves, producing great muscular debility (loss in strength in muscles), a painful rigidity of the limbs, and cachexy.

Other than getting the beriberi disease, Thiamine deficiency may cause pain or tingling in arms or legs, decreased reflex activity, heart enlargement and many other health problems.

Some minor Thiamine deficiency symptoms include:

  • Loss of appetite
  • Fatigue
  • Nausea
  • Mental problems, such as rolling of eyeballs, depression, memory loss, difficulty concentrating
  • Rapid heartbeat
  • Gastrointestinal disorders
  • Tender, atrophied muscles
  • Wernike's encephalopathy

Thiamine is a basic Vitamin B. It is water-soluble. It works closely with other B vitamins. You need Thiamine to convert food to energy and to keep your brain, nervous system and heart running well. An healthy adult should take between 1.1 to 1.2 mg of Thiamine every day which is not very much.
