Vitamins are broadly classified as: - Fat-soluble (Vitamin A, D, E, and K) and Water-soluble (Vitamin C and B complex).
The following are some of the vitamin deficiency diseases:
► Anemia (deficiency of folic acid and vitamin B12)
► Nerve and brain damage (deficiency of thiamin and vitamin B12)
► Easy and excessive bleeding (deficiency of vitamin K)
► Impaired night vision and blindness (deficiency of vitamin A)
► Bone diseases (deficiency of vitamin D or calcium)
► Scurvy (deficiency of vitamin C)
These vitamin deficiency diseases are rare in the western societies, and occur mainly in the Third World where people have very poor diet.
