Is this true? I've never heard of this being a symptom of Lyme. so I was just wondering? And what causes lack of iron? I take a special vit. for lyme disese.
It's called L.D. Complete....The Nutritional Support System For People With Lyme Disease.
When I went off the abx I was fine. I know I was told at the time what vitamin K was but i forget - i do know it was protein related or iron related.
Sorry I'm not much help.
but I started having minor seizures and major icthing spells so she took me off and I am waiting to go back and see her.
I'm not real formiliar with vit.K. What is it's benefits?......Jamie
You can get vitamin K deficiency from broad spectrum antibiotics that kill off normal gut bacteria, which manufacture vitamin K in your intestines. You can also become deficient in vitamin K from malabsorption in the gut, or from malnutrition, especially the lack of green leafy vegetables.
I don't know if you're a woman, but women in general are more iron deficient from menstruation, and anything that increases the body's need for iron like increased metabolic needs during stress, or a chronic infection can push you over the edge into more severe deficiency where you may need supplementation.
Time to ask your doctor to check you out, I think!
