Posts tagged "Wernicke's encephalopathy"

Did your doctor fail to diagnose your Vitamin B1 deficiency?

In modern, industrialized nations like the United States, the possibility that a vitamin deficiency can cause serious health consequences seems foreign. In fact, the possibility that a vitamin deficiency is the cause of an ailment sometimes doesn't even occur to trained doctors.

Am I at risk for Wernicke's encephalopathy?

Wernicke's encephalopathy is a long and complicated name for a brain disorder caused by something as simple as a vitamin deficiency. However, while the cause may be simple, the effects are anything but. The scariest part is that if a doctor does not diagnose and treat the condition early enough, some of the devastating symptoms may be permanent or even fatal.

Failure to Diagnose Nutritional Deficiency Can Lead to Wernicke's Encephalopathy

In developed countries like the United States, the general assumption is that malnutrition is a relatively rare health problem.

What are the symptoms of Wernicke's encephalopathy?

Vitamins are an essential necessity for our bodies to function properly. Your body needs one vitamin in particular, Vitamin B1, to avoid devastating consequences to your health. While this vitamin turns your food into energy for your body to use, it also helps your immune system, especially through stressful times. But a lack of Vitamin B1, also known as thiamine, can cause Wernicke's encephalopathy, which is a brain disease that can become fatal.
