Pharmaceuticals - Nutritional Risk Factors


What you should know about...

In this day and age where dietary supplements are increasing with popularity there are studies being conducted on the interaction and/or increase risk aspect for nutritional induced factors - in other words ‘pharmaceutically- induced nutritional deficiencies.’ The lack of knowledge on this subject in the medical world and the pharmaceutical-using individuals, can easily lead to an increased risk for interaction or nutritional deficiencies.

Pharmaceuticals can provide important benefits to patients with medical problems but consumers/patients should know and understand the possible risk and/or potential depletion of nutrients associated with their use.
