Do I need to take vitamin A supplements?

Vitamin A is also present in most multivitamin-mineral supplements. However, if you're receiving enough

of what you need from meals, you usually don't need to take supplements. A balanced diet will 

provide you with all the vitamin A you need, unless you have a restricted diet or a medical condition

that increases your need for vitamin A. You don't want to take the chance of taking too much

vitamin A, too. Consult a healthcare professional about your options if you think you might be deficient

in vitamin A. Treatment can be guided by a blood test and confirmed by your symptoms.
