This session will describe the pathophysiology of vitamins and their role in disease prevention. We will use a case-based approach to discuss vitamin deficiencies and appropriate replacement options. We will also discuss the dangers of using megadoses of vitamins and vitamin-drug interactions. We will discuss, if with adequate nutrition, it is necessary to replace vitamins, and if so which ones.
