Avatar f tn No I take vitamin b6 for nausea too. But b12 I think helps for a healthier appetite. I'll have to ask.
Avatar f tn Vitamin B6 is found in a wide variety of foods, including: pork, poultry, such as chicken or turkey, fish, bread, wholegrain cereals, such as oatmeal, wheatgerm and brown rice, eggs, vegetable, soy beans, peanuts, milk, potatoes, some fortified breakfast cereals, etc. Not hard to find. But the issue here is usually supplementation, when someone is trying to treat some condition, such as mood problems. That's usually, absent a genetic problem, where people have the neuropathy problem.

6534481 tn?1398018501 Yes! 50mg vitamin B6 with half a 25mg tablet of unisom every night before bed. By the second night I had relief and took it religiously up until 3rd trimester.
Avatar f tn I feel that the vegan diet has helped me a lot with my emotions and health but im scared that its bad for me because im in my growing age? Is being vegan okay when ur a teen?
Avatar f tn When I got really ill last October I was pretty much taking my multi b (50mg b6) and multivitamin (25mg b6) every day up until I got my b6 result a couple of weeks ago. Reading up on B6 toxicity it certainly explain alot of my symptoms (especially the neuropathy, which I had nerve conduction test for about a month ago and came up normal!). My question is, is my level considered a b6 toxicity? Has anyone had similiar levels and recovered?
Avatar n tn Hi, Regarding vitamin B6, a water soluble vitamin is essential for the normal and optimal functioning of the body. The Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA) is the average daily dietary intake level that is sufficient to meet the nutrient requirements. RDAs for vitamin B6 (in milligrams), are: 1.3 mg for men and women under age 50; 1.7 mg for men and 1.5 mg for women over the age of 50, 1.9 mg for pregnant women, and 2 mg for women who are breastfeeding.
Avatar f tn I have already tried alternative therapy including acupuncture, vegan diets, hypnosis and vitamin therapy including high doses of ginger with no positive results. Of course, I am miserable but I am fearful that I will end up in the hospital as I have in the past due to dehydration because it is difficult to drink water or any other liquids. Thank you in advance for any positive and constructive suggestions.
Avatar f tn I have been reading the posts on Vitamin b6 toxicity. I started having the pins and needles 6 months ago. My neurologist did a B6 test and my B^ level was 1400. I take no vitamins with b6 in them only Calcium and B3. I checked to make sure there was no B6. Since then it has fluxuated with the lowest being 285. I had a blood test last week and it is back up to 1000. Do you have any ideas of what to do next. My neurologist suggested that maybe I should see a endrocronologist.
Avatar m tn You could avoid supplements that contain B6 and limit your intake of foods rich in vitamin B6, such as fortified cereal, bananas, salmon, turkey, chicken, potatoes, spinach and hazelnuts.
Avatar f tn I was wondering if anyone here knew anything about Vitamin B6 toxicity. I have discovered my blood level is high at 124.2 ng/mL (normal = 2.1 - 21.7 ng/mL). I am experiencing some strange symptoms like blurred vision, humming in my ears, difficulty swallowing and lack of coordination and numbness in my hands and feet. I know the numbness can be a symptom, but I am unsure about the other things. I also am unsure if it's possible to have a high blood level of B6 and not have toxicity.
Avatar m tn Vitamin B6 is found naturally in our foods, however, B6 supplements are the main reason for toxicity of vitamin B6. Long term (2+ years) supplementation of 500-5,000mg/day will result in medical issues, such as neuropathy which maybe reversible with discontinuing the supplement and lowering high B6 foods. The recommended daily dose is 1.3mg for men & women ages 19-50 and 1.7 for men >50 years old.
1185546 tn?1264310043 As a vegetarian you should be getting all your vitamins and minerals from the foods you ate except Vitamin B12 and maybe Calcium (if you have a history of bone disease in your family). Vitamin B12 supplementation you need to take because it comes from meat sources and it not available through vegetarian diet. Calcium supplementation may be needed if your intake is on the lower side depending on what you eat and your bone density.
1209948 tn?1266069659 It is recommended not to take any supplement of vitamin B6 and try not to eat large amounts of foods high in vitamin B6 at meals for 6 months. Vitamin B6 food sources are whole grains, legumes (beans), nuts, meats, and poultry and the sources with lowest amounts are: Peaches, Milk, Peas, Carrots, Ground Beef, Brown Rice, Soybeans, Avocado, Banana, and Turkey. It is a required vitamin and is needed in numerous necessary processes in our bodies. Eat with caution and small amounts.
Avatar m tn Thanks for your comment on Vitamin B6 toxicity. I'm wondering if a long term B6 blood level of 90 (with 2 - 21.1 being normal) could cause sensory neuropathy? Thank you.

Avatar f tn I tried giving him Health Aid Baby Vitamin (Vegan) drops to make up for the Vitamin B 12 he maybe lacking being on a Vegan diet. This Vitamin drop is free from soy, dairy, egg, gluten and nuts. However, his body didn't seem to tolerate this mixture- he got swollen lips and bumps on his forehead after taking the drops.
Avatar f tn My doctor suggested I take B6 and unisom to help with this. However, as stubborn as I am, I do not want to take any medications unless I absolutely have to. My friend tried this remedy and said it works. She stopped taking the b6 but still takes unisom to help her sleep, she it's now 30 weeks.
Avatar n tn The MTHFR gene is extremely common and can lead to a problem processing the B Vitamins, making people particularly susceptible to deficiency of B12, folic acid, and Vitamin B6. Ironically, in these cases, Vitamin B6 Levels and Vitamin B12 Levels will be HIGH, despite actually being a DEFICIENCY of these vitamins. This is because the vitamins build up in the bloodstream, where they are measured, but the vitamins can't get into the cells where they are needed.
