I has no choice due to my immune system’s neromuscular disease, you can imagine this is a major concern to me. At this time, there has been no health problems being on this type of diet. What my specialist has me doing might interest you as well, by adding specific supplements my risks are dramatically decreased.
Consult your physician before adding any supplement to your diet, what you need to do is ask them to monitor your levels with regular blood work. That is what my specialist and my primary physician are doing for me, here are the ones to have your physician keep track of.
- B12 is often the most common supplement vegans are low in, so this is something to discuss with your doctor.
- Vitamin D
Vitamin D3, B12, Calcium, and Iron are what my blood work shows that I am deficient in. That does not mean everyone on a vegan diet will experience the same, you see my immune system is not absorbing enough nutrients from my food, which might not be happening to you.

Thank you very much, I do my best to help you with as much information and resources that I am able to find
You have discussed a very relevant topi…well done!
Thank you for sharing with my other readers and me, I am happy you enjoyed this article on the Vegan lifestyle
Hopefully this has helped some people understand more about the health benefits and risks with this lifestyle
Really interesting post. I went vegan a few years ago. I think the risks are not an issue as long as you do enough research and make sure your meals give you everything you need. And take supplements if you need to. I did a blood test a while back and everything was absolutely perfect even though I’ve been vegan for years and vegetarian my whole life before that. Making sure you get plant based versions of everything you need is the most important thing in my opinion.
I totally agree with you, thank you for sharing your experience going vegan
