Vitamin and mineral replacement therapy is a common component of some of our metabolic medicine treatment plans. This therapy involves the administration of vitamins and minerals to address deficiencies that may be contributing to your metabolic dysfunction.
Vitamins and minerals are essential nutrients that the body needs to function properly. They play a critical role in many metabolic processes, including energy production, immune function and DNA synthesis. When the body is deficient in these nutrients, a host of health problems can result.
The therapy typically involves the administration of oral supplements, although in some cases intravenous administration may be necessary.
The specific vitamins and minerals used in replacement therapy will depend on your individual needs. For example, patients with diabetes may benefit from vitamin D supplementation, while those with some cardiovascular diseases may benefit from magnesium supplementation.
