Can I take vitamin E regularly?
Q: I am 35 years old and suffering from a thyroxine disorder. I am on Thyronorm (150) and Evion 400 (1 every night). My height is 5 feet 8 inches and weight 87 kg. Please guide whether daily consumption of Evion 400 has any side effects or not?
A:Evion is a fat-soluble vitamin E and this vitamin is retained in the body for longer time. No one exactly knows what are the side effects of excess of vitamin E but excess is certainly, neither required nor desirable. It should be used on advice of a physician only. Certainly this is not the cause of your overweight. Regular exercises and dietary adjustments can help you. Do check status of your Thyroid control first.
