Doctor :   Thank you for writing to us. It is okay to take supplements but you should try to get your dietary needs from fresh f ood instead. In your case, I recommend that you add in 2 cooked eggs into your diet. These will help you greatly to fulfill the dietary vitamin needs. Also, the vegatables you can eat should be eaten at least 2 times a day and in a reasonable large amount. This way, you will most certainly get all the needs of the body. If you get skin chafing or lip cuts, please see a Doctor to confirm if it is a vitamin deficiency. Hope this helps you. All the best.
