Glandular Fever is caused from Epstein Bar viral infection and not from low vitamin A. The problems in our bodies that occur with deficiency of Vitamin A are night blindness, Bitot’s spots (blindness) and decreased immune function. Suggest you go to your MD and get blood work done to see your body’s status. If there are issues, as you stated, you can be treated.
I live in the UK, and unfortunately my GP said there is no blood test he can do. So I don't know what to do.
I know Glandular fever is caused by that, but Im thinking if low vitamin A reduces immune function then perhaps that is why I couldnt fight it off.
My other symptoms are very little sense of smell, night blindness, dry eyes, and i seem to have a bit of candida too, which Im thinking could be due to low immune function. I think these are all symptoms of having low vitamin A.
What can I do about it if I can't get a blood tests done?
Sorry just remembered something else.
I havehad a blood test for zinc which showedI was slightly low. Does low zinc in any way affect vitamin A?
What dose of zinc should I take to correct the low zinc?
Low Vitamin A does not affect the immune system unless you have Bitot's spots which it seems like you do not have as you stated. If you are concerned, suggest you take a regular multivitamin and eat balanced healthy meals daily to get the needed nutrients, vitamins and minerals.
