Hypervitaminosis A, or vitamin A toxicity, occurs when you have too much vitamin A in your body. Gold-standard liver biopsy studies have shown that Vitamin A toxicity may be happening in more than 1 out of 3 people!
It may also be caused by long-term use of certain acne treatments that contain high doses of vitamin A, such as isotretinoin (Sotret, Absorica).
Acute vitamin A toxicity is usually the result of accidental ingestion when it occurs in children.
Regularly eating foods containing even moderate amounts of Vitamin A (including carotenoids) can lead to Vitamin A toxicity over the years.
Symptoms include changes in vision, bone pain, and skin changes. Chronic toxicity leads to liver damage and increased pressure on your brain.
