Abstract

Aim: To create awareness about Vitamin A deficiency among middle aged men.

Objective: The objective of this study is to find the etiology, diet, symptoms and factors affecting Vitamin A deficiency among middle aged men.

Background: Vitamin A is an unsaturated organic compound. It is present as retinoids in animals and betacarotene in plants. This vitamin is responsible for maintaining good vision, immunity and helps in development but the deficiency of vitamin A is the key cause of night blindness and other vision disorders. Vitamin A deficiency is due to the lack of information among the people about nutritional eating, since diet is the major cause of this deficiency. Along with diet, many infections are present in developing countries which drain the vitamin A reserve leading to a deficit making the individual more susceptible to infections. So awareness is the key to prevention. Vitamin A deficiency is common in developing countries, and is said to cause blindness to cause in over 500,000 children year.

Reason: To create awareness among men so that they could influence their families to become healthier and prevent the newer generations to become affected by this disease.
