Vitamin C deficiency
Vitamin C deficiency, also known as scurvy, is a condition caused by inadequate intake of vitamin C, which is an essential nutrient required for various bodily functions. Symptoms of scurvy include fatigue, weakness, muscle and joint pain, as well as skin and gum problems. Severe cases can result in anemia, edema, and even death. Treatment involves restoring vitamin C levels through dietary changes and/or supplements.
