Colchicina

Vitamina B12 - Complementación que Posiblemente sea Útil

Aunque primeramente fue usada como una base a corto plazo para tratar los ataques de gota, la colchicina está siendo prescrita para periodos más largos como un preventivo para la gota. Esta práctica puede aumentar la oportunidad de desarrollar la deficiencia nutricional comentada aquí.

Complementación que Probablemente sea Útil

La colchicina puede dañar la absorción intestinal de la vitamina B 12, así que tomar un suplemento de vitamina B 12 durante la extensión de la terapia de colchicina puede ser garantizado.1
