The neurologist with whom kaylasmom and I have been consulting about her apparent dementia symptoms ordered blood tests which revealed her to have deficiencies in some vitamins and hormones, including vitamin B1 (aka thiamine). In response to these, he recommended supplements (100mg, QD in the case of the B1).
kaylasmom is currently taking the supplements, but a couple of days ago, she began refusing to take the thiamine pills, saying that they turn her stomach. I do not doubt this, as when I open the bottle with the tablets, I can SMELL an odor that knocks me back on my heels.
Does ANY supplement manufacturer offer this vitamin in a form that doesn’t smell and taste so awful?
