5 True/False questions
Vitamin D (storage) → stored in fat or goes back to liver. Liver can make it inactive and it can circulate in blood stream for weeks. Small amount excreted in urine and bile.
Vitamin E (function) → (clotting and bones) need in synthesis of blood clotting factors. synthesis of protein that bind calcium
Vitamin D (kidney function) → with regulation from parathyriod hormone makes active form of calcitriol (hormone) induces vitamin D function.
Vitamin K (function) → antioxidant- stops damage done by free radicals (because it donates an electron to the free radicals), reduces oxidative stress
Hemmorrhagic diesase → vitamin E deficiency. Red blood cells are broken down faster than they can be replaced.
