Vitamin deficiencies

Deficiencies of vitamins E and B1 (thiamin) can produce symptoms of cerebellar ataxia. Indeed a rare autosomal recessive ataxia with symptoms similar to Friedreich’s Ataxia may have low levels of vitamin E. Therefore, vitamin levels (especially vitamin E) should be measured in all ataxia patients. Treatment is directed to the specific deficiency.
