Migraines are linked to vitamin deficiency

Migraines are linked to vitamin deficiency, according to the latest research from Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center.

Migraines cause intense throbbing and pain in the head, and are usually followed with nausea, vomiting, and extreme sensitivity to light.

According to the new research, a high percentage of children, teens, and young adults that suffer migraines have deficiencies in vitamin D, riboflavin, and coenzyme Q10.

Further studies are needed to elucidate whether vitamin supplementation is effective in migraine patients in general, and whether patients with mild deficiency are more likely to benefit from supplementation,” says Suzanne Hagler, MD, a Headache Medicine fellow in the division of Neurology at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center and lead author of the study.

Dr. Hagler and colleagues studied patients at the Cincinnati Children’s Headache Center.

The press release explained the following about the study methods and details:

Dr. Hagler’s study drew from a database that included patients with migraines who, according to Headache Center practice, had baseline blood levels checked for vitamin D, riboflavin, coenzyme Q10 and folate, all of which were implicated in migraines, to some degree, by previous and sometimes conflicting studies. Many were put on preventive migraine medications and received vitamin supplementation, if levels were low. Because few received vitamins alone, the researchers were unable to determine vitamin effectiveness in preventing migraines.
The study showing that migraines are linked to vitamin deficiency was presented at the 58th Annual Scientific Meeting of the American Headache Society in San Diego.
