Health Risks from Excessive Vitamin A

info from the National Institutes of Health

Because vitamin A is fat soluble, the body stores excess amounts, primarily in the liver, and these levels can accumulate. Although excess preformed vitamin A can have significant toxicity (known as hypervitaminosis A), large amounts of beta-carotene and other provitamin A carotenoids are not associated with major adverse effects. The manifestations of hypervitaminosis A depend on the size and rapidity of the excess intake.

The symptoms of hypervitaminosis A following sudden, massive intakes of vitamin A, as with Arctic explorers who ate polar bear liver, are acute. Chronic intakes of excess vitamin A lead to increased intracranial pressure (pseudotumor cerebri), dizziness, nausea, headaches, skin irritation, pain in joints and bones, coma, and even death.

Although hypervitaminosis A can be due to excessive dietary intakes, the condition is usually a result of consuming too much preformed vitamin A from supplements or therapeutic retinoids. When people consume too much vitamin A, their tissue levels take a long time to fall after they discontinue their intake, and the resulting liver damage is not always reversible.

Hypervitaminosis A

Hypervitaminosis A is having too much vitamin A in the body.
There are two types of vitamin A hypervitaminosis: acute (caused by taking too much vitamin A over a short period of time), and chronic (occurs when too much of the vitamin is present over a longer period).

Complications of vitamin A toxicity include: excessive calcium levels, kidney damage due to high calcium, liver damage. In infants, the children may fail to thrive.
