Biotin deficiency mnemonic


Here's an interesting case of vitamin deficiency you should read.

Biotin deficiency is rare. Nice to know for exams though. Soooo.. I made a mnemonic. Biotin reminds me of the comic character, Tin Tin!

Biotin mnemonic
Symptoms of deficient biotin intake are:

Dry skin
Rashes, including erythematous periorofacial macular rash

Seborrheic dermatitis
Fungal infections

Fine and brittle hair
Hair loss or total alopecia

Mild depression, which may progress to profound lassitude and, eventually, to somnolence
Changes in mental status

Generalized muscular pains (myalgias)
Hyperesthesias and paresthesias

Nausea, occasionally severe

That's all!
