If you're currently taking a multivitamin, you may want to reconsider it after reading this article.  At the very least, consider switching to one of the supplements which passed testing.

I've been debating taking a multi-vitamin. My endocrinologist says I should take one, my vitamin D level was down to 8.3 which is very low. I am on perscription vitamin D right now. With the crohn's disease and IBS most vitamins upset my guts. Thanks for the article.

I have found that taking a multi vitamin only made things worse for me.  So with a little investigating it seems vitamn A C E and magnesium in them can only add to the stomach upset and diarrhea.

I took a vitamin C supplement one day because I felt myself coming down with a cold, only to develop really bad diarrhea. My husband says I was crazy to think the vitamin C did that to me becuase it never does it to him, but after talking to people on here, I found that it does affect some people--especially people with sensitive guts--negatively.

I do know people who have iron guts and after taking a vitamin pill for a while they too can have episodes of diarrhea and if they stop the vitamin it takes a few days to get rid of it.
