Since their discovery more than a century ago to this day, vitamins went from misunderstood molecules with mysterious properties to fundamental components with undoubted clinical implications. Despite the scientific progresses in the understanding of their physiopathological role, vitamins raise to this day multiple interrogations in clinical practice. This article aims at answering questions that are frequently encountered in the outpatient setting regarding vitamin deficiencies: who to screen ? At what moment ? By which test ? How to interpret the results ? How to supplement ? By answering these questions, we hope to provide the general practitioners with a pragmatic tool to guide them in the management of issues related to vitamins.
