Thanks for mentioning that you should discuss your nutrient intake and goals with a doctor ahead of time and to see if your medication will affect nutrient absorption. I am thinking about tracking my nutrients but worry that my medication will get in the way of my goal. I will speak with a doctor to see if my medication will interfere with my nutritional routine so that I can be prepared.

Hi Stefan, 

I would continue to track nutrient intake, as it is good information to have regardless of any interaction with meds. If any meds are identified as being one that impedes the absorption of a specific nutrient, you will likely be asked to have more of that nutrient to make up for it.

Great article. Notice that default cronometer target for vitamin A is not suitable for vegans. 3000 IU is for the preformed vitamin. Vegans should look at Retinol Activity Equivalent or use a vegan app like vegnt.com to track vitamin A.

Hi Helen, yes, RDA's should be adjusted as mentioned in the article, but the amount will vary from person to person so I do suggest speaking with a registered dietician if there are any doubts about what to set it to.
