"What is known about medication derived nutritional deficiencies?"
What's known about nutritional deficiencies, as a result of medications, is usually well documented before the medication is released for use. Many such as a number of blood thinners, are known to cause a deficiency in vitamin K. Others such as proton pump inhibitors, are known for blocking the absorption of the vitamin B complex group. Each is as I said well known, and documented, mainly as that's a required part of the process from testing. What;'s known as NSAIDs, are known to block vitamin C. For vitamin D it's things such as, statins, and diuretics, then others can include include anticonvulsants and corticosteroids. Basically all nutrients can be, or are affected by many medications. You can easily look up any given medication, and should be able to find out what medications can cause which nutritional deficiencies.
