May be you got a suntan?
I would also recommend a blood test to rule out other issues such as liver problems.
Yea, if you are not taking supplements, getting vitamin A overdose is almost impossible. There may be the occasional person who eats too many carrots, but even then, outside of some color, side effects are rare.
The vitamin A in raw foods is actually pro-vitamin and the most common type of pro-vitamin A is beta-carotene.
I second everything PK said.
Did the dr give you a blood test? Or do you wanna save your money (a benefit of eating healthy).
Yeah, I'd listen to the trolls on this one: Vitamin A from plants is VERY hard for the body to utilize. Ya need MEAT to get proper Vitamin A.
as far as i know you can only have a vitamin a overdose by actually consuming vitamin a, not a single plant-food contains that.. you can't overdose on beta carotene.
Yep, agree with this. It's the synthetic vitamin A that is toxic.
Teehee :) I wouldn't worry :) My ma has orange hands and feet and an orange glow to her whole skin from eating papaya, persimmon and sweet potatoes daily. She looks like she fake tans but of course she doesn't. She calls herself an oompa-loompa. She is healthy and never gets sick :D
As long as they're ripe you can eat as much as you want.. it's hard to find fully ripe oranges these days though.
I get tree-fallen oranges from a U-pick farm in winter. Then I'd eat 7 a day & don't have any signs of problems.
