B1 (thiamine) deficiency can cause lactic acidosis, thus making one smell fruity and attractive to the pesky mosquito. Yes, I am referring to the same lactic acid that builds up with over training and thiamine is beneficial there too. I have had many patients who had previously been attacked, get passed over by mosquito’s after adding a good B1 to their diet. A few other possible symptoms of B1 deficiency are spotting or frequent menses, emotional instability, fatigue, headaches, hypoglycemia, or slow metabolism.
