Hence, there is a vicious cycle between protein and riboflavin metabolism. Protein deficiency results in increased excretion of riboflavin and, in turn, riboflavin deficiency interferes with protein metabolism (Foy and Mbaya, 1977). , 1969). , 1956; Goldsmith, 1975). Some flavin-requiring enzymes are more sensitive to depletion than others and appear to parallel the reduction in levels of FMN and FAD. In erythrocytes riboflavin deficiency reduces both EGR and methemoglobin reductase (Beutler, 1969).

Immunology. Animal studies have shown that riboflavin deficiency is accompanied by a reduction in the levels of IgM and IgG and the number of antibody-forming cells of the spleen (Pruzansky and Axelrod, 1955; Kumar and Axelrod, 1978). , 1972; Feigin, 1977). It seems unlikely that a relatively brief febrile illness in a well-nourished adult will produce a long-term derangement in vitamin metabolism (Feigin, 1977) and require vitamin therapy. Chronic illness, however, is likely to deplete body stores of riboflavin.

However, in developed countries such as the United States, the difficulty of being able to purchase an adequate diet is much more of a problem than availability of food. Inadequate riboflavin consumption may also be the result of food habits, traditions, customs and religious beliefs which lead to the avoidance of riboflavin-rich foods.
