B12 is a big one although Nutritional Yeast and some soy and fortified plant products may contain small amounts. Safer to supplement as B vitamins for consistent intake, I usually recommend 250 mcg/day. Calcium and iron are two other nutrients that may be low in a vegan diet, depending on choices. Adequate protein can be consumed through daily intake of legumes, beans, soy products, nuts and seeds.

Our goal is to provide an integrated alternative approach focused on the health and well being of our patients.

Be sure to take omega 3s, B12, and a protein that contains all essential amino acids, my need some additional support depending on the individual.
