How is scurvy treated?

Scurvy is treated by increasing the amount of vitamin C in your diet. This can be in the form of fruits, particularly citrus fruits such as oranges, lemons and limes. Vegetables including spinach, cabbage, capsicum and broccoli are also high in vitamin C. To aid the treatment process, your doctor may suggest that you take vitamin C supplement tablets for a short period.
