COULD YOU BE VIT B12 DEFICIENT?

Postby Dovechick » Mon Aug 19, 2013 10:06 pm

As many as 20% of us could be vitamin b 12 deficient possibly as many as 40% of the over 50s, but the problem is how to find out and what to do about it. This video explains the problems very clearly, lists the large variety of symptom from alopecia, though anaemia, digestion and neurological to vision virtigo and weight problems. Some of these can be severe but the problem is diagnosing the deficiency and getting the right treatment.

Part of the problem is lack of awareness both from those who might be affected and from those who might treat it. Please sign this petition aimed at educating doctors. Please pass it on to friends and family, the B12 lobby could do with your help with this. The solution to this lack of knowledge lies in the hands of people who use the social Internet. This petition had only gathered 230 signatures in 4 months until a few of us started circulating it in relevant sites... Now two weeks later there are 350 signatures on it. But there are 1000s of people out there to which this is relevant and I think more people should know about this. Please sign this petition and pass it on... That is how we can make a difference...

I got dx'd in 06 and the docs refused to entertain the idea that my b12 deficiency history could be a factor. even though it's a known differential dx. on the one hand my doctor's computer system had a glitch so that my 'undetectable' result was undetectable in itself. on the other I wouldn't do a washout test to prove existing deficiency, because I was terrified. not to mention that the reference range is useless. so yes, b12 deficiency is a well known differential diagnosis for ms, but ime you can have it, have the lab work, and it still won't make a difference in the process. patients have to advocate for themselves for sure.

As with every other occasion when you suffer from a chronic disease you the patient probably know more about your condition than the general practitioner, so I agree we have to advocate for ourselves if we can or get someone else to do it.

The simple fix it, get a B 12 injection. A lady friends nails and had not grown for over two years. I suggested B 12 shot. She did it and her hair and nails started to grow almost immediately. That was over 25 years ago. She is still doing it 2 to 4 times a year. Recently her doctor gave a deal $25.00 for 10 injections anytime want one. They are non toxic. For the first round, 3 over 3 months may fix the problem. More often if result are slow in coming. The body stores B 12 up to 6 months in the body. Shortage of B12 can cause many problems and many have many different symptoms. …dez...
