Re: Try plant based diet: new study

i have a previously scheduled appointment this week with my GP for a monthly b12 shot and med check. I will talk to him about my concern with not feeling any better yet and ask about checking other nutrient levels. I will find out which type of b12 injection I have been getting. He is always open to...

Re: Try plant based diet: new study

Thank you, thank you, thank you to all of you. You have given me more information in 3 days than anyone else has for months. The information you shared and the links you provided gave me ideas of what to ask my doctors about. I hope to be able to come back later with a positive health update!

Re: Try plant based diet: new study

Thanks for the explanation. I did some reading about it and I also watched the YouTube video that was posted as a link.

Re: Try plant based diet: new study

Thank you for the information! After posting last night I did go back and read through old posts and the other links that were given. I wish I was better at reading the medical jargon but I'm trying to make sense of it all. I will check out more as the day goes on. Yes, I am in the states so the B12...

Re: Try plant based diet: new study

Jimmylegs, I am very interested in the story of how you were diagnosed. I don't have diagnosis but have been through some testing due to paresthesia, rib/chest pain, gait issues and vision disturbances. I have been vegetarian most of my life and went vegan 6 years ago. I knew that I needed to supple...
