TIP OF THE MONTH:
How Is Your Vitamin B12 Status?
Vitamin B12 maintains the health of nerves and blood cells. Mild B12 deficiency may be unnoticed.
More advanced B12 deficiency may produce anemia, fatigue,
pale skin, appetite drop, constipation, diarrhea, heart
palpitations, etc. One concerning condition linked
to B12 deficiency is subacute combined degeneration of the spinal cord after
nitrous oxide anesthesia. (2) Recovering B12 level
can be valuable. B12 may be received orally or via
injection. One injection study showed that B12 eased
low back pain and disability and reduced patients’ consumption
of paracetamol for pain relief. (3) B12 deficiency may be avoided by
having meat, poultry, seafood, dairy products, and eggs or taking
B12 supplements. Talk with your Vancouver chiropractor about the best approach for you toward healthy B12 status!
