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!
