How’s Your Vitamin B12 Level?

Vitamin B12 keeps the nerves and blood cells healthy. Mild B12 deficiency may be unnoticed. More advanced B12 deficiency may produce anemia, tiredness, pale skin, appetite drop, constipation, diarrhea, heart palpitations, etc. One concerning condition related to B12 deficiency is subacute combined degeneration of the spinal cord after nitrous oxide anesthesia. (2) Improving B12 status can be valuable. B12 may be delivered orally or via injection. One injection study showed that B12 relieved low back pain and disability and lowered 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 Toronto chiropractor about the best approach for you toward healthy B12 status!
