How’s 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 related
to B12 deficiency is subacute combined degeneration of the spinal cord after
nitrous oxide anesthesia. (2) Improving B12 status
can help. B12 may be delivered orally or via
injection. One injection study revealed that B12 eased
low back pain and disability and lowered patients’ use
of paracetamol for pain relief. (3) B12 deficiency may be evaded by
having meat, poultry, seafood, dairy products, and eggs or taking
B12 supplements. Talk with your Preston chiropractor about the best way for you to
maintain a healthy B12 status!
