TIP OF THE MONTH:
How Is Your Vitamin B12 Level?
Vitamin B12 keeps
the nerves and blood cells healthy. Mild B12 deficiency may be undetected.
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 status
can help. B12 may be delivered orally or via
injection. One injection study showed that B12 relieved
low back pain and disability and lowered patients’ use
of paracetamol for pain relief. (3) B12 deficiency may be avoided by
eating meat, poultry, seafood, dairy products, and eggs or taking
B12 supplements. Talk with your Williamson chiropractor about the best way for you to
maintain a healthy B12 status!
