Many people suffer from B12 vitamin deficiency, especially with the growing popularity of veganism, vegetarianism, and other specialty diets and lifestyles. Others who may be more susceptible to vitamin B12 deficiency are patients diagnosed with Crohn’s disease or celiac disease, and those who have undergone intestinal procedures such as weight loss surgery.
While many who are deficient opt for oral, over-the-counter supplements, we recommend approaching the deficiency head-on with B12 injections. This form of supplementation is beneficial and safe and can help treat a variety of symptoms while preventing damage to the body from the deficiency. In fact, some who aren’t deficient in vitamin B12 choose to take advantage of this supplementation as it offers a variety of health and behavioral benefits such as increased energy, improvements in mood, and weight loss.
