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 received orally or via
injection. One injection study showed that B12 eased
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 Burlington and Hamilton chiropractor about the best approach for you toward healthy B12 status!
