How Is Your Vitamin B12 Level?

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.

One injection study revealed that B12 eased low back pain and disability and lowered patients’ consumption of paracetamol for pain relief.

Talk with your Burlington and Hamilton chiropractor about the best approach for you toward healthy B12 status!
