Vitamin B12 Injection

What Is a Vitamin B12 Injection?

Vitamin B12 is a water-soluble vitamin that is naturally present in some foods as well as available as a dietary supplement and also as prescription medicine.

Vitamin B12 is required for the proper formation of red blood cells in the body, neurological function, food digestion and metabolism, stable mood, maintenance of good energy levels and general well-being. Lack of it has been associated with various illnesses including anxiety, depression, fatigue and reduced physical and mental energy levels, dementia, anaemia and cognitive functions amongst others.

Other symptoms of B12 Deficiency include Fatigue, faintness, headaches, pale skin, loss of appetite, weight loss, pins and needles, and a painful, red tongue. Pernicious anaemia, an autoimmune disease, is one of the primary reasons. Other reasons include Crohn’s disease, procedures such as gastrectomies, and certain drugs that damage the stomach or small intestine. 

There are some groups of people who are most likely to be deficient in vitamin B12. These include older people, those with gastrointestinal disorders like Crohn’s, ulcerative colitis, reflux diseases taking, those who have had gastrointestinal surgery, vegetarians, Type 2 Diabetes individuals taking metformin and those with pernicious anaemia.
