Anyone here B-12 deficient?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I just started B-12 injections for being deficient.  Anyone have experience with this?  Did it take you long to get back to normal range?

I was was deficient during one of my pregnancies and got the shots. I felt better very quickly and it only lasted during the pregnancy. My dad who is old has to get shots monthly. It works really well for him. I expect I will have problems eventually since it may run in the family and I'm a strict vegetarian. I hope it works quickly for you.

I had my first shot on Friday.  I hope it doesn't take long to catch up.  However, I am also Vitamin D deficient again.  So it is hard to tell yet.

I was only occult deficient, (meaning it was kinda low and supplementation helped) but my dr said there was a British study recently showing that oral supplementation is as effective as the shots. I don't know if that was specifically for occult or for real deficiency too.
