Do not under estimate deficiency of Vitamin B12

Vitamin B12 is also called cobalamin and it is last vitamin of B vitamin group. Vitamin B12 is a water soluble vitamin and it plays a vital role in the normal functioning of our brain and nerves system. It also plays a vital role in the formation of blood in human body. Mostly, our body requires this vitamin in very small quantity and we need just 2 to 3 µg per daily intake of B12. However, any deficiency of this vitamin can be very fatal because it can lead to Anemia, Gastrointestinal diseases and Neurological diseases.

Earlier treatment is required to correct deficiency of Vitamin B12; otherwise, it can cause irreversible problems. The major problem with B12 deficiency patients is that it is very hard to reach this conclusion at some times. Most of tests required to check B12 deficiency in body are available in big cities and big hospitals. Sometimes, symptoms appear so late that it becomes very difficult to treat patients. Therefore, my suggestion to all friends is that they should take their patients to big hospital when they see any symptoms related to B12 deficiency.
