Anthony Bray, MD : Hello!
Anthony Bray, MD : b12 deficiency causes fatigue/ anemia/ peripheral neuropathy symptoms( weakness and numbness if toes would be due to this)
Anthony Bray, MD : certain symptoms sound related to other causes,,, hair loss for example...
Anthony Bray, MD : I would treat the deficiency more aggressively with shots of 1000mcg once a week times two doses then every two weeks times two doses then once a month ...
Anthony Bray, MD : the nasal spray form is ok for maintenance in my opinion but not great to catch you up ...
Anthony Bray, MD : even with aggressive treatment you may expect it to take several months to have full benefit...
Anthony Bray, MD : B12 is connected to both the body's manufacture if red cells in the bone marrow and proper function of the brain and nervous system!!
Anthony Bray, MD : so you do need time and continue of B12 supplement to correct the deficiency!!
Anthony Bray, MD : I hope that this information helps !
