Is B-12 Deficiency a permanent situation?
by Jo Ellan
About six years ago, blood work showed I had pernicious anemia based on the large platelets, etc. My physician told me this indicated B-12 Deficiency and subsequently sent me to a Neurologist who prescribed regular B-12 injections and Folate. I have not had regular check up on blood work for B-12 deficiency.
Is this deficiency life-time and should I get annual blood work for this?
Thank you very much for a reply. I am a 76 year old female, in good physical condition, but I do have moderate depression and also regular memory problems - but have decided that is just aging.
