Vitamin D and Vitamin B 12 Deficiencies
by: Kerri Knox, RN- The Immune Queen

Hi Sandy,

Well, vitamin deficiencies CAN be serious, but that all depends upon your definition of serious.

Lets just say that they need attention!

So, there are many reasons for these deficiencies and without knowing more about your condition, it is impossible to determine WHY you have these deficiencies.

But if you have these two deficiencies, it's possible that you MAY have some absorption problems and/or you are just not eating as well as you should. If you are a vegan (no animal products at all), there are few sources of these two vitamins in a strictly vegetable based diet and many vegans are deficient in these two vitamins.

One of the few good vegetarian sources of Vitamin B 12, however, is Cracked Cell Chlorella which is an excellent overall dietary supplement as well as a wonderful aid in detoxification. It is highly recommended.

But if it is an absorption issue, Sandy, it's possible that you may have Celiac Disease or some degree of gluten sensitivity. If you are having any chronic health problems, it would likely benefit you to read about Gluten Sensitivity to see if going on a trial of a gluten free diet would be of benefit to you.
