How is B12 deficiency diagnosed?
Diagnosis of B12 deficiency requires a thorough intake and a blood test. The blood test will quantify the amount of B12 present in the body. It is possible to take too much vitamin B12, so please be sure to supplement under the supervision of your healthcare provider.
Should you get injections or take an oral B12 supplement?
The choice is yours! However, many patients prefer a B12 injection as it bypasses the digestive tract and improves absorption into the bloodstream, so the effect is felt much quicker and is longer lasting. Injections are subcutaneous, using a small thin needle, which is practically painless.
