I purchased this book after a friend was diagnosed with Pernicious anaemia - what an eye opener. Having suffered with a gastric problem for years and suffering from some of the symptoms mentioned I have started taking the B12 time release tablet and feel better than I have for years. I have now ordered the B12 lozenge Methyl B12 1000 mg but will be seeing GP to request the B12 tests although looking at the NHS web site on B12 deficiency I do not hold out much hope of getting assistance as they are stating up to 200 on your reading is "normal" the book is stating the opposite, you need to get this book if you have any health problems that you cannot explain or find hard to accept. This book is for all age groups and one for every person interested in getting better from aches, pains, sudden anxiety feelings being put down to old age or menopause - Lord how often I have had that one thrown at me! You will be horrified, like me at the illnesses covered, at the lack of understanding by the medical profession of this simple test, the Boots health web site is better informed than the NHS web site if you do a search on B12 deficiency but the book is a must for every household. I have found this more interesting than "Shades of Gray" which is still untouched, this I cannot put down and no I am not a hypochondriac but do believe in helping yourself as no one else will. I just wish I had read this when my mother started showing signs of dementia then diagnosed as Alzheimers - I will always wonder if the B12 would have helped lessen some of the symptoms. Unfortunately lack of B12 can be very debilitating and in some case fatal or you could end up permanently and substatially disabled. I cannot praise this book enough, I am only sorry my friend had to get to such a state to bring this to my notice. Thankfully she was diagnosed before any serious permanent damage.

We all fall ill, have friends and family who fall ill and many, many times those illnesses will not be what they appear to be. Doctors don't know all the answers. And because they don't and never will, they will misdiagnose probably a significant percentage of the illnesses they come across, some of them potentially devastating and even fatal. But the tragedy of this is that it's not a doctor's lack of motivation or dedication that is the problem, it's the lack of the correct training, of ignorance and sometimes reluctance to look at what can be staring them in the face. Yet we trust our lives to them. Books like this, that highlight the possibilities of the errors our doctors make and bring to our attention the sheer danger we could find ourselves in, are crucial to every one of us.

B12 deficiency can easily be responsible for many all-too-common illnesses such as fatigue, depression, memory loss, brain fog all the way on to dementia, Alzheimers, Autism, and many more. It can mimic the symptoms of MS and Parkinsons. These are illnesses that we will ALL come across at sometime in our lives, either affecting ourselves or someone dear to us. And age has nothing to do with it. B12 deficiency can affect everyone. And if our doctors look at B12 deficiency before they look at anything else, many of these illnesses can be treated simply, quickly and cheaply long before they become a threat, long before they destroy a life, long before they devastate families and ultimately affect probably millions of people.

The more you learn about B12 deficiency the more you will realise that it is probably affecting someone you know today, someone close to you and maybe even yourself.

This book sets out the role of B12 in our bodies and how a shortage can lead to symptoms which get variously misdiagnosed as ME CFS CF Fibromyalgia Dementia and Altzhiemers - Dimentia can follow untreated chronic shortage of B12. B12 is harmless yet SO SO important. The book states the importance of the IGF-1 blood test - which tests if intrinsic factors cells (in your stomach)have been destroyed quietly by ops, ulcers or immune systeme (Other immune diseases ie hypothyroidism, arthritis rhumatoid arth. and countless others are indicators of a need to check) A lack of intrinsic cells stop B12 being absorbed and consequently other nutrients. A really eye opening book on a topic which really needs to be explored with rising number of dimentia sufferers especially. Get a copy, even pass it on to your GP as we have !

I have only just purchased this book after being diagnosed with B12 defiency when I was admitted to hospital with mental health problems in October 2008. I had been homeless for nearly 10 years and I had depression and an eating disorder. I had not long moved into permanent accommodation and was under the supervision of a nurse when my symptoms started. I first experienced numb hands and feet, severe migraines and stomach pains. It hurt so bad that I thought I was dying. No one took me seriously. My nurse put it down to not eating without even consulting a doctor. Then it escalated. Eventually, I couldn't get out of bed because my headaches were so bad. My legs were sore down the sides. Then one day I woke up and got up to go to the toilet when suddenly I fell to the floor because I had numb feet. My legs had collapsed under me. I went rapidly downhill after that. One night I had the urge to jump from my second floor flat window, head first. I knew deep down I didn't want to do it and that if I did I would be killed, so instead I ran into the kitchen and stabbed myself 3 times with a kitchen knife in my ankle. After a few minutes I got scared because I was losing so much blood that I knocked on my neighbours door, who then called an ambulance. In hospital I was given stitches and told how lucky I was that I did't do any permanent damage. I wasn't given a blood test at the hospital and they were going to let me go. Then a doctor came to see me and asked if I would speak to a psychiatrist and I agreed. That night I was sectioned. The following morning I was given a blood test. When I was told I had a B12 defiency no one informed me of the implications. Immediately I was put on iron tablets. When I started to feel worse after a couple of days I told the doctor who then put me on B12 injections.Read more ›
