The B12 Deficiency Support Group (which is now a charity)has brought you this page to support anyone who suffers from any of a wide range of symptoms, including fatigue (or overwhelming tiredness, may be diagnosed as ME, PV CFS - Post Viral Chronic Fatigue Syndrome), pins and needles (including strange feelings in the face, arms, legs, numbness, "socks and gloves"), loss of power (haven't got strength in your arm or leg, can't swallow, difficulty with eyesight), memory and thinking problems (sometimes called "the fogs", could develop into dementia and/or Alzheimer's disease), digestive problems (frequently called Crohn's disease), infertility and/or menorrhagia, and autoimmune disease.
The B12 Deficiency Support Group (B12d, for short) is a charity. Our aims are to:
We rely entirely on donations. Although B12 supplements are funded on NHS, they are only funded for a very narrow group of conditions. We show here and in our audits that a much wider range of conditions can beneficially be treated with Vitamin B12 replacement therapy, and we will support this.
We work closely with the Pernicious Anaemia Society
you can find out a lot more about B12 deficiency, what symptoms to look out for and how you can get treatment, by following the links on the left hand side. They open out into 'Books' ‐ please go ahead and click on them!
