Supplements: Taking folic acid could 'mask' warning signs of a vitamin B12 deficiency

1 min read


While the exact cause of the onset of pernicious anaemia is currently unclear, treatment usually involves the injection of B12.

Pernicious anaemia is a life-long condition, thus vitamin B12 injections will be required every two to three months for the rest of your life.

If, however, a vitamin B12 deficiency is caused by your diet, you might be required to take prescribed vitamin B12 tablets between meals.

Good sources of vitamin B12 include meat, fish, eggs, and dairy; as such, vegans are at risk of a vitamin B12 deficiency if they do not consume foods fortified with vitamin B12.
