Treatment

After various visits to doctors Sara was eventually prescribed the right dosage of B12 that aided her recovery.

“A second doctor would only prescribe low dose oral B12 which was entirely useless for the advanced neurological symptoms,” the study said.

“Eventually after changing doctor a third time, injection loading doses were given. Luckily Sara is now in safe hands with a doctor who has updated their previously poor knowledge of B12 deficiency.
