My husband has all the symptoms of B12 deficiency and 7 weeks ago had it tested.
Level was 222 range 180 - 1100. G.P said he was depressed but we disagreed and eventually she said he could have the injections.
He had the first one and initially felt worse (which I believe can happen) but over the weeks there has been a slight gradual improvement.
One lingering symptom remains and that is that he feels breathless. He had had a chest X-Ray and blew into the metre and both results were good.
He went back yesterday for the results and saw a different G.P. she said there had been a recent survey which revealed that tablets work as good as injections and has now cancelled his next injection.
The tablets she has given him are Cyanocobalamin 50mcg one a day.
Does anyone know if these are as good as the injections as from my little knowledge the tablets will not work as well, I do not even think they are the lozengers that dissolve under the tongue just the one's to swollen with water.
Thank you browny
