When B12 levels are low , homosysteine levels rise and will lead to Lewy Bodies clogging up neural connections and will be what gives positive diagnosis of dementia . Many people think that dementia is a misdiagnosis . Homosysteine exits the body through vitamin pathways such as B12 , B6 , Folate and Choline .

Ah....you've struck a nerve there IWI !

My relative was misdiagnosed with dementia and ME and is now on monthly injections of B12 after a most stressful battle. She made a remarkable recovery but delay means that she may never recover her memory completely. If they had not wasted so much time waiting for MRI, etc to rule out Altzheimer's, she may have recovered completely.

There is a lot of research out there that says B12 should be considered before a diagnosis of dementia or Altzheimer's but it is being largely ignored.
