Hi. I have been having b12 injections for 3 years, my daughter also. I am worried that I caused this condition to happen to myself and to my daughter, and that I might cause it to happen in my youngest son. But she is the middle child (17 years) of 3 (the boys don't seem to have any signs of deficiency) yet they have always had basically the same diet (the eldest is 19 and does eat meat these last few years; the 10 year old won't touch meat.)
To be fair I have always eaten a lot of eggs, cheese, and milk in tea etc, (not so much my daughter though) so is it something that would have happened anyway? I know meat eaters who have the injections so perhaps I didn't cause it ?
I read yesterday that the contraceptive pill can deplete b12, is it possible that during the 25 years of taking it had an effect and caused me to be unable to absorb?
Thanks to anyone who can shed some light.
