I am currently experiencing various symptoms, and my blood showed that I have borderline low B12. I had the loading doses of Vit B12 which improved my symptoms. However my GP is reluctant to diagnose me with pernicious anaemia. I read somewhere that you are more likely to have pernicious anaemia if you have a first relative with vitiligo. I know my mother has vitiligo, but I have just discovered that my father also has it. I can't remember where I read it. Can anyone point me in the direction of any literature that states there is a link between first relatives with vitiligo and pernicious anaemia to help my diagnosis?
