I have recently moved from Australia to England. In Aus I was diagnosed with and being treated for B12 deficiency, receiving jabs every 2-3 weeks due to my body not retaining B12... which were life changing for me. However, since arriving back in the UK I have not received a jab for over 4 months and my GP and Haematologist won't even discuss the situation. I cannot persue the NHS route and I feel forced to self medicate.
In the UK, are there any Private GPs or alternative therapists, Naturopaths etc that you know help with B12 issues, diagnose and administer the shots?
I am feeling so saddened to think of how others are suffering. I want to help. Can I? I am not an expert B12'er like some of you on here, but I am an expert in my B12 situation and I desperately want to 'spread the word' or do something productive. I feel so, so many people could be saved if just given a regular B12 shot.
I can use a computer, go online, purchase B12 supplements etc... but what about those who can't?
For those who have been persuing this B12 mission, is there anything you can recommend to do to try and encourage change? (of course i'm aware I can't change the world alone!)
I was just reading about Dr Jason Chandry's story. I am appalled and sickened. What is happening??
I know this is old news... but it's shocking.
Out of interest, to those who inject, do you let your GP know that you are self medicating?
Lastly, I thought there was a pinned post about how to self inject...? I can't seem to find it. Could someone direct me please (I can only see about 4 pinned posts).
Thanks for reading and I just wanted to say thank you to those of you who have spend such time sharing your knowledge and advice on this site. You experienced ones make such a difference.
