Although the title of this forum has the word anaemia in it Pernicious Anaemia is actually a misnomer and it is in fact about a condition that causes a particular vitamin deficiency - B12. One of the symptoms of B12 deficiency is a particular type of anaemia in which red blood cells are larger and rounder than normal.

Unfortunately this forum is probably not the best place for your question and I'm not sure what forum might be better able to help. You could try searching under my communities for other forums that might be better positioned to respond.
