I'm off to London tomorrow to have my Vitamin B12 tested as I have read that it is common for those with Hashi's to also be Vitamin B12 deficient. Am I right in understanding that the logic is that with one auto-immune condition (I in fact have 3!) it may be possible that I also have auto-immune pernicious anaemia?
As some of you know, I am trying to get to the bottom of my depression and out the other side. What I have read about the links between B12 and mental health is fascinating. What I'd like to clarify, though is should I be deficient, what next? How do they establish if it's pernicious anaemia or diet? And if it's the former, what is the recommended medication?
