An excellent article - thank you for posting Bluepetals.

Indian doctors are much more knowledgeable about of the complex symptoms of B12 deficiency having seen them in Hindu vegan/vegetarians.

GPs here are generally more rigid about diagnosing only on test results - latest BMJ research states that there is, in fact, no gold standard test for PA/B12 deficiency and it is the clinical condition and symptoms of the patient that are important......
