B12 deficiency

A past post re a doctor who had unknown B12 deficiency, despite being a doctor and working in a hospital - not one doctor/specialist knew what was wrong with him. As well as others with deficiency. cursor along to about 21 mins in to read about the doctor in particular.


Dr Chandy lost his licence because he prescribed lots of B12 to patients. It was also reinstated because he, like Dr Skinner, kept meticulous files on his patients.

It's difficult to understand how a doctor can lose his licence for making patients better. When we have all these c**p doctors that make people worse! Should be they who lose their licences. Not the Drs Chandy/Skinners of this world. :'(

You are correct. We know the authorities are wrong and these doctors right - because the patient recovers with their treatment of the 'person' rather than treating by blood test alone.

How many people, in this country, with B12 defiiency are diagnosed with MS or other very serious illnesses but are actuall B12 deficient.

The reporter omits to state that people with pernicious anaemia cannot absorb B12 whatsoever so must have injections. Those who have PA don't think a 3 monthly injection is suffiicient.

Thanks for posting shaws. I am one such person diagnosed with MS. I was a vegetarian for 16 years, without supplementing. I now eat meat and supplement, and when my MS symptoms get worse, B12 normally helps.

I was trying to copy the bbc link to pass on to people, but its not working. Could I ask you please shaws to send me a link?
