Vitamin B12 Injection Q & A

What is vitamin B12?

Vitamin B12 is essential for forming red blood cells, regulating metabolism, supporting nerve function, and producing DNA. You don’t produce your own supply of this vitamin; it comes from food sources. 

Foods like meat, fish, poultry, and dairy products all contain vitamin B12. Some grain products and other foods are fortified with vitamin B12. While true vitamin B12 deficiency is low among Americans, those who embrace a plant-based diet can develop a deficiency because plant foods don’t provide this essential nutrient. 

What are some signs that I might have a vitamin B12 deficiency?

Knowing what to look for can help you decide when to seek treatment for vitamin B12 deficiency. Some of the symptoms that indicate a vitamin B12 deficiency include:

  • Fatigue
  • Anemia
  • Weakness
  • Difficulty walking normally
  • Sensations of numbness or weakness in your hands, legs, or feet
  • Swollen, inflamed tongue

If you notice any of these changes, schedule a visit at Clinica San Miguel right away. A thorough diagnostic examination can help determine the source of your symptoms. If it appears you have a vitamin B12 deficiency, a series of vitamin B12 injections can be a great treatment option. 

How can vitamin B12 injections improve my health and wellness?

A series of vitamin B12 injections can correct an existing vitamin B12 deficiency. While you can get all of the vitamin B12 you need through food sources, it takes time to increase your levels through food alone. 

You can also take oral supplements or a multivitamin to increase your vitamin B12 levels, but research shows that a portion of many supplements pass completely through your digestive system without being broken down or absorbed.  

Vitamin B12 injections allow you to quickly boost your levels in a way that is safe and effective. Under the care of a skilled medical professional, these injections are a great way to supplement your other health and wellness efforts. 

You might begin to feel the positive effects right away, but it can take weeks for your body to truly benefit from a round of vitamin B12 injections.
