MD<br><br>"Vitamin B12 deficiency is nothing to sneeze at. I have
multiple<br>patients<br>who have developed neurologic deficits due to B12
deficiency on an<br>unsupplemented vegan diet. Two of these
were young, under 30 years of<br>age, and vegan for
only 6-8 years. They were both unable to walk
due<br>to<br>neurologic damage from B12 deficiency. As someone stated
earlier, a<br>B12<br>level can give you a hint you might
be deficient, but many with B12<br>levels<br>above
200 are deficient too. This is determined by checking
an MMA<br>(methyl melonic acid). Inadequate B12 can
also cause subtle long-term<br>damage with no
symptoms, until the serious irreversible problem<br>arises.
