Vitamin B-12 - Deficiency Aftermath

Font : A-A+

Vitamin B-12 - Deficiency Aftermath

The plausible symptoms and adverse consequences of vitamin B-12 deficiency render the bone marrow incapacitated to produce the required amount of red blood cells. This could give rise to megaloblastic anemia (characterized by a reduction in the number of hemoglobin or red blood cells)

Also, high homocysteine levels in the blood are an aftermath and are associated with an increased risk of heart attacks and strokes.

Vitamin B-12 deficiency can trigger permanent neurological damage. Problems could manifest as trouble with walking, amnesia, reduced mental capacity, tingling and numbness of arm and legs.
