B12 treatment

An untreated vitamin B12 deficiency can lead to neurological problems or pernicious anemia, which occurs when your body doesn’t have enough B12 to produce the amount of red blood cells it needs.

Vitamin B12 shots are the most common way to prevent or treat a deficiency. The injections are prescribed by our nurse practitioner and given intramuscularly.

Injections are usually given as hydroxocobalamin or cyanocobalamin. These are very effective at raising blood levels of B12 and preventing/helping to restore a deficiency.

If you are deficient in vitamin B12, then the injections are very effective at raising your blood levels.
