Presenting a wide scope of problems caused by B12 deficiency, this comprehensive guide provides up-to-date medical information about symptoms, testing, diagnosis, and treatment. Written for both the patient and the interested layperson, this detailed book outlines how physicians frequently misdiagnose B12 deficiency as Alzheimer's disease, multiple sclerosis, heart disease, mental retardation, Parkinson's disease, depression, or other mental illnesses. Now in the second edition, this resource has been thoroughly updated with the latest research, diagnostic tests, treatment options, case studies, and testimonials.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A MUST READ - B12 an under-utilized wonder drug. I have to temper my enthusiasm for this book because it has made a huge contribution to my well-being. If you have a B12 deficiency you MUST read this book. The authors suggest a new protocol for B12 that has changed the quality of my life. This book explains how B12 therapy may help alleviate many medical symptoms that affect the health of your nerves, brain, blood and immune system. You may be taking B12 already, but this book will help you figure out if you are taking the right amount, and in the right form (cyanocobalamin, hydroxocobalamin, methylcobalamin, etc.). Many people who are deficient in B12 have B12 blood serum levels that are considered normal. The standard reference range for normal B12 blood serum is between 200pg/ml - 900pg/ml. This book argues that B12 blood serum levels should be greater than 450 pg/ml to be considered in the normal range. Those that fall in the 'grey zone", 200 - 450 pg/ml, may need B12 therapy. I lost 2/3 of my short bowel and no longer have an ileum. The ileum contains receptors needed for B12 absorption, so I will always need B12 injections. Thanks to this book, I no longer inject myself with an intermuscular needle; a subcutaneous needle works very well. These needles are shorter and finer, so they're easier to use. There is so much valuable information in this book. Anyone who is B12 deficient, or thinks they might be, should read it. Share this book with your health-care professionals and those you care about. Don't keep it to yourself; It is a precious gift.
