Freddd or anyone

Some medical people are advocating using injectable hydroxo or methyl b12 as long as there are neurological symptoms.

Thoughts and comments appreciated.

  • Well, cat, if by "medical people" you're referring to actual doctors, I have yet to talk to any doctor who even knows of the many forms of b12.A Gastroenterologist said to me, "b12 is b12, the only difference is, they come in different boxes by different manufacturers". An Endocrinologist said to me, "your b12, which was 85, is now 385, you are being treated well enough at 1 injection of cyanocobalamin per month". A Hematologist said to me, "you're very young to be suffering from pernicious anemia". I'm 50. When I asked which form of b12 was preferred, I was told, "whichever brand the hospital carry's". I was also laughed at when I said I felt better soon after my injection, I was told, "that's not possible, b12 doesn't work that way". Also, "b12 is the only treatment I need, there are no such thing as cofactors".Have I been lucky and just found doctors that just don't know? Or, are these other forms of b12 just a figment of my imagination, all made up to make me look silly at the doctors office?Rant off
