Re: B12 Deficiency
Jun 17, 2008
Hi snowmelts, i think when people have a true deficiency in B12 they would show at least some change in symptoms pretty early on when first starting the supplement, even though it may take years to undo the damage or even repair the nerves to some degree and the repairing process may differ in different cases, some show relief early or others like myself have periods of flaring of symptoms then followed by lessening of symptoms for a short periods then followed on by on going of flaring as the nerves are trying to regenerate.

The liver usually retains b12 for use later on when it's needed, once that supply has been used up by whatever reason, like diet, medication or malabsorption issues, that's when the nerves get damaged not only can the peripheral nerves can be damaged but can even affect the central nervous system and have horrible long term results.

B12 is certainly not the answer for everyone with PN, simply because of the hundreds of reasons for nerve damage, but a real good one to rule out.
