Vitamin B12 Injection

Vitamin B12 is necessary for making red blood cells and is important for the health of nerve cells and the formation of genetic material. Initial symptoms of vitamin B12 deficiency include dizziness and fatigue. Without treatment, deficiency can result in worsening anaemia, damage to the nervous system and other health issues.

Vitamin B12, also called cobalamin, is a water-soluble vitamin found in certain foods: meat, fish, milk products and eggs. Vegetables alone are an inadequate source of vitamin B12.

According to a New Zealand Adult Nutrition Survey, 8% of the population may be vitamin B12 deficient.  The level of vitamin B12 in the body can be measured by a blood test.  If you have low levels of vitamin B12 your doctor may prescribe hydroxocobalamin, which is given as an injection.  Book yours today!
