B12 Deficiency & Kids
I have been studying Vitamin B12 Deficiency for years and one of my favorite books on the topic was the first book by these authors called “Could It Be B12 Deficiency” An Epidemic of Misdiagnoses. So when I saw the pediatric update version of the book I was quite excited.
Here is an excerpt from the book that you might find helpful.
WHAT DO THESE WOMEN AND CHILDREN HAVE IN COMMON?
• A 3-year-old boy exhibits severe developmental delay and receives a diagnosis of autism . . .
• A 28-year-old woman is unable to conceive . . .
• A 6-month-old baby develops therapy-resistant seizures . . .
• An 8-year-old boy is prescribed Prozac because of odd, uncontrollable behaviour . . .
• A 12-year-old boy slowly loses his ability to walk and write, becoming bedridden . . .
• A 9-month-old baby stops responding to his parents and can no longer sit up by himself . . .
• A 38-year-old mother is condemned to life in a wheelchair after gastric bypass surgery . . .
• A 7-year-old boy has obsessive-compulsive behaviors, and a wide-based gait . . .
. An 18-year-old can’t concentrate or understand her instructors and drops out of her first semester of college . . .
• A 9-year-old girl needs to attend a special school for handicapped children because she has an IQ of 60 . . .
• A 15-year-old teen becomes severely depressed and tries to kill herself . . .
• A 31-year-old with severe postpartum depression has thoughts of harming her infant . . .
Here’s what these patients don’t have in common: a correct diagnosis. Instead these women and children have been given a plethora of incorrect, often hopeless diagnoses: developmental delay, autism, depression, multiple sclerosis, Asperger’s syndrome, cerebral palsy, attention deficit disorder, and mental illness. But in reality, they all suffer from the same medical condition . . . VITAMIN B12 DEFICIENCY
I am forever grateful that I ran across this information many years ago and I have helped many people to uncover their Vitamin B 12 Deficiencies because of it!
I highly recommend having your Vitamin B-12 levels checked when you visit your Doctor or Health Professional at your check-up or if you are having mystery symptoms that correlate with any of the above. And as a general practice with all of my clients, I always recommend everyone know what their B12 levels are.
