Low energy and fatigue are often due to low levels of B12 and can be easily confirmed by a simple blood test. Although the amount of B12 people require is quite small, many do not absorb their food well enough to attain optimal levels of B12. Even a small insufficiency can cause decreased energy levels and fatigue; a larger deficiency can affect heart health, by elevating homocysteine levels or contribute to neuropathies. Certain medicines such as Metformin (for diabetics) or proton-pump inhibitors (acid-blockers) for reflux can also lower B12 levels.
A B12 injection is quick and easy to administer and can dramatically help patients who are trying to regain their health, or complement their existing wellness program. Preventive Medicine offers a Preservative free 1,000mcg Methylcobalamin injection.
