Publisher's Summary

Presenting a wide scope of problems caused by B12 deficiency, this comprehensive guide provides up-to-date medical information about symptoms, testing, diagnosis, and treatment. 

Could it Be B12?, essential for both the patient and the interested layperson, outlines how physicians frequently misdiagnose B12 deficiency as Alzheimer's disease, multiple sclerosis, heart disease, neurodevelopmental disorder, Parkinson's disease, depression, or other mental illnesses. Now in the second edition, this resource has been thoroughly updated with the latest research, diagnostic tests, treatment options, case studies, and testimonials.

Saved my life!

I couldn’t be more grateful for this book. After listening to it I’ve recognised some of my symptoms and pulled out a blood test done 7 months ago. I did a bunch of googling to understand all the abbreviations and saw that my red blood cells are enlarged and have a very low count so I called up my doctor who totally missed this back in February.

She called me in immediately. I told her that since my surgery (with gas anaesthetic) I’ve been hearing voices and became super depressed. I was already suicidal and hopeless. I told her I read a book where I learnt about B12 and I think I’ve got a deficiency.

They did both serum and urinary test and while my level fell into the grey zone (335 ng/mL), I insisted on treatment. They put me on weekly shots and daily oral supplement.

After the first shot, the next day I felt already so much better! It’s been 4 weeks now. Depression and voices are gone, my energy is back to normal.

I’m vegan for 3 years and never took supplements. Now I’m on a daily oral supplement and I will surely take it.

This book is so useful and educational! Get it for yourself and your family!

If you have any...

symptoms your doctor's can't figure out, read this book and if it fits, demand the tests. If the tests are negative, you've lost a few dollars and checked another "not that" box. If they're positive and you get proper treatment you could literally save your own life, regain function, be in less pain, have less fatigue, stop brain damage, repair nerves to a certain extent. Which would you rather lose? A few dollars, or your health, your mind or possibly your life?

It's a real written love and revelation

If you or a loved one are suffering neurologic, nervous, or blood issues, it would be a good idea to go ahead and give this a listen or a read. It's a beautifully written, well read, and wonderfully researched book. The writers have a lot of experience and understanding and should be heard throughout the medical field.

Petty review-Good info, moderately annoying.

I’m being petty. I know this is a book about b12 deficiency but if I heard the words “b12 deficiency” one more time I could have perforated my ear drums with my b12 injection syringes. I have malabsorption and know what b12-d feels like. So I do feel that the information is useful. This almost makes it seem like everyone is deficient at some point which is fine if that’s the case. The information was interesting but honestly if she had done more- “studies show…” and less, “this one time at band camp…” ‘this kid couldn’t play the flute because he was b12-d’ it could have shortened the book by about 5 hours. Maybe if they had just compiled all the studies into a separate case study section it would have helped. Also, the words “mentally retarded” were used quite a bit which dated the book and made me search whether the info was even relevant. I’ve read several other books that attribute these same symptoms to a gluten sensitivity. It would be interesting to see the link between b12, absorption and gluten if there is one.

Good content, dramatic stories

Good information that has been lost in our current medical system. More research needs to be done.

Brilliant book for modern health

This is a book, that it well written and narrated. Extremely informative f oor anyone struggling with health issues, and no tf finding answers. Also for those with ongoing malabsorption B12 issues, as so many more health issues were highlighted than previously been aware of.
Highly recommend this book as a Family Medical Resource book, and great relative reading for anyone interested in matters of health, impaired paediatric development, dementia, and an array of depressive and other disorders, that may benefit if found to be B12 deficient.
