Understanding Vitamin B12
Vitamin B12, also known as cobalamin, is a water-soluble vitamin found in certain foods. However, due to limited dietary intake, deficiency or insufficiency is relatively common, especially among vegetarians and vegans.
What are the symptoms?
The symptoms of vitamin B12 deficiency can vary but may include…
- – extreme tiredness
- – lack of energy
- – breathlessness
- – faintness
- – palpitations
- – pale skin
- – loss of appetite
- – weight loss
Is vitamin B12 deficiency common among vegans or strict vegetarians?
Our bodies do not synthesise Vitamin B12. Animal-based foods like fish, meat, milk, and dairy mainly contain it. Vegans and vegetarians may face a risk of Vitamin B12 deficiency.
How is the Vitamin B12 injection given?
The vitamin B12 injection is administered as Hydroxocobalamin 1000mcg/1ml intramuscular injection in the upper arm by our fully-trained pharmacists or pharmacy technicians. Once your online consultation is reviewed and authorised by our doctors/prescribers, you can receive the injection.
What are the side effects?
While the vitamin B12 injection is generally safe and has been used for decades, some individuals may experience mild side effects such as pain, swelling, redness, or bruising at the injection site. These side effects usually subside within a few days. Rarely, headaches, itching, or nausea may occur, in which case, you should consult your GP or call 111.
