Recheck vitamin b12 : I would ask your doctor to recheck your vitamin B12 blood level a week or 2 after your injection to make sure your B12 level is sufficient. Since you also have an underactive thyroid, check your thyroid hormone levels. If you are taking thyroid hormone pills, the dose may need to be increased. Your fatigue may also be coming from something else.

Museum of history: Injections have moved on into the museum of history of medicine. Check with a knowledge board certified doc about fatigue. There are many possibilities but usually this can be fixed.

Yes: Absolutely. Many women are vitamin d deficient which will contribute to vitamin d deficiency in the baby (rickets). The baby should also receive a vitamin d supplement.

Does the fact that my baby bruises easily mean he has a vitamin deficiency?

No: As older infants and toddlers become mobile, they often fall and develop minor injuries. Bruising on the legs, below the knees, is very common in toddlers. However, easy bruising in non-mobile infants, bruising in uncommon places (back, stomach, upper thighs), or frequent nose or mouth bleeding might be a sign that something is wrong with your babies clotting system and needs medical attention.

Why should I get a vitamin K shot for my baby?

Prevents bleeding: Vitamin k is crucial to prevent bleeding, and newborns cannot make enough vitamin K by themselves. It is critical to receive this shot at birth, otherwise bleeding, brain damage and death can result. It is safe for your baby to receive the shot.

Probably: You just need to take one of them. I tell patients that a centrum or one a day or two flintstones chewables are just as good as an super expensive, designer prenatal vitamin.
