Biotin And B12
No effect expected: Shots of vitamins b6, b12, or other vitamins should not have an effect on one's weight.

Take only if needed: If you are vitamin B12 defecient, then a B12 supplement can help with anemia and nerve function. If you are not B12 defecient, the it will not help. Overdosing of Vitamin B12 can cause nerve dysfunction, diarrhea, and other side effects. My general advice is that if you do not have a vitamin defeciency, the a general multivitamin once daily is all that you need. ...Read more
Yes, but...: It is too much, unless you have severe absorption problems, but 2500mcg should solve that. You will pee out the excess since it will shortly saturate your body supply and it is non toxic. You will pee out the excess! ...Read more

Yes it is safe: But my question is why you are taking these doses. Raising the serum level does not really matter at all. It is the intracellular level that matters and we cannot measure that. It is your overall health that decides the issue. ...Read more

Please what's the difference between pernicious anemia and vitamin B12 deficiency.my iron levels are perfect.I'm getting injections for vitamin b12.
Intrinsic factor: Vitamin B12 is present in meat and animal protein foods. Absorption of B12 occurs in the intestine (ileum) and requires intrinsic factor (IF), made by stomach cells. In pernicious anemia, IF production is deficient, and results in anemia, a reduction in hemoglobin/hematocrit.
