Can A Vitamin B12 Deficiency Cause High Blood Pressure
A blood pressure reading has two numbers: a systolic blood pressure and a diastolic blood pressure. The systolic blood pressure is the maximum pressure the blood exerts on the vessels when the heart is beating. The diastolic blood pressure is the pressure the blood exerts on the vessels in between heartbeats. Hypertension, or high blood pressure, begins when the systolic blood pressure remains above 140 or when the diastolic blood pressure remains above 90. Hypertension can be a result of increased blood flow through vessels or increased resistance to ...Read more

Error or masking: Two possibilities come to mind. One is you're not really B12 deficient. The lab erred or doc erred in interpretation. The other possibility is that you are B12 def., but take folic acid supplement. Folic acid will correct the anemia of B12 deficiency but—AND THIS IS IMPORTANT—not prevent ongoing neurological damage due to B12 deficiency. Discuss with your doc or get 2nd opinion from hematologist. ...Read more

Get a consult: "Mild vitamin B12 deficiency" is like being "a little bit pregnant." It should not happen -- ESPECIALLY if you are, as you say, pregnant. If this happened because you are a vegetarian, reconsider or start supplementing now. Otherwise, you have a right & duty to know what's happening. Your primary care physician didn't communicate answers to you -- a 2nd physician's input is in order. ...Read more
After 1 month on Zoloft (sertraline) for anxiety and depression I found I have Vitamin B12 Deficiency (blood test), can this solved by supplements or its permenant?
Your body doesn't: make vitamin B12 so you need to get it from animal-based foods or supplements. It is something vegans/vegetarians need to be especially mindful of. Conditions which impair absorption also contribute: atrophic gastritis (thinned stomach lining), lack of intrinsic factor (pernicious anemia), GI surgery, small intestinal disease, heavy drinking,etc. Most often, supplements needed lifelong. Stay well! ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Is it possible to have a vitamin B12 deficiency if your serum level is 250 p/mol? have every symptom plus high MCV and mch
As a matter of fact yes: I cannot go into the complex details, but I had two young patient's years ago, both of whom had elevated blood levels of vitamin B12. But both of them also had evidence of thiamin deficiency that would result in deficiency of energy. I concluded that vitamin B12 was collecting in the blood and not being used in metabolism. Try a supplement of thiamin and see whether the vitamin B12 levels come down. ...Read more

Clinically, patients are diagnosed with B12 deficiency through anemia first. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
High Blood Pressure (Hypertension) (Definition)
A blood pressure reading has two numbers: a systolic blood pressure (top number) and a diastolic blood pressure (bottom number). The systolic blood pressure is the pressure the blood exerts on the artery when the heart is at maximum contraction. The diastolic blood pressure is the pressure the blood exerts on the artery when the heart is at maximum relaxation. Ideal blood pressure is 120/80 or lower. High blood pressure, or hypertension, is 140/90 or higher. ...Read more
B12 deficiency can be due to a lack of absorption or intake from diet. Since B12 is primarily found in animal products (e.g., dairy, egg, meat, etc.) vegetarians are more at risk. A deficiency is suspected when rbcs increase in size (e.g., high MCV and/or MCH in cbc) and can cause megaloblastic anemia. Symptoms can include fatigue and neuropathy. It is best corrected with ...Read more
