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. One can be vitamin B12 deficient without becoming anemic and/or without having deficient IF. Best wishes:) ...Read more

Which form: Which forms the vitamins are can matter. For example, B6 comes inactive and also active. The active form of B6 is pyridoxal-5-phosphate. Too much inactive B6 can actually block active B6 from the B6 receptor, creating symptoms of B6 deficiency. Folic acid is synthetic, and too much can be bad also. Methylfolate and folinic acid are what one should take during pregnancy. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
