Hi drs.....What are the signs that indicate some one has B12 deficiency ?Do vitamin b1+b6+b12 deficiency have the same signs as B12 deficiency ?

In brief: Get checked

Glad you asked. B1 deficiency is rare in people on a diet anywhere close to normal, and b6 deficiency is even less familiar to medicine.
B12 deficiency, by contrast, is famously subtle. It is likely to be relatively low in your diet if you're a vegetarian, and several common illnesses prevent its being absorbed through the gut. Simply feeling unwell or slowed mentally precedes the numb fingers.
