Humans need to understand vitamin B-12 deficiencies now,
COVID19 will not let us wait.
A sudden and swift shift in healthcare and our communities understanding of B-12 and it's cofactors would benefit us all.
A personal experience: health care professionals - do not fully understand the insidious nature of this deficiency and the aggressive care needed for neuro recovery.
healthcare providers and community members.
*** Labs are very erroneous creating a large diagnosis gap to define this deficiency.
*** A Berlin group estimate 50% of the western civilization are already deficient in B-12 - therefore we are seeing a sudden or faster increase of neuro issues systemically in Covid patients and the portion of the community not handling the stress of the COVID19 pandemic.
*** B-12 deficiency affects nerves*gut*brain*tissue. Systemically— it presents differently for each pt. (some psych, some skin, some vision, etc.)
Aggressive treatment with B-12 and its cofactors while monitoring fluid shifts would greatly benefit patients.
LABS to Run.
*Serum homocysteine (hcys)
*(MMA) methylmalonic acid
*intrinsic Factor blocking antibody (ifab)
*daily or EOD IM with cofactors for a minimum of 90 days for any
neuro symptom. Omega-3s
THE STUDIES show….
*** 82% of the patients (pt) at northwestern developed neurologic manifestations with COVID-19.
Berlin estimates 50% of the western civilization is B-12 deficient. The NW study reflects this at 42%.
My research indicates - Patients with neuro symptoms will most likely develop more serious symptoms over the next 2-8 years if (active) B12 is not restored. (This is not a can drink or a simple sublingual.)
ANY Neuro sign needs treatment. AUSTISM, DEMENTIA, and MENTAL HEALTH disease will increase if this is left untreated.
B12s involvement in nerve health.
Note-Labs will be erroneous if your pt has had any B12 drinks or supplements in the last 4 months.
***Serums may be normal even high with the patient in a functional deficit. You must treat if the pt has symptoms. ANY neuro symptom is an indicator of a B-12 deficiency. Left untreated -it can manifest with much more dire consequences in the body years from now.
The Mayo study shows various presentations.
If you are a health care professional, university, or researcher I have contacted- please read the studies and reach out to the CDC with case # CDC-1232781-B4W6H4 if you agree with this information.
My goal is to bring awareness to the entire healthcare system of this particularly important topic, asap.
This is important and critical information for each Covid 19 patient. (and or ~40-50% of the Western population)
Most healthcare professionals will say nah.... it can't be B-12.... it's not.... it's way more complicated.
All my best,
