Our Community needs to understand vitamin B-12 deficiency now,
COVID19 will not let us wait.

The WHO confirmed.

A sudden and swift shift in healthcare and our communities
understanding of B-12 and it's cofactors

would benefit us all.


Aggressive treatment is needed for neuro recovery.

Healthcare providers and community members. 
***  Labs are very erroneous creating a large diagnosis gap.
***  Stress exacerbates this deficiency rapidly. Community not handling the stress of the COVID19 pandemic as well as Long Haul (PASC) COVID community members are affected. (PTSD).

***  B-12 deficiency affects nerves* gut* brain* tissue*.   Systemically— it presents differently for each person (some psych, some skin, some vision, etc.)

MD's -Aggressive treatment with B-12 and cofactors while monitoring fluid shifts would greatly benefit patients and our communities.

 

LABS to Run.

*Serum homocysteine (hcys)

*(MMA) methylmalonic acid

*intrinsic Factor blocking antibody (ifab)
*folate

*ferritin

*magnesium

*potassium

Monitor/cofactor.

*potassium

*folate

*magnesium

*Omega-3s
*Collagen Peptides
*Biotin
*Calcium
*B2 (riboflavin) and B3 (niacin)

*Selenium

*** A, C, D, E, iron, zinc, copper


Consider.
*B12 - daily or EOD IM or SQ hydroxocobalamin with cofactors for a minimum of 90 days for any neuro symptom.  (see Albert Mir, MD new work on possible sublingual efficacy below)

THE STUDIES show….
 

Berlin estimates 50% of the western civilization is B-12 deficient. The NW study reflects this at 42%.

 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, MENTAL HEALTH disease and or mortality and morbidity will increase if this is left untreated.

Note- Labs will be erroneous with any B12 drinks or supplements in the last 4 months.

***Serums may be normal even high with the patient in a functional deficit. Treat to symptoms. ANY neuro symptom is an indicator of a B-12 deficiency. Left untreated -it can manifest with more dire consequences in the body years from now.

The Mayo study above 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,
Bean

***NOTE-  tests can be very erroneous. your pt can still be in *functional deficit*. - treat to symptoms.
