Diarrhea After Sublingual B12?
0

9 posts in this topic

Anyone ever had this experience?

I bought some Sublingual B12 from New Beginnings Nutritionals (http://www.nbnus.net/shopexd.asp?id=338), 1-2 hours after taking the recommended dosage I got diarrhea. Thought it might be an odd coincidence, so I tried again the next day (with a smaller dosage), the same thing happened (with a somewhat smaller reaction).

I find this sorta odd, seeing as the only ingredients listed are the b12 itself, purified water, citric acid and potassium sorbate.

I never had a problem with citric acid and I can't seem to find anything that says potassium sorbate could cause any problems.

The label clearly states that the product contains NO yeast, gluten, soy, milk/dairy, corn, sodium, sugar, starch, artificial coloring, preservatives or flavorling.

The only thing I could IMAGINE is that it somehow contains eggs, could the b12 itself be extracted from eggs?

Please help! Thanks in advance!

I had problems with a B12 sublingual too, only it contained Mannitol, but I tested myself with Mannitol alone and had no problem. My side effect was an acne-like all over my face :(

I gave my Mom my sublinguals and found completely different CHEWABLE b12's @ my local health food store.

GOOD LUCK!!! B)

Do you react to corn? Often times, citric acid is made from corn. I wouldn't be surprised if they can still claim it has no corn, though I'm not sure of course.

I wonder if you might do better with a lozenge rather than a liquid. The only one I know of without sugar-alcohols is made by Natural Factors. However, it has lactose, so obviously not for everyone. The UPC code is: 068958012421.

Hiya Blondie!! :)

The health food store I go to 1: one of the owner's has Celiac and 2:his wife has Adrenal Exhaustion from taking care of him for years...

so they are very supportive & their own house brand is celiac friendly

"chewable" b12 ingredient list:

cellulose, stearic acid, natural lemon flavor, magnesium stearate, silicone dioxide

hope this helps!

    • Most New Celiac Patients Show Normal Bone Density
      Some doctors recommend that patients with newly diagnosed celiac disease get scanned for bone density. Several researchers recently set out to assess the bone density results in a cohort of patients with celiac disease. View the full article
    • Kidney disease question
      Hi all,   I don't know whether kidney disease is celiac related or not but hopefully someone here can advise.
      I recently had a general blood test as I'd been feeling unwell. I think I've been glutened tbh but I also felt lethargic and out of sorts. I asked for thyroid and other levels to be checked. Frustratingly they didnt run the TTG - something I'm really down about. Anyway, The doctor looked at my test results and told me (via the receptionist) there was nothing to worry about. Given past experiences I requested a paper copy of the results and I found the following under the renal profile section:

      Renal profile 142 (135-145)
      Serum Sodium 4.7 (3.5 5.3)
      Serum potassium 5.5 (2.5 - 7.5)
      Serum urea 93 (62 - 120)
      Serum creatinine 93 (62 - 120)
      GFR 77ml/min/1.73m^2 - STAGE 2: CKD only if other evidence of renal damage

      The doctor is presumably happy with this but I'm a little concerned. Should I ask for a doctors appointment and perhaps a urine test? Is the GFR result on its own not sufficient reason to investigate further? 
      Many thanks for any advice you can offer

      Matt

    • New to this gluten-free life
      So I just got diagnosed with celiacs and I felt like after all the testing and stuff I would finally get the information my fiancé and I so badly needed about what is wrong with me, but the doctor came in the room at our appt and spent about 15 minutes with us talking a little bit about cross contamination, then said I need to avoid gluten like i would arsenic then sent us on our way! So I guess I am looking for some good tips and information about what is really wrong with me! I know own it's an auto immune disease. I just feel scares because I am so uneducated about it and it's such a big change. I just want to know what to do and do it right so I feel better!

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
