That is a great article! My family doctor would find this interesting. I think I should start taking more B12.

Since Folic Acid and B vitamins nearly did me in (prior to the Celiac diagnosis) I thought this would be good info. The hardest thing for me to realize when I was diagnosed was how I could be deficient in these nutrients when I took supplements but if you can't absorb them, it does no good. Thankfully, it didn't take me long to heal up after I went gluten-free.

Thanks for the article, very timely for me. Regular blood panels show everything is okay, but I did a spectracell ananysis a couple weeks ago. The doc called with the results yesterday, "No wonder you feel bad" I am unable to metabolize B-12, C, E, and selenium. I begin injections today. I hope this works because the pain and the mental deterioration is both scary and exhausting.
