Vitamin B Injections: I Am Considering It.
0

10 posts in this topic

I am considering whether vitamin B injections would be right for me. First off, I read that a certain variety of vitamin B is the best. What is it?

Have injections been helpful to you?

I am planning to try sublingual B first. How do I tell it works and continually works. It seems that my vitamins the longer I take them, become intolerable to me. How can I tell the vitamin B injections work. I would like to have more than a subjective measurement as usual.

You might try a holistic doc. The only "B" that I know for sure that allopathic docs inj is B12. Do you have low stomach acid? if you are over 40 it is more likely to not have enough, than to have too much. B12 sublingual, but also on an empty stomach, since most of it is swallowed in the saliva. I have a cast iron stomach, but even I can't do B-complex on an empty stomache. Good luck

I had noticed halves of capsules coming through with powder still inside. I did a nutrient absorbption blood test. I have a vitamin B 12 high need I also need B 6 and B1. .. . It is a catch 22. One needs the vitamins to get the acid for digestion; one needs the acid to get the vitamins. Somehow, I have to break the cycle. . I have developed intolerances to nearly everything I eat I am trying to get a rotational diet going and am currently feeling better. My eyes are blood shot and have blackness under them.. I can't take the vitamins I had been taking because of my intolerance to rice.

Meats, nuts, legumes, vegetables, good fats, tiny bits of fruits and supplements. My variety includes about 50 various elements. I haven't had a sweet treat, besides fruit for 5 years, but for some crystalized ginger occassionally. Desperate people with a natural food bend do desperate things in order to get better like eating healthy.

Hi Diana,

Have you tried Betaine HCL? If you have a stomach acid problem you can take Betaine HCL to help riase the acid level in your stomach.

Hi Diana,

Have you tried Betaine HCL? If you have a stomach acid problem you can take Betaine HCL to help riase the acid level in your stomach.

Thanks, there is some in my supplements. But I did find out that I needed some pancreatic enzymes perhaps that will help.

Hi Diana-

We found - upon recommendation from our holistic doc -- if we take enzymes before meals and Betaine HCL about a half our after the meal (he actually suggested an hour after, but we kept forgetting them) things digest a bit better. Perhaps you could take your supplements during your largest meal sandwiched between enzymes and HCL? It is a tricky thing to find the correct mix on a healing system.

Another thing that can help is to remove ALL supplements for a week and then add one at a time back in at a time - If your supplements are not helping or you are not digesting them - it's time to work on the timing a bit.

If rotation isn't working - perhaps give food combining a read - this can aid digestion.

Good Luck :)

I tried a B-vitamin shot about a month ago. Cocktail of B12, B complex, folic acid, and some other nutrient that begins with "L" (cannot read my doc's handwriting). I did notice a slight improvement in energy (more pep). I also noticed when the shot wore off at about day 8 or day 9, right when my doctor said it would (tired earlier in the day). I am taking occasional B12 sublingual and B-complex tablet (ingest) when I remember to and these seem to help some. Good luck.

Thanks, something seems to be working. I quit eating buckwheat that was cross contaminated, started a rotational diet, began pancreatic enzymes, and got different vitamin B12. Dare I get a little gitty? Not yet.

I now take B-12 injections twice a month...You want your B-12 level to be around 850...mine was under 400 Which by the way is within the ranges but I couldn't function...I do also take multi vits & mins, Vit D & so on. Just some of us only the injection helps...I was doing weekly & may have to go back to weekly injections to keep my level at 850... It's been a month of bi-monthly & my level is only 503

    • Insurance is a pain! But, one of the interesting things about the Affordable Care Act (ObamaCare) is that it set individual out of pocket maximums. This year it is $7100. I realize that it is a HUGE amount of money, but if you started to pursue the work up this year and don't delay, you could get everything done (scope, labs, doc visits) and know the answer in a couple of months.  The most you would pay is $7100 for everything. Most hospitals have payment plans and some offer discounts if you pay cash. It's just a thought, but sometimes getting all your healthcare needs answered at once can relieve a lot of anxiety and be more affordable in the long run. I wish you luck. I hate insurance issues.
    • Hi all, I know this strand is a little old, but I just joined and have a related concern and wanted to express it in the right place. My period has been changing over the past two years or so. I used to be like clockwork, every 28 days. Now they come a little earlier and don't last as long, or they stop and restart, sometimes with some mid-cycle spotting. I've also been fatigued but that could have to do with work (I run my own business and teach on the side). I didn't make any connection with my celiac DX until yesterday when I was reading about peri-menopause. This month I got the heavy feeling in my legs and the sense that it was coming but... it never came. I thought I had a long time before I had to worry about the change! I'm 42. I've never missed a period, even when I was super-anemic. Ugh. Fortunately my mom said she never had any truly uncomfortable symptoms and she (still!) has the bone density of a much younger person. Hopefully I'll have the same experience. My yearly GYN appt. is coming up in July. Should I just wait and see, then say something to my doc then? Thanks in advance for any light you could shed on this.
    • You would think that there is enough people out there, people with celiac disease, that we'd be able to push for a better standard than 20ppm. The problem is the FDA. Too much lobbying involved. It's no different than the fight people are having with Monsanto. I hear that there are several medications that are showing promise in Canada who I think also has a better standard than us.(not positive about that though)
    • Make sure that you ask the doctor how long she has to stop the supplements before you have her levels tested and be sure to take them all with you when you have the appointment so the doctor knows what she is taking.
    • Talk to your doctor. With your family history and symptoms he/she may be able to diagnose based on resolution of your symptoms and family history. Also check with your local hospital if it has it's own lab.  Mine covered any labs at a greatly reduced cost based on a sliding fee scale. Did you have an MRI before they did the spinal? Celiacs with neuro impact will have white spots on an MRI that resemble the lesions found with MS. Many neuro doctors don't know this. I went through what you did and they did a spinal on me also based on the MRI results. If my doctor had know what the UBOs (unidentified bright objects) were I would have been diagnosed a couple years sooner than I was. Make sure if you supplement that you ask your doctor which ones you need to stop taking and for how long before they do a blood test to check levels. Sublingual B12 is a good idea when we have nervous system issues, but needs to be stopped for at least a week for an accurate blood level on testing. I hope you get some answers and feel better soon.
