Vitamin B12 deficiency: ‘Psychological problems’ – doctors warn it may be a sign

1 min read

However, if the stomach cells are under attack, and can no longer create intrinsic factor, then vitamin B12 is lost.

Instead of being reabsorbed in the gut, like it’s supposed to be, vitamin B12 travels from the stomach to the gut, out through a person’s back passage.

This means no matter how many foods you eat containing vitamin B12, the body isn’t storing the vitamin it needs.

As a result, red blood cells aren’t formed properly, leading to symptoms of anaemia, and psychological problems if the malabsorption continues without treatment.
