Vitamin B12 - Edgeley Pharmacy Bloom Street

Vitamin B12 deficiency can cause a range of symptoms such tiredness, shortness of breath, dizziness, numbness or tingling in the hands and feet, mental confusion or forgetfulness as well as other symptoms. These symptoms tend to develop gradually however they can worsen if left untreated.

Vitamin B12 is an essential water soluble vitamin which is needed for the formation of red blood cells as well as the nervous system.

The best food sources for vitamin B12 are meat and dairy products. This causes a problem for those on a Vegan diet as it makes it more difficult for them to obtain it through their diet.

Vitamin B12 is an injection administered into the arm. This injection can be given safely by a trained healthcare professional and helps combat the effects of vitamin B12 deficiency. As vitamin B12 is water soluble any excess is excreted through the urine and it can safely be given every 3 months.

You are now able to obtain this injection at the pharmacy. The cost for the service is £25 and the appointments last around 15 to 20 minutes. You can book online or by calling the pharmacy.
