Having a B12 deficiency can lead to several different health problems if left untreated. One of the most glaring was how treatment helped eased the severity of the migraine headaches I was having. I know several elderly patients who receive B12 injections or take supplements but I had no idea that so many are deficient. I was also surprised by the number of symptoms that are common with this deficiency since the one I hear of the most is feeling exhausted. There is also a short video by Dr. Axe that shares the most common symptoms of a B12 deficiency.
In this article by Katrina Turrill, she shares what you need to know and also foods that increase your B12 levels.
Do you spend too much on prescriptions? Did you know that 1 in 4 Americans say it’s difficult to pay for their medications? If you are one that has trouble paying for those prescriptions, I may have some good news for you.
In the following article by Jon Chrisos, an investigative and consumer reporter at CBS 13 in Portland, he shares how to save money on prescriptions. He has examples, how you can do this and shares the restrictions. So, if you need to save some money, you really should check this out.
FYI: There are also several sites on line that offer discounts on medications. I found one that I am going to use for my B12 injections, since my insurance doesn’t cover them.
Have a great week!
