B12 Injections for Nerve Damage
The human body requires vitamin B12 to work properly. Vitamin B12 can be found mostly in meat, fish and dairy products. Vitamin B12 supplements are typically taken orally to treat and prevent vitamin B12 deficiency and pernicious anemia, a serious type caused by vitamin B12 deficiency and found mostly in older people.
People also take B12 for memory loss, Alzheimer's disease, anti-aging, and to boost concentration, mood, energy and immune function. B12 is also used to treat heart disease, clogged arteries, high triglyceride levels, high homocysteine (a hormone that may contribute to heart disease), male infertility, diabetes, diabetic nerve damage and nerve damage in the hands or feet. Some people use vitamin B12 for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (Lou Gehrig's disease) and multiple sclerosis.
We inject Vitamin B12 to treat a nervous system disorder called myelopathy. It is also used to treat tremors, Imerslund-Grasbeck disease, nerve damage caused by shingles, diabetic nerve damage, fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome. Ask Dr. Gonzales-Portillo how vitamin B12 injections might help your condition.
