A B12 deficiency often goes undiagnosed.
That’s because the symptoms of Vitamin B12 deficiency can look like a variety of neurological conditions like depression, neuropathy, numbness/tingling, developmental disabilities, balance problems, multiple sclerosis, fatigue, and even early Parkinson’s disease and dementia.

In an easy to understand way, they detail how it can be easily tested for (which tests to have done and acceptable reference ranges) and how it can be cured with a vitamin treatment, especially when caught early.
