Vitamin B12 deficiency: Do you experience this problem when swallowing? Warning sign

Dysphagia is the medical term for swallowing difficulties.

As the NHS explains, some people with dysphagia have problems swallowing certain foods or liquids, while others can’t swallow at all.

Over time, dysphagia can also cause symptoms such as weight loss and repeated chest infections, notes the health body.

In fact, this symptom progression was identified in the case report published in eNS.

There are two types of vitamin B12 injections:

  • Hydroxocobalamin
  • Cyanocobalamin

“If your vitamin B12 deficiency is caused by a lack of the vitamin in your diet, you may be prescribed vitamin B12 tablets to take every day between meals,” explains the NHS.

According to the health body, people who find it difficult to get enough vitamin B12 in their diets, such as those following a vegan diet, may need vitamin B12 tablets for life.

It adds: “Although it’s less common, people with vitamin B12 deficiency caused by a prolonged poor diet may be advised to stop taking the tablets once their vitamin B12 levels have returned to normal and their diet has improved.”
