Giving You Back YOUR Life

Vitamin B12 deficiency Charity Support Group

The B12 Deficiency Support Group (B12d, for short) is a charity. Our aims are to:

  • Raise awareness of this condition amongst doctors and the general public, so that people can be diagnosed appropriately.
  • Explain the signs and symptoms that a doctor or person who is diagnosing themselves should look out for, and how to make sure that you reach the right diagnosis and don't confuse B12 deficiency with something else.
  • Ensure treatment is tailored to the needs of the patient, and where possible, make treatment available free at the point of need.

We rely entirely on donations. Although B12 supplements are funded on NHS, they are only funded for a very narrow group of conditions. We show here and in our audits that a much wider range of conditions can beneficially be treated with Vitamin B12 replacement therapy.

Dr Chandy (Kayalackakom)

Dr Chandy has been an NHS GP in Horden, County Durham, United Kingdom for 40years and during that time has amassed a wealth of experience.

When people came with tiredness and unexplained neurological symptoms, Dr Chandy began to suspect something more and tested these people for the amount of vitamin B12 they had in their bloodstream.

Many many people have now benefited from vitamin B12 replacement therapy for a variety of conditions which you can find out about by exploring this site.
