Vitamin B12 deficiency develops when your body is not able to absorb this vitamin.
Vitamin B12 deficiency can be caused by medications, stomach or bowel surgery, and certain diseases
Sometimes vitamin B12 deficiency occurs in strict vegetarians and people who eat less meat, eggs or milk
In older people, the most common cause of vitamin B12 deficiency is when their bodies do not make enough acidic gastric juice to release the B12 from the food you eat. This is known as achlorhydria
Folate deficiency is often caused by an unbalanced diet that does not include enough fresh fruits and green, leafy vegetables.
Other common causes of folate deficiency are pregnancy, breastfeeding, alcohol abuse, and growth spurts
With folate and vitamin B12 deficiency, anemia often causes symptoms such as fatigue, poor appetite, weight loss, and diarrhea
The earliest symptoms of vitamin B12 deficiency may be weakness, poor coordination, and numbness or a “pins and needles” feeling in the hands and feet. Mild irritability and forgetfulness are other early signs
A severe untreated deficiency can result in serious damage to the nerves, spinal cord, and brain
Ferritin: Normal levels 18 to 160 mg/dl
Hct: Normal 36% to 48%. A value of 27.3% means the mass of the RBCs is low.
Hgb: Normal 12 to 16 g/dl. A value of 8.3 g/dl means the heme, or oxygen-carrying capacity of the RBC, is low
MCV: Normal 82 to 98 cmm. A value of 31.6 cmm means the RBCs are small—hence the name microcytic anemia
RDW: Normal 11.5% to 14.5 %. RDW refl ects the size of the individual RBCs compared to one another. A value of 15.6% means the cells are large and defi cient in iron. This is helpful in distinguishing anemia of chronic disease from iron defi ciency anemia.
Fe: Normal 65 to 165 mcg/dl. An iron value of 30 mcg/dl indicates iron defi ciency.
Ferritin: Normal 18 to 160 mg/dl. Ferritin is more specifi c and sensitive than the iron level. A low level indicates iron defi ciency anemia
Anemia is a deficiency in Number of erythrocytes (red blood cells or RBC’s) Quantity of hemoglobin Volume of packed RBC’s (hematocrit)
anemia causes Impaired production of erythrocytes (Hypoproliferative) ↑ Destruction of erythrocytes (Hemolytic) Blood Loss (acute or chronic
