Avatar f tn 8 mcg (RDA) *Because 10-30% of older people may not absorb B12 from food very efficiently, it is recommended that those older than 50 years meet their daily requirement mainly through either foods fortified with vitamin B12 or a supplement containing B12. Precautions Because of the potential for side effects and interactions with medications, dietary supplements should be taken only under the supervision of a knowledgeable healthcare provider. Vitamin B12 is considered safe and non-toxic.
Avatar f tn The only abnormalities that came back was a 200pg/ml in B12, SED of 2 mm/hr, and my B6 was in a toxic range. In May of 2009, I was concerned about my weight(~200lbs) so the PA I saw prescribed me with Phentermine(15mg) and Metformin(500mg). They made me jittery, so I stopped after one month. I do not take a multivitamin and I do eat healthy. How am I supposed to cut out B6? I have been taking 2000ug B12 for 5weeks. Every doc I talk to says I probably have MS.
1042487 tn?1275283499 In combination with folic acid and vitamin B12, vitamin B6 lowers homocysteine levels which is an amino acid linked to heart disease and stroke, and possibly other diseases as well, such as osteoporosis, and Alzheimer's disease. Pyridoxine is required for the balancing of hormonal changes in women as well as assisting the immune system and the growth of new cells.
Avatar n tn Hi, Regarding vitamin B6, a water soluble vitamin is essential for the normal and optimal functioning of the body. The Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA) is the average daily dietary intake level that is sufficient to meet the nutrient requirements. RDAs for vitamin B6 (in milligrams), are: 1.3 mg for men and women under age 50; 1.7 mg for men and 1.5 mg for women over the age of 50, 1.9 mg for pregnant women, and 2 mg for women who are breastfeeding.
277836 tn?1359669774 Take a B-complex vitamin supplement that includes folic acid, vitamin B5, vitamin B6 and vitamin B12 to increase testosterone production. These nutrients are important in protein and fat metabolism for the manufacture of this hormone. Eat foods that contain these vitamins, including avocados, eggs, fish and wheat germ. Increase zinc in your diet to raise testosterone levels. Take a daily zinc supplement. Foods like shellfish, prawns and oysters that are high in this mineral.
Avatar n tn i started the vitamin b12/b6/lipo shop and also take a sugar pill and a water pill and an appetite supppressant and can eat 6 small meals a day but only supposed to drink water and tea i have been doing ok with it but instead of it given me energy if actually feel weak and my mouth stays dry but u have to drink plenty of water my shots along with the pills for one week are $59 i have been going for 3 weeks i started out weighing 253lbs and now my weight is 230 but when i took my labs at my docto
Avatar n tn I think they opened a branch in Florida too. I lost 40 pounds in 3 month. And I did get Vitamin B6 and B12 shots 3 times a week. Also, i took potassium pills everyday. The nurses monitor by checking the urine samples to see if my body produces Ketones. The way this diet works is that you have to follow the strict Diet along with the shots(to give yourself energy during the diet). The diet kind of tricks your body to believe that you are starving yourself.
Avatar f tn I just got my lab work back and my vitamin b12 is up from 790 to over 2000 (too high to read) in a matter of six months. I originally had it tested because I was having tingling (paresthesia) in my left side of my back six months ago. It has since worsened, spreading to my face and arm. My vitamin b 1(one) is low now. 6units in plasma. And my vitamin d is also low despite supplementing.
Avatar n tn The MTHFR gene is extremely common and can lead to a problem processing the B Vitamins, making people particularly susceptible to deficiency of B12, folic acid, and Vitamin B6. Ironically, in these cases, Vitamin B6 Levels and Vitamin B12 Levels will be HIGH, despite actually being a DEFICIENCY of these vitamins. This is because the vitamins build up in the bloodstream, where they are measured, but the vitamins can't get into the cells where they are needed.
8976007 tn?1413334250 But balance is also key, as, for example, B12, folate, and B6 need to be in the proper balance to one another for optimal health. I read on another forum that you take a tricyclic antidepressant. If that's true, that also affects things. For example, drugs that affect brain neurotransmitters can affect magnesium levels because they use the same pathway to get to the brain. Tricyclics also commonly cause constipation, so if that's the case it can slow down absorption of nutrients.
Avatar n tn It's most important aspect is the vitamin B12 and B6 injections twice a week. Everyone I know that's done this has had great success and has kept off the weight. It's pricy and inconvenient but what diet is a walk in the park? So this along with the meal plans and etc from this site, I hope I can lose 67 lbs. So here it goes!! I'm going to try to keep a journal of my progress, feelings, ect in the journal section. I'll post more about my "diet" as I learn about it.
Avatar n tn Vitamin B6 (Pyridoxine) Vitamin B6 is a water soluble vitamin and functions as a coenzyme, essential in the breakdown and utilization of carbohydrates, fats, and proteins.
Avatar n tn The twitching is in my left arm, face, and back at different times. The reason I wondered about the B6 and B12 was because my blood showed very high levels of B6 and my B12 was 10,000 (not a typo). I was taking 5000mcg of B12 a day in a pill that dissolves under the tongue and a prenatal vitamin that my OB/GYN put me on a few years ago, even though I wasn't pregnant.
Avatar f tn But I've been combining my foods differently, to improve digestion and nutrient absorption, and it's apparently working really well for vitamin b6:) I'm going to cut back on high b6 foods (mainly potatoes) for a while, and see if that fixes the problem.

Avatar f tn Hi Ashrenmar, I have done a lot of reading on the topic and there are a great number of deficiencies that can contribute to anxiety. B12 is just one. In fact, several B Vitamins play a role in anxiety. Vitamin B6 is required in the synthesis of Serotonin, a stress fighting neurotransmitter. Calcium and Magnesium are also important, as are L-Tryptophan (for Serotonin) and L-Theanine (for GABA). And those are just things your body needs.
Avatar m tn ) Without enough magnesium, and the increased levels of D and B6 I was taking in, the B6 built up and, presto, neuropathy. I have stopped all supplements. I am drinking water like mad. I have been at this for three weeks and feel a bit better but I know it is a long haul. My question is whether people with this issue have found adding magnesium for a period of time makes sense. Frankly, part of me wants to swear off supplements and just eat right, exercise and get some sun (what an idea!!!

Avatar f tn Are you a vegetarian? B12 is only found in red meat and a few other animal foods. How old are you? As you get older, the lining of your stomach gradually loses the ability to produce hydrochloric acid, you need that to absorb B12 from food. Some drugs can also lower your stomach acid secretion. A sublingual (under the tongue) B12 is what you should use. It goes directly into your bloodstream, bypassing your digestive tract is the type to use.

Avatar f tn i've read on the internet that deficiency of vitamin B1 B3 B6 and B12 might make worse the feeling of anxiety and stress. does anyone know if these vitamins will help with this feelings of anxiety and stress?
Avatar f tn • Further avoidance of high B6 containing foods. There are various sites and books that list the B6 content of foods and drinks • No intake of probiotics – they may produce B6 in your guts. Although I am not sure if this is true. I already had stopped antacids since I thought this was connected to diarhea issues I had. Unfortunately I have not discovered a golden bullet to reduce B6. Exercising, water and reduction of B6 intake are the most commonly mentioned strategies.
Avatar n tn (Serum B12 Probability of symptomatic deficiency) High 220 pmol/L Clinically significant B12 deficiency may occur with B12 levels in the normal range, particularly in elderly patients. Ferritin A 8 15-247 ug/L Adults: 100: Iron Deficiency unlikely persistently >600: Test for Iron overload Children: <12: diagnosis of Iron Deficiency
Avatar f tn Keep in mind that B12 needs to be in balance with B6 and folic acid, particularly, so if it were me I'd just forgo the B12 supplement and ignore the rest.
