I was diagnosed with Vit B12 deficiency about six weeks ago by my new doctor who is a Family Practice physician in large HMO. I am very grateful, as replacement injections have already made big positive changes in my life. That bit of personal information is just to let you know that I appreciate the seriousness of this condition and also want to help make others aware.

That said, I found this book to be extremely repetitive and written as though the author were addressing children. It abounds with misspellings, syntax errors and poor organization. Although I'm a medical professional and have done a lot of research on B12 deficiency since my diagnosis, one does not have to understand a great deal of scientific information in order to benefit from well-researched and written medical articles and papers.

I'd like to suggest that those wanting and/or needing accurate information on this subject go online and search: "Why Vitamin B12 Deficiency Should be on Your Radar Screen." It is from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and is aimed at healthcare providers, but is lay-reader-friendly. Ignore the top part and scroll down a bit. I don't think you'll be sorry you checked it out.

And I'd like to suggest to the author and editor that if they are going to write books geared toward readers who speak English they will gain more credibility if they re-edit their book and at least check spelling.

Rated three stars as I did find some references that appear promising.

This is a fairly basic book on vitamin B12 deficiency, which I feel is something people need to be aware of. However, there sometimes replacement vitamin B12 is counter indicated, and that is really not discussed in this book, which is why I took off one star.

None the less, the Dr. Ghazanfar does discuss many different types or B12 supplements, which I really think helps make this book valuable. These include injections, patches, tablets, sublingual tablets and sprays of B12.

In the past I had a B12 deficiency, and the shots straightened me up very quickly.
This is a good book to get an insight into this and I recommend it, especially as it is free now.

As someone who has B12 deficiency, I was very intrigued by why the supplements don't seem to be doing any good but the shots really helped me. It turns out, there are all sorts of types of supplements and they are not all created equally. My doctor who actually had the lab test results in hand and told me I was deficient would not give me the shots, so you really have to fight to get them unfortunately. And I was ridiculously deficient, not just by the author's proposed new standards. I was well below the threshold for the currently accepted low value. This book helps explain why you should continue to fight however.

This author talks down to us like we are just ignorant fools, or like we are children, unable to understand anything of depth. She often talks in stupid sounding ‘dramatic’ sentences, such as ending her sentences with “Oh my!” or something similarly dramatic. I quickly came to hate her style of speaking!

She constantly repeats the same information - on the level that - even she - comments that, “she has said the same thing many times already”. But, yet she continues on repeating the same information again and again. It really feels like her extreme repetition of the same information serves as ‘filler’ to make her book longer, when, in reality, there is not much information that would require this book to be much beyond about 30 pages.

There actually is some really good information in this book, but she gives it in such a poor manner as to make it feel scattered and uninformative. Perhaps that is because she seems ‘scattered’ herself, thus her constant need to ‘repeat herself’. How this woman is a doctor is beyond me. She can’t even spell worth a darn!

I just ordered Could It Be B12?: An Epidemic of Misdiagnoses Paperback – January 26, 2011. I paid $12.00 but it has 77 stars, with over-all rating of 4 1/2 stars. I think it will definitely be worth the extra price.

I picked up this book to study how B-12 would affect me, a fitness freak. While this book is a simple read, there are points about this "disease" that are downright unsexy. This book gets takes the nitty-gritty details and breaks it down into laymen's speech.

Frankly, this disorder is so terrifying, I wish the book would hype it up a little more. But there is no hype, only facts.

What really struck me is how many autoimmune disorders, pins-and-needles sensations, depression and fatigue are likely linked to deficiencies of this vitamin. Many of us who would think "there's no way I could have a B12 deficiency" may be at more risk than we think because of the way the body digests and extracts it from foods.

Definitely worth the read.

We have had some of these symptoms in our family for too many years without any doctor making the correct diagnoses. My daughter has suffered greatly for over 10 years, going from one doctor to another . Being highly educated and intelligent she began searching for answers on her own. Beginning to see a pattern she insisted on blood tests recommended by doctors in the material she had found. Not always easy to attain. But she persisted and finally her symptoms came together and she is now using B12 and feels she is on the road to recovery. Thank You God and all those who have contributed to sharing this important information.
