Need Advice And Suggestions

Recommended Posts

Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa

Waheguru Ji Kee Fateh!

Please forgive my ignorance in advance as I am just seeking advice and not really promoting something.

Daas became vegetarian 8 years ago due to having issuing with some personal family matter. During this path for 8 years daas has been very healthy but due to busyness (babies and work) of my life daas was not able to follow daily workout routine which was okay as daas remained healthy until the last few years. Daas felt very tired, low, depressed and lazy. Even though I tried to workout but no luck so after family pushing to go to the doctors to get checked, daas was diagnosed with very low b12 levels, I mean very low levels, now daas need to get b12 shots every month, but those dont help either, and if missed daas gets very low with everything in life causing fmaily members stress due to worry.

Did some research on lack of b12 and what could happen in the future:

Doctor agreed as well and said my current diet is not sufficient have to take shots.

Daas is not amritdhari but is shejdhari, on a path to be amritdhari in the future, so daas approached a close friend who happens to be a Nihang Singh (very blessed) who suggested to eat eggs and doctor said it would help as well,

Not sure if this is the right move but after reseraching this forum daas ran into this thread as well:

Any advice can help, thanks

Sorry again if daas said anything to upset anyone.

Paji, are you under a dietician/nutritionist?

If not, ask your doctor to refer you, and tell them you are vegetarian. They will guide you on what you can eat for your B12 deficiency.

The above article you have posted, says B12 deficiency can mimick those health conditions. It does not mean you will get them. Mimick means symptoms that are similar or same.

It's a good idea to get your B12 checked regularly as the doctor advises, to make sure the levels are increasing to the required level.

Also, have they checked your Vitamin D3? These two are normally not tested, and have to be requested by the doctor or patient, if one is residing in the UK.

You have not upset anybody, it's good to ask, otherwise you won't get knowledge on self management of your health. The best thing is to go by your doctors advise, as its your health and well being that needs to be looked after.

Cows milk is on par with eggs in terms of nutrient density. With dhai being slightly less. So dodh and dhai are good sources of vit. b12.

However i will point out fish is king when it comes to needing vitamin b12, it blows eggs, milk and yoghurt out of the water.

agreed you sound more like someone suffering from adrenal fatigue ...b12 is not going to touch it ... you need proper investigation in specialist hospital department. If you have pernicious anaemia that means your gut is damaged and needs healing not just getting injections of b12.

    • If your minority in India your f#### and if you are minority in Pakistan you are f###. They both mirror to each other...then again thats why they were created for Muslims and Hindus..India f#### up situation today is their doing. Sikhs are the ones who been affected the most yet its always about Hindus and Muslims.. Wanting Khalistan should also include Pakistan side which belongs to Sikhs...what do you think? Pakistan will never give back our Sikh land? I also find it crazy with how many Islamic countries there are and Saudi Arabia being the birthplace for Islam , yet you'd still want 'Free Palestine' Free 'Kashmir'...Kashmir makes no difference to us..either its hinduvsta takeover or islamist takeover Kashmir ..but regardless why constantly play victim..? Arab colonization did plenty damage...just like British UAE i think is best and only Islamic country to live with lot Indians reside there, but only if your super rich lol
    • See @MuslimNeighbour idk what are u doing on our forum. Over that ur crying that 3hitty islamaphobic on real stuff. And instead of answering the question abt ur 7th century cult ur attacking our religion. U feel ur a pakka muslim answer my questions 1) Why did muhammad marry a 6 year old and had s3x with her when she was 9 ?  2) Why does ur cult say that if someone leaves it he should be killed ? 3) Why does ur cult say kill all pagans 4) Why does ur cult say a man can have 4 wives and beat up all of them while women cant have 4 husbands and cant beat up her man ? 5) U say quran is perfect preservation but one of the most respected muslim scholar and companion of muhammad ubayy ibn kaab say that no one should say that i have memorized the entire quran as more than 200 verses have been lost just from one chapter ?  stop doing taqqiya brother, we all know that muslims like u and ur dawah gang openly in front of everyone perform taqqiya.   
    • Wow the first post of your towards me without aggression, congrats. I can't speak for Afghanistan but how are the Sikhs being brainwashed in Pakistan? I would argue a Sikh living in the Gulf countries has a better chance of sticking to their faith and living a higher quality of life with the exception of those poor labourers.
    • Once again you failed or deliberately ignore the fact that a ruler whether Muslim or not can commit crimes for their ambitions of wordly matters. Muslim rulers fighting against and killing other Muslim rulers debunks what you said and supports my stance. If you're told to either convert, pay jizya or die then accept the consequences of not paying a small tax fee which exempts you from military draft and gives your places of worship protection. Of course you can go on to become a 'Shaheed' for your cause, Muslim term once again used by Sikhs. So in your opinion a Sikh being attacked for being mistaken as a Muslim isn't Islamophobia? The term 'Islamophobe/ia' isn't good or correct but you get the context in which I'm using it. I don't hate guys, just disagree with their sexual orientation and despise the act. Had your Hindu Dharmic ancestors been circumcised you would be also but because Sikhi is literally 'What does Islam say, Muslims do? Let's do the complete opposite', you kept your ant eaters.
