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.
