The NHS recommends that vitamin B12 or folate deficiency anaemia should be recognised and treated as soon as possible since, while many symptoms resolve with therapy, certain difficulties caused by the disorder are permanent if not addressed. According to the Cleveland Clinic, “Vitamin B12 or folate deficient anaemia can induce a variety of symptoms.” These normally appear gradually, but if left untreated, they can worsen.”

According to the Cleveland Clinic, many neurological signs of vitamin B12 insufficiency might include:
  • Tingling or numbness in your hands and feet.
  • Vision issues
  • Having difficulty remembering information or becoming quickly confused.
  • You’re having difficulty walking or speaking normally.

According to the organisation, if neurological disorders occur as a result of vitamin B12 insufficiency, “they may not be curable.”

“It can be difficult to detect vitamin B12 insufficiency since symptoms are not always present or symptoms might be similar to other dietary deficiencies,” it continues.
