FAQs

What is vitamin B12?

Being a micronutrient, vitamin B12 is required by the body in small amounts or levels. Since vitamin B12 is a part of the B complex of vitamins, it is water-soluble and needed for various functions, such as tissue repairing, DNA replication, etc. Foods rich in vitamin 12 include meat, fish, milk, poultry, yogurt, eggs, enriched or fortified cereals, bread, etc. Supplements can also be taken for the same.
Deficiency or lack of vitamin 12 in the body causes macrocytic anemia, which refers to the condition in which the size of the red blood cells becomes larger than normal.

Megaloblastic anemia, a type of macrocytic anemia, leads to the production of large red blood cells in lower amounts. Moreover, the white blood cells and platelets that are produced are also present in lower than normal levels.

Pernicious anemia, also known as Addison’s anemia, occurs when the intestine is unable to absorb sufficient amounts of vitamin B12 due to a deficiency of intrinsic factors produced by the parietal cells. It is also characterized by a decrease in the number of red blood cells.

Ms Sujata arrived on time and was very polite and caring throughout the process. Actually there was a mistake on my part where I couldn't attend her calls because I was not well and i feel asleep bcoz of my medicines. I had scheduled an appointment for my mother but Ms Sujata somehow reached my address by asking my neighbours. Such a lovely girl, and also the collection process was really smooth. Would absolutely recommend everyone to check out their services
