What Are The Side Effects Of B-12 Injections?
Common temporary side effects include pain and/or redness at the injection site, mild diarrhea and itching and sometimes harmless, temporary discoloration of your urine. Most side effects should subside within a few days of treatment. Also, The National Institutes of Health and the Institute of Medicine have determined that “no adverse effects” have been established from excess amounts of B-12 in the body.
Do I Need A B-12 Injection?
Vitamin B-12 is available in many forms including pills and skin patches, so why choose injections over other options? Injections are recommended because only injections guarantee the vitamin will be absorbed and used by the body. Stomach acids will break down B-12 taken orally, limiting the amount of usable B-12 your body will be able to absorb. Also, the benefits of B-12 injections will be higher because very little of the supplement will be wasted.
Am I A Candidate For B-12 Injections?
B-12 is safe to take as a supplement to increase your benefits. B-12 occurs naturally and commonly in many foods. However, B-12 injections ensure you get the right levels of B-12 and that you receive it in the form that your body can most readily absorb and utilize by your body and which will not be broken down through digestion. Your body can also store some B-12 for later use.
How Long Before I Notice Results?
Your B-12 injections give you this valuable supplement in a form your body can readily absorb and use. You should notice the effects of your B-12 injections within two to three days of your treatment, although every patient is different, and it may take your body longer to experience the full results from your treatment. Some patients may need up to four weeks before enjoying the full effects.
How Long Do The Effects Last?
The length of your benefits from B-12 injections will vary from individual to individual. Also, factors like how much you exercise and your daily water intake will affect how long you can expect to enjoy the benefits from the B-12 in your system. Water and exercise can deplete B-12 in the body. Talk to your doctor about these lifestyle factors to determine how often you should return for follow-up B-12 injections.
