Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

I have vitamin B12 and vitamin D deficiency.

Kindly help.

Answered by Dr. Nagaraj

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I can understand your concern.

What made you do the test for vitamin levels? You have only mentioned deficiency. Can you send me the blood reports to help you better?

Thanks.

Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

Thanks for the reply.

I have symptoms like laziness, tiredness, muscle weakness, and numbness. I consulted a doctor for these issues, and he advised me to check my vitamin levels.

Thanks.

Hello,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

I think you missed attaching the reports. The symptoms that you have mentioned are typical of vitamin deficiency. However, I would like to see your hemoglobin level and thyroid profile, as these deficiencies can also manifest similar symptoms. I suggest you take multivitamins and vitamin D supplements to improve your symptoms. And I would recommend you to do a CBC (complete blood count), thyroid profile, serum electrolytes, vitamin D and vitamin B12 levels, serum calcium, HbA1c (glycated hemoglobin) to rule out the cause.

Kindly revert after one week with the reports.

I hope this helps.

Take care.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
