B12 deficiency: a silent epidemic with serious consequences
================================================

B12 deficiency and unsteadiness

Timothy c. Hain, md page last modified: december 19, 2014

Vitamin b12 deficiency is common in the population over 80 (about 10%). It can be a cause of unsteady gait (ataxia), sometimes accompanied by anemia (macrocytic), and loss of position sense. When associated with spinal cord disease, it is sometimes termed" subacute combined degeneration. The ataxia is called a" sensory ataxia, because it appears to be related to loss of position sensation from the feet. A list of diseases that can present with a similar picture is given below:

Subacute combined degeneration (b12 deficiency)
Tabes dorsalis (neurosyphilis)
Fredreich' ataxia (a cerebellar disorder), with damage with sensory input to the cerebellum.
Peripheral neuropathy (common)
Thoracic spinal cord lesions (very rare)
Subacute sensory loss (a rare paraneoplastic syndrome).
The term subacute combined degeneration was coined by russell, batten and collier in 1900 to describe pathological changes in the spinal cord. While changes in the posterior columns are emphasized in clinical accounts, pathologically the lateral and anterior columns are also often affected. The peripheral nerves are generally unaffected. B12 deficiency is a risk factor for cognitive decline (i. E. Dementia)

Causes of b12 deficiency

Decreased intake (e. G. Vegetarians)
Malabsorption
Autoimmune (pernicious anemia)
Stomach and small bowel disorders (e. G. Gastritis, surgery)
Medication interaction (e. G. Metformin, medications that reduce stomach acidity)
Over consumption (blind loop)
B12 is available only from animal sources and thus strict vegetarians are at a risk of deficiency. B12 is bound to animal protein and released by gastric acid. When taken as part of food, b12 is released from food by a combination of gastric acid and pepsin (an enzyme).

A medication for diabetes, metformin, reduces absorption of b12.

Gastric conditions contributing to b12 deficiency include various stomach diseases that impair release of b12 from food

Pernicious anemia (pa) accounts for 15-70% of b12 deficiency. This an autoimmune disorder where antibodies are made to intrinsic factor. Oral supplements are less effective in pa than other modes of administration.

Diagnosis of b12 deficiency

B12 deficiency is usually detected through a b12 blood level. Typical lower limits of normal are 200 pg/ml. A cbc test may show macrocytic anemia.

Because b12 is stored in the liver, it takes about 2 years following a sudden cessation of intake for signs of deficiency to arise.

Treatment of b12 deficiency

There are presently a variety of options.

Oral therapy involves giving 1 to 2 mg (1000 mcg) of b12 daily. Oral therapy is usually as effective as the others noted below
Monthly injections of b12 are traditional. The first injection is generally 1000ug, and subsequent ones are 100.
Nasal b12 is also now available as an alternative to injection in persons who do not respond to oral therapy.

Hello doctor I'm suffering from foul smell from my legs whenever I wear shoes. please help me how can I get rid from this foul smell.

PDDM, MHA, MBBS
General Physician, Nashik
Whenever you come from outside, you get dirt and bacteria along. Do not mistake to think that shoes have protected your feet from such bacteria. Wash your feet immediately after entering home. Make it the first task after you reach home. Use lukewarm water to keep your feet and toenails clean. This kills the bacteria. You can also use apple cider vinegar to clean the toenails and prevent fungus naturally.

This is very normal and let's talk about why.  Ejaculate (the stuff that comes out when a man ejaculates) is made up of a lot of different things.  One of it's components is sperm.  In a normal male ejaculate, there are anywhere between 20 and 400 million sperm.  All you need to get pregnant is one.  What normally happens after intercourse, is that a lot of the ejaculate does leak out.  Some of it, however, remains in the back of the vagina (in the posterior fornix) and an even smaller amount makes it's way up through the cervix, into the uterus and down the fallopian tubes.  It is here, in the fallopian tubes, that the sperm and egg meet.  So, the bottom line is that you don't need to lie in bed with your legs up after intercourse to get pregnant and the fact that semen is leaking out afterwards, doesn't decrease your chances of conceiving. Recommend me if you are satisfied with answer.

Hello lybrate-user, in type 1 diabetes, insulin is the only line of management. Some newer drug are approved by FDA but they are add-on to your insulin and efficacy wise these drugs are not effective as single therapy but insulin can't be substituted.
