Publisher Description

Presenting a wide scope of problems caused by B12 deficiency, this comprehensive guide provides up-to-date medical information about symptoms, testing, diagnosis, and treatment. Written for both the patient and the interested layperson, this detailed book outlines how physicians frequently misdiagnose B12 deficiency as Alzheimer's disease, multiple sclerosis, heart disease, mental retardation, Parkinson's disease, depression, or other mental illnesses. Now in the second edition, this resource has been thoroughly updated with the latest research, diagnostic tests, treatment options, case studies, and testimonials.

An important, highly recommended contribution." --Bernard Rimland, PhD, director, Autism Research Institute "Sally Pacholok and Jeffrey Stuart are to be congratulated for calling attention to this common disorder that affects a significant proportion of the population, particularly among the elderly. . . .

As a result of reading this book, I now routinely test serum B12 and Urinary MMA on ALL patients, and have been surprised to find many symptomatic B12-deficient patients completely missed by the medical system." --Jeffrey Dach, MD "I defy you to read this book then not get yourself or a loved one tested for B12 deficiency." --Eric Norman, PhD, developer, the UMMA test for B12 deficiency, and founder, the first commercial laboratory to provide UMMA testing ""Could it be B12?" has literally saved lives and is the only complete and authoritative guide to B12 deficiency and shows what you can do to protect yourself and your family from this crippling disorder." --"Senior Beacon" "In this long-needed book, Pacholok and Stuart expose a major health-care scandal . . . .

While taking B12 won't cure everything, it may just be the answer you're looking for!" -- "The most important book I have read in decades. . . . Clearly, concisely and convincingly calls our attention to a condition that exists in epidemic numbers. This book is a must read for all doctors." --"American Chiropractor" (November 2012) "If you or your loved ones have health issues you can't get a handle on or you've been diagnosed for something and the standard treatment doesn't seem to work, then I say definitely pick this book up." -- "Could it be B12?" has literally saved lives and is the only complete and authoritative guide to B12 deficiency and shows what you can do to protect yourself and your family from this crippling disorder. --Senior Beacon If you or your loved ones have health issues you can't get a handle on or you've been diagnosed for something and the standard treatment doesn't seem to work, then I say definitely pick this book up. -- The most important book I have read in decades ... clearly, concisely and convincingly calls our attention to a condition that exists in epidemic numbers.
