Vitamin B12 

Vitamin B12 (commonly called folate) deficiency anaemia occurs when a lack of Vitamin B12 or folate causes the body to produce abonormally large red blood cells that can't functiin properly. Vitamin B12 deficiency anaemia is usually treated with injections of vitamin B12, in a form called hydroxocobalamin.

At first you'll have these injections every other day for two weeks, or until your symptoms have started improving. Your GP or nurse will give the injections.

After this initial perdiod, your treatment will depend on whether the cause of your vitamin B12 deficiency is related to your diet. The most common cause of vitamin B12 deficiency in the UK is pernicious anaemia, which isn't related to your diet.
