People with pernicious anemia, vegetarians and vegans, patients with gastrointestinal surgery, weight loss surgery, celiac disease, Crohn’s disease, are also highly recommended to receive vitamin B12 injections.
Absorption of Vitamin B12 naturally requires a full functioning stomach, pancreas, intrinsic factor and small bowel.
