The Daily Mail article is still having an impact.  Yesterday, Friday, I had a telephone call from a pharmacist.  One of the pharmacist’s patients was showing all the symptoms that Andrea had described in the Mail feature. 

“She’s begging me to change her anti-acid medication but before I can do that I need to speak with her GP.  I know he will want evidence that the medication she is on is depleting her B12 levels” he told me.  “Do you have any evidence that the medication depletes B12?”

I promised to get back to him and immediately visited the forum where, to my dismay, nobody was signed in.  So I Skyped Pat who I knew would be able to help.  Within the hour I was able to email the pharmacist a list of relevant research into this topic.

Well done Pat!!
