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!!
