VITAMIN B12

Vitamin B12 is a water-soluble vitamin that plays an important role in brain function and red blood cell production.

The recommended daily intake (RDI) of vitamin B12 is 6 micrograms per day, and is only found naturally in animal foods.

Deficiency is common, especially in people who follow a vegetarian or vegan diet.

In fact, it’s thought that up to 90% of people following these diets have a deficiency. Even some meat eaters don’t absorb it very well; the ability to absorb vitamin B12 can decrease with age.

Low blood levels of the vitamin have been linked to several health problems:

  1. Brain Function: Low levels of vitamin B12 have been linked to a decline in brain function including dementia.
  2. Depression: It’s been suggested that there may be a link between low vitamin B12 levels and depression. It has been suggested that taking the vitamin on a long-term basis could help prevent a relapse into depression.
  3. Osteoporosis: Osteoporosis is a disease in which the loss of bone mass results in weaker bones and an increased risk of bone fractures. Interestingly, low blood levels of vitamin B12 have been linked with reduced bone mass.
  4. Age-Related Macular Degeneration: Age-related macular degeneration is a condition that causes you to gradually lose central vision, usually in both eyes. B12 is thought to be important for maintaining good vision and protecting against macular degeneration.
  5. Weight and fatigue: Vitamin B12 injections are very popular among healthy people who don’t appear to have a deficiency. Advocates of this approach claim that regular injections can boost energy levels and help with weight loss and mood.

Also known as Triamcinolone acetonide. It is a Corticosteroid injection, which is used for prevention and treatment of scars, including keloids and hypertrophic scars. It is considered the the first-line option to help flatten and decrease their appearance, lighten, and reduce the rate of recurrence.

Scarring may occur secondary to any injury including insect bites, vaccinations, skin piercings, and tattoos, to more severe injuries, including burns, cuts, and surgery.

The injection is directly into the scar (intralesional), and work to suppress inflammation and mitosis while increasing vasoconstriction in the scar.

A course is required every 6 weeks.
