Vitamin B12 Injections from THG

We're the UK's most trusted weight loss & cosmetic surgery provider

Are you receiving symptoms similar to lethargy, faintness and breathlessness? Then this could be a sign that you may need a vitamin B-12 injection. Vitamin B-12 helps your body use fat and carbohydrates for energy and make new protein. It is also important for normal blood, cells and nerves.

So, what are Vitamin B12 injections?

A lack of vitamin B-12 can sometimes cause anaemia. Sometimes, the body is unable to absorb vitamin B-12; this is called pernicious anaemia, this is the most common reason for a vitamin deficiency in the United Kingdom. That is where the vitamin B-12 injection comes in. There are 2 types of vitamin B-12 injections: hydroxocobalamin and cyanocobalamin – with hydroxocobalamin usually being the recommended options due to its ability to stay in the body for longer.

How do I take Vitamin B-12 injections and what results can I expect?

To receive vitamin B-12 injections, you must undertake blood tests to determine the baseline vitamin B-12 levels which are required. The results will assist your nurse in providing the most effective B-12 treatment. A course of vitamin B-12-deficiency treatment then involves regular B-12 injections over a period of 3-5 months – with the dose depending on the patients B12 levels.
