Varies TYPE OF PROCEDURE
Did you know that a vitamin B-12 deficiency can cause a range of symptoms that affect your quality of life? B-12 injections are a great way to ensure that your body has enough of this key nutrient. At SurgiCare Arts & Aesthetics, Angelina Postoev, MD, FACS, a triple board-certified plastic surgeon, and Christopher Ibikunle, MD, FACS, offer B-12 injections for men and women in Lawrenceville, Suwanee, Johns Creek, and the surrounding areas of Georgia.
What are B-12 Injections?
Vitamin B-12 is one of the most common nutrient deficiencies, making B-12 injections crucial to mitigate deficiency symptoms including fatigue, weakness, low concentration, and mood swings. B-12 is also a vital nutrient essential to several cellular processes in the body, as it helps create DNA and red blood cells, keeps nerve cells healthy, and helps fight diseases.
Because our bodies alone don’t make B-12, consumption of animal-based foods, dairy products, and fish is necessary. It is also available in fortified grains like breakfast cereals, as well as soy products. For people who don’t eat these types of food or who have gone through weight loss surgery, deficiency of B-12 is expected, and supplements may not help enough. However, those with particular diets or who have undergone weigh loss surgery aren’t alone. Many people are deficient in vitamin B-12, and with age, it becomes harder for bodies to absorb it – explaining why fatigued and inexplicable aches and pains are common complaints.
