For those who feel as if they have no energy to function as a result of a strong prescription drug or a stringent weight loss plan, vitamin B12 often provides the help they need to continue on their path to wellness. At World Wellness Health Institute, board-certified physician Dr. Daniel Lebowitz treats patients with B12 injections to restore energy, as well as achieve and maintain optimal wellness.
What are Vitamin B12 Injections?
Vitamin B12 is a vitamin that is vital to the body’s nerve cells and red blood cells. It also makes DNA and helps iron to function properly. Another function of B12 is that it works with folate to produce the amino acid SAMe which controls mood and supports immune function. Vitamin B12 injections are often prescribed as a support to people who suffer from weakness, tiredness, and other neurological issues as a result of chemotherapy, strict weight loss plans or conditions such as chronic fatigue syndrome, as it gives them energy and helps them function in their day to day lives.
The usual symptoms of vitamin B12 deficiency are:
- Poor memory
- Lack of energy
- Sleep disruption
Benefits of Vitamin B12 Injections
Vitamin B12 is often suggested as a treatment for people who lack energy due to weight loss plans that feature significant calorie deficits, as well as those who may be suffering from the effects of chemotherapy. Vitamin B12 provides other important benefits including:
- Decrease in mood swings
- Improvement in overall demeanor
- Helps the body metabolize fat
- Improvement in cognitive functions
- Reduced risk of stroke or heart disease
- Enhancement in circulatory system
How Do Vitamin B12 Injections Work?
Vitamin B12 injections are performed by injecting the vitamin into a muscle or under the skin. From there, the vitamin is released over time to provide the necessary benefits to each patient. Depending on the circumstances, the injections may be performed several times a week for a set number of weeks then tapered back in terms of dosage and frequency, all to be determined by Dr. Lebowitz. Some people may require periodic injections for the rest of their lives. Once vitamin B12 levels return to normal, the injections may be used only when needed.
Vitamin B12 Injection Preparation
Vitamin B12 injections require an evaluation by Dr. Lebowitz to review your overall health and medical history. He also discusses the current symptoms and may order blood work to address any underlying conditions or make sure there is nothing else that may conflict with your vitamin B12 injections.
Vitamin B12 Injection Results
Vitamin B12 injections are injected into the muscle and take time to release into the system. Many patients report that they feel better immediately and continue to improve over time. Some patients require repeated treatments while others only require them when they feel their symptoms returning. It is essential to maintain this therapy, so establishing a plan with Dr. Lebowitz is necessary.
How Much Do Vitamin B12 Injections Cost?
The cost of vitamin B12 injections varies with each patient based on the dosage, as well as the frequency of the injections and if they are combined with other treatments. We can discuss the cost with you during your consultation with Dr. Lebowitz. At that time, we can also go over payment options and financing through CareCredit®.
Are Vitamin B12 Injections Right for Me?
Vitamin B12 injections are right for you first and foremost if you have a definitive vitamin B12 deficiency or if you suffer any of the symptoms, such as chronic fatigue, weakness, and memory issues. Also, if you are undergoing chemotherapy or other medical treatment that depletes your energy or have started a strict weight loss plan, you may want to consider vitamin B12 injections.
Vitamin B12 Injections Consultation
Prior to receiving vitamin B12 injections, it is necessary to schedule a complimentary consultation with Dr. Lebowitz so that he can evaluate your current overall health and family history. He may also require blood work to determine if you are vitamin B12 deficient. Once he determines that vitamin B12 may provide relief and even correct the issues, he will work with you to customize a plan for the injections. If you have any questions about this therapy or any other treatments at World Wellness Health Institute, Dr. Lebowitz will discuss those during your consultation as well.
