Vitamin B12 Deficiency

Louise_WebMD_Staff posted:
Tired? Tingle in your toes? People with IBD can easily have a B12 deficiency. Not only that--but taking a multivitamin doesn't usually work to alleviate it in people with IBD. Instead, you will likely need a sublingual (under the tongue), nasal form, or injection of B12.

Learn more about B12 deficiency and check with your doctor to see about whether this can be the cause of some of your symptoms. (It can also cause diarrhea!)
