    Default Misdiagnosis of B12 deficiency

    There's a vegan on a mission to expose misdiagnoses of b12 deficiency as he is now suffering neurological problems. He is working on a website you may find of interest:

    Very interesting! Have you corresponded with Golding at all?

    Thanks!

    Hi, since the person with the misdiagnosis isn't a vegan, and his site is about misdiagnosis in general, and not vegan specific info, I made a new tread out of these posts....

    ps: treaclemine, no I don't know, nor have I corresponded with, Golding.

    And sorry, Korn, I wrongly assumed he was vegan, but thought that the topic was of interest anyway.

    Incidentally I had a PM from Paul Golding and he did mention that if anyone here wanted to contact him, he would welcome that. His url is indicated above.

    Eve - thanks so much for that link! I just got off the phone with my boyfriend, and have suggested he ask his mother's doctor to test her for B12 deficiency. She is elderly, and suffering from several of the symptoms, including dementia. It may not be a result of B12 deficiency, but if she is B12 deficient, it could certainly be speeding the process along.

    Yes, I'm at the Mary Cairncross Scenic Reserve, just near Maleny on the Sunshine Coast hinterland.

    Hi,
    Here's a discussion at another forum (not a vegan forum) about the same topic:

    Thanks Korn. That's a really long thread - I haven't read through the whole thing, but I'll be showing it to my boyfriend who will be discussing the matter with his mothers nurse this week.
