What causes vitamin B12 deficiency? There are several different factors that play a role in your ability to absorb adequate B12.
#1 Gluten Sensitivity
#2 Poor Diet choices
#3 Vegetarians are at risk and should have B12 levels checked periodically
#3 Antacids – Acid is a requirement for the absorption of vitamin B12
#4 Diabetes Medications – inhibit vitamin B12
#5 Antibiotics – Meat consumption of antibiotic heavy meats
#6 – Chemotherapy

What I’ve seen happen in a number of people is that they develop what they thought was a diabetic neuropathy, not because they were diabetic, and not because of the blood sugar issue was creating the nerve damage, but because the drug they were taking for so many years was blocking the B-12, creating the Vitamin B-12 deficiency neuropathy.

If you’re eating and picking and choosing the wrong kinds of meats, what’s going to end up happening is you’re getting exposure to antibiotics that can inhibit your Vitamin B-12, and you still end up with a Vitamin B-12 deficiency.

One of the reasons we get Vitamin B-12 deficiency is people that use medications that block stomach acids. Drugs like antacids, Metformin and antibiotics can be seen as being primary causes of Vitamin B-12 deficiency.

If you’re vegetarian, you should definitely be having your B-12 levels checked on a regular basis, at least twice a year, to make sure that you’re getting adequate quantities through supplementation, because biochemically the active form of Vitamin B-12 is only found in animal food.

There are a number of different things that can cause B-12 deficiency, but one of the biggest is poor diet. Knowing that, if you’re eating lots of meat, but the meat that you’re containing has antibiotic in it, that antibiotic could be creating a Vitamin B-12 deficiency.

Over time, a Vitamin B-12 deficiency can cause neuropathy.
