What Are Causes of Pernicious Anemia?
When we ingest vitamin B12, it binds to a substance in the stomach called “intrinsic factor” before our body absorbs and uses it. If our body can’t produce intrinsic factors, it leads to a vitamin B12-deficiency anaemia known as “pernicious anaemia.”
If our storage of vitamin B12 is below normal, our nervous system can’t function properly. we might experience symptoms such as shaky movements, unsteadiness, muscle weakness, spasticity, incontinence, low blood pressure, vision problems, dementia, psychoses and mood swings.
