Vitamin B12 Injection Q & A

What is vitamin B12?

Vitamin B12 is an essential nutrient, which means your body can’t produce it, and you must get it from outside sources. The vitamin plays a vital role in the production of red blood cells, DNA synthesis, and neurological function. 

Vitamin B12 is naturally in animal food products, such as beef, pork, poultry, seafood, and dairy. If you’re a vegetarian or vegan, then it’s possible you may not be meeting your daily vitamin B12 needs. Additionally, in order for your body to absorb vitamin B12 from the food you eat, you need an adequate amount of stomach acid and a special protein called intrinsic factor. 

How do I know if I need a vitamin B12 injection?

The experienced team at Grace Family Medicine Direct Primary Care of Wellington can determine if you would benefit from a vitamin B12 injection during an evaluation. Because of the direct primary care model at Grace Family Medicine Direct Primary Care of Wellington, the team spends an adequate amount of time with you when you come to the office with concerns about your health and nutrient needs. 

During an evaluation, your provider reviews your concerns and symptoms, medical and medication history, as well as your diet and lifestyle. They may order diagnostic tests to evaluate your vitamin B12 status. Grace Family Medicine Direct Primary Care of Wellington offers in-office testing for your convenience and has negotiated a significant reduction in your out-of-pocket lab costs, so you get the best possible pricing. 

In addition to restoring nutrient levels, you may also use vitamin B12 injections to boost energy and stimulate fat loss. 

What can I expect during a vitamin B12 injection?

Your vitamin B12 injection is conducted at the office and only takes a few minutes. You may feel a little pinch during the injection, but any discomfort is fleeting.

Most patients report an immediate improvement in energy levels following a vitamin B12 injection. To continue to get the health benefits, your provider may suggest regular injections. Vitamin B12 is a water-soluble vitamin, and the risk of toxicity is very low.

The team at Grace Family Medicine Direct Primary Care of Wellington uses methylcobalamin, which is the most sterile compounded form of vitamin B12. Through their direct primary care model, the team provides you the injection at the lowest possible cost.
