Obese Children and Adolescents–A Risk Group for Low Vitamin B12 Concentration
As if obese kids didn’t have the deck stacked against them already. I guess the important question may be how are these kids deficient? Vit B12 is readily available in an animal-based diet, so why would this population, which is much more likely to eat animal based rather than plant based, be deficient? I am unsure why B12 would be deficient in this age group. In seniors and stressful persons, we can look to digestive deficiencies that impair our absorption of B12 and this is relatively common.
