Over the counter supplements of multivitamins do not contain enough B12 to overcome this deficiency. It is recommended that B12 500 to 1000 microgram should be taken by diabetics on metformin. Please consult your doctor.

The Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices, a division of the (CDC) Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, is recommending that ALL ADULTS get immunized against pertussis (whooping cough). The goal of the expanded recommendation is to prevent teenagers and adults from spreading the disease to infants. In 2010, California experienced a pertussis outbreak that infected 9000 people and resulted in 10 infant deaths. The adult vaccine combines tetanus, diphtheria, and acellular pertussis (Tdap). Please consult your doctor.
