This book could save you years of ill health!

Vitamin B12 deficiency, often caused by pernicious anaemia, can be a devastating condition if left untreated, leading to irreversible nerve damage and disability after years of exhaustion and mental ‘fog’.

 
Its symptoms creep up on sufferers and are under-recognised by doctors; tests to confirm it, and underlying pernicious anaemia, are problematic.
 
Martyn Hooper, the founder of the Pernicious Anaemia Society, now brings together vital information about the condition and real-life stories – including his own and those of many members of the Society – that will help sufferers and their friends and families recognise the condition and understand how best to tackle it.
 

Review

‘This book is to be warmly welcomed. It is a vivid and very well-written account of a ‘hidden chapter’ in medicine that ought to be widely known among the public at large, among policy-makers, and among medical professionals. A major reappraisal of how we define, diagnose and treat B12-deficiency is needed, and this book is a trail-blazer for this mission.’ 
A. David Smith, Professor Emeritus of Pharmacology, University of Oxford, UK, and Helga Refsum, Professor of Nutrition, University of Oslo, Norway, and Visiting Professor of Human Nutrition, University of Oxford, UK.

***

Martyn Hooper founded the Pernicious Anaemia Society after being forced to give up full time work as a lecturer in Further Education owing to the long term effects of undiagnosed pernicious anaemia and vitamin B12 deficiency. He now runs the Society full time, and campaigns for improvements in diagnosis and treatment of these conditions.
