What Every Parent Needs to Know About Vitamin B12 Deficiency
by Sally M. Pacholok, R.N. and Jeffrey J. Stuart, D.O.

Your child is unsocial, moody, and not hitting standard development milestones. Is it autism? Mental disability? Or could it be Vitamin B12 deficiency? Millions of children and adolescents are at risk of developing serious neurological disorders caused by B12 deficiency. B 12 deficiency is treatable, if caught in time — but the medical establishment is woefully ignorant of the prevalence of B12 deficiency,  and proper screening is rare. Many young lives are ruined by untreated B12 deficiency, which can cause brain damage, permanent physical and mental disabilities and even death.

Could It Be B12? Pediatric Edition is the only book for parents that offers a complete guide to detecting and preventing childhood disorders caused by B12 deficiency. Written by Sally Pacholok and Dr. Jeffrey Stuart, authors of the acclaimed Could It Be B12?, Could It Be B12? Pediatric Edition offers parents critical information about protecting children from B12 deficiency from early fetal development through adolescence.

Could It Be B12? Pediatric Edition presents strategies for healthy nutrition for mothers during pregnancy and breast feeding, early intervention for infants and young children, and detecting subtle to severe symptoms of B12 deficiency in older children and teenagers. Could It Be B12? Pediatric Edition will help readers learn how to detect the warning signs of childhood B12 deficiency, prevent serious injury with timely intervention, and work with health care professionals to get effective treatment for their children. Could It Be B12? Pediatric Edition is a must-read for all parents, expectant parents, teachers, and healthcare providers.
