    Thank you so much for your informative article re B12. It clarified, for me, some issues concerning my personal medical problem. In 2007, I required a parathyroidectomy due to the presence of several adenomas. The surgeon reportedly removed three of my glands… finding 5 such, said he. He advised me to take 1500 mgs of calcium daily….in the form of TUMS…which would be considerably cheaper than Calcium Citrate said he. Well, now, after much research, I have learned why I have had major fatigue issues since. The daily use of 1500 mgs of calcium carbonate, an acid blocker, reduced the stomach lining’s ability to manufacture the intrinsic factor required for the absorbtion of the vitamin B12. Thus it could not be absorbed efficiently! I am still trying to determine why I have a swollen tongue with scalloped edges that persists. I am hypothyroid and do take Levothyroxine and my numbers, at least my TSH, which he seems to pay the most attention to…appears acceptable. Nevertheless I do believe there is an answer for my swollen tongue! I am a well educated lady; thus I do a lot of research on this matter. Your article was indeed informative. Thanks!
