Hydroxocobalamin Drug Information

The most common cause of vitamin B12 deficiency in the UK is fatal anemia. This condition causes your body to not absorb enough vitamin B12 from the foods you eat. This could be because you are not able to absorb it properly or because you have had gastrointestinal surgery and part of your digestive system has been removed. This type of anemia is easily treated with regular injections of hydroxocobalamin, a form of vitamin B12. Hydroxocobalamin is sometimes used for some rare eye diseases.
