Question

  • HadIt.com Elder

Is preneisous Anmia <ms   AO related?

I have it and been told by a VA Dr  that  because I have it is because  I am  (missing my intsric-factor) thats the part inside you around the esafugus,<ms)  that take in your B12 as you eat.

so I have to take the B-12 injections the rest of my life

 

and the only known medical reason a person would not have there'' instric-factor'' is  if they use to consume alcohol in high doses or have a form of Leukemia?

I don't drink alcohol 

so I was wondering if it could be AO Related.??

Buck,

According to the Mayo Clinic website, lack of intrinsic factor may be due to an autoimmune reaction or it may be inherited,  Has anyone in your family had this same condition?   Hopefully, you do not have leukemia but if you do have a B-cell leukemia, it would definitely be AO related.  

Let us know if you find out what is causing you to have a lack of intrinsic factor.  Take care of yourself.

My doctor calls it pernicious anemia.  I have it but probably for another reason-notwithstanding that I have two AI diseases. I have Porphyria Cutanea Tarda-yep- that one like chloracne where you had to manifest it within a year of departing the leechpit. I get a 1-pint phlebotomy every month. After about eight months I'm almost bingo for RBCs and take a 3-4 month vacation to reload. It's like LSD when I bend over.  Whole Lottsaspotz before my eyes.

I had an Aunt on my wifes side that worked in the cash office of wal-mart and she started seeing spots before her eyes  and told the co workers somethings wrong I'm seeing spots....about 3 minutes later she fell out of her chair dead....anurizisuim   in her brain broke.

she never had any eyes problems before perfectly healthy  other than she was a smoker  this just happen all of a sudden.

we just never know when its our time to go.
