Blood test showed low B12 levels, diagnosed as prenicius anemia. What treatment should be taken?

a blood test back in February indicated that my daughter s B12 was on the very low end of the spectrum, yet the dr. said that was not a problem. Another dr. just told us recently she had prenicius anemia yet does not treat that diagnosis. Should prenicius anemia go untreated and what happens then. What specialist should I be looking for to treat this?

Hi, Thanks for query.
As your daughter has very low B12,it requires treatment with injection B12 and she will be alright.
If pernicious anemia untreated she will feel extreme weakness,dizzines,loss of appetite,cramps,muscle weakness.
You may consult Hematologist or Physician.
Ok and bye.
