User:and now my menses is not regular from last 2 months
Doctor:did you mention that to Dr the last time ?
Doctor:Are u a vegetarian , by any means ?
User:ya i told her
Doctor:ok , it is more probably that you may have low B 12 levels, due to lack of B 12 in your diet
User:actually i am strressed out in my job as well i have lot of works at home so now a days i have become very irregular in food
Doctor:B12 is present predominantly in non vegetrian diets , and less in vegetables
User:most of time i skip breakfast or dinner
Doctor:so it is common in vegetarians, to be defecient in B 12
User:now from past 1 week i am feeling hungry only.. i dont feelinh like having solid foods
User:so u mwan vitamin b12 deff can cause periors delayed
Doctor:for the time being, I would advice you to Take Cap MEGANEURON
Doctor:once a day for 3 months
Doctor:delayed periods are usually a less common sign
Doctor:but , there are other conditions like low thyroid status, which are common in women , and they can cause such issues
User:meganeuron is it for vitb12?
Doctor:do u have cold insensibility, weight gain, dry skin , lethargy, like issues ?
User:i am having lethargy but weight gain and dry skin is not tr..
Doctor:Yes, That is right , meganeuron is a B12 and Folic acid supplement
User:still i will go for throid test today?
Doctor:In addition, i would also recommend a Peripheral blood smear, along with the thyroid function tests
Doctor:any changes of low B 12 can be seen as changes in the blood cell size
Doctor:you can also take DISPRIN tab 2-3 times a day, for the fever, and body pain
Doctor:try to keep a proper healthy diet , and eat regularly at proper times
Doctor:drink lot of water, and 2-3 servings of fresh fruits daily
