Detailed Answer:
Dear
Thanks for contacting with your health concern and after reviewing your medical history and medication section, I'm of the following opinion:

1. As there is positive obesity history which is associated with cardiovascular disease [ a medication for high BP is there] thus following is/are my observations:

i. There is no significant correlation between obesity and Vit. B12 level [unless and until the patient is a strict vegetarian, above 50 and below 18 years of age, and using proton pump inhibitors [medicine for acidity] and having intestinal absorption disease like IBS. [please let me know if any possibility is there for you]?

ii. The most common deficiency associated with obesity is the low concentration of Vit. D which is linked to accelerated atherosclerosis [through increased oxidative stress] thus do check with your lipid profile and blood test as routine

iii. As vitamin B12 is mainly found in animal protein thus non-vegetarian diet is the choice or you can take a multivitamin which includes Vitamin B3 and 12.

iv. For Vitamin D; sunlight is the best source, apart from that you can take carrot, beetroot, spinach, radish, tomato, coriander, mint, amla rasayan, soybean, cucumber, cabbage, vitamin D fortified: pineapple-yogurt-milk, dry mushroom, banana, cod liver oil.

v. If interested I can send you the herbal medicines [prepared by me] which will
naturally increase both the vitamin

PS. please let me know about the values of both the Vitamins.

Detailed Answer:
Dear
Thanks for reverting back

1. As already suggested that Vitamin B12 is readily present in animal protein and not present in plant food so for strict vegetarian fortified breakfast cereals, soy, almond/coconut milk fortified with Vitamin B12 is ideal or nutritional yeast products along with taking a Vit. B12 supplement is choice
PS. So you have to take medicine which helps in absorption of the vitamin-like panchassava, Ashwagandha churan.

2. For vitamin D: tablet Reosteo [Himalaya] and cod liver oil [seven seas] are best

PS. If you want pure Ayurveda formulation extracted from plant source and suitable for vegetarians, increasing both the level of vitamins do let me know since I do prepare the same [result oriented and cost effective]

Dear Doctor,

Recently, 3 different nights, I have been awakened with discomfort in my rib cage, like a balloon being blown up inside me. I can't seem to burp or pass gas when this happens. Feels as if there is no room for my lungs to breathe and like my heart is beating slower. I took Gas-X and it goes away in about 20 minutes. I have a history of acid reflux which is under control with Prevacid. Could I have a problem with not enough good bacteria in my gut due to taking the proton pump inhibitors for several years or could this be something more serious? Thank you.
