What causes blurred vision while suffering from vitamin B12 deficiency?
Eyesight impairment probably due to optic nerves damage.
Hello and thanks for using HCM.
I have read your query and understand your concerns.
Blurry eyesight is probably related to optic nerves damage due to lack of vitamin B12.
Besides deficiencies of vitamin B12 related to low intake, malabsorption, gastrointestinal problems, lupus and Grave's diseases, genetic disorders of vitamin B12 metabolism are known as well.
These genetic disorders result in conditions such homocystnuria and methylmalonic aciduria implicating enzymes that utilize vitamin B12.
If these conditions are confirmed, treatment consists on high amounts of vitamin B12 intake, together with Folic acid intake.
I suggest you to discuss with your treating Doctor about getting tested to diagnose above mentioned conditions.
I didn't find any imbalance that could justify your concerns after the reports examination, uploaded by you.
Hope you found the answer helpful.
Let me know if I can assist you further.
A team of Doctors needed.
Your condition is a rare one, in my opinion, you should be evaluated by a team of Doctors that includes a Neurologist, a Geneticist ( genetics Doctor ) and an Ophthalmologist.
If it was confirmed to you that actually is a enzyme that processes the vitamin B12 deficiency, improving your condition needs high doses of vitamin B12.
Hope I've been of help.
Wishing you good health.
