Hello,

If you are vegetarian, you may suffer from B12 deficiency and Absolut DM may be a sufficient replacement. You can get quicker and higher levels if you prefer injections. It may be good your B12 after a couple of months. If you are still deficient, your absorption of B12 is not normal and that may need to be looked into.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
