Hi,Suneeta,
Folic acid has no side effect on the baby.
During pregnancy we advice Iron and Folic acid for anemia to expecting mother along with other vitamin supplements.
So nothing to worry.
ok and bye.

Can b12 or folic acid deficiency cause hair thinning and hair loss? I am a 57 year old female and have had tingling in hands a feet, mouth sores that come and go in a couple of days, a lot of hair thinning, low energy and my doctor tested my mch and it came back as 33.5. I haven t had my follow visit or test on b12 or folic acid yet. I also have Crohns and take methotrexate injection. I only take a one a day vitamin so after getting the results about my mch it make sense that I could have anemia. But can it also affect my hair growth?

Hi. Yesterday, my GP diagnosed me with celiac disease. My few symptoms seem to stem from vitamin deficiencies and anaemia through malabsorption i.e memory loss, numb tongue, pallor etc. Both my sister and father also have celiac disease, so I am no stranger to the hard-ships of a gluten-free diet. As a student, I have made an informed decision not to follow this treatment plan, with the knowledge that I would be increasing my risk of cancer, because I feel it would be impossible to fit around my lifestyle. I will be seeing my GP again next week for my follow-up appointment, and am planning to ask for a prescription for strong multivitamins, treatment for my anaemia, and digestive enzymes. In your opinion, how effective will this treatment plan be? Is my GP likely to agree to this? Thanks.
