Vitamin B12 deficiency is relatively common, especially among older (50+) people. There are many causes for vitamin B12 deficiency. Surprisingly, two of them are practices often undertaken to improve health: a vegetarian diet and weight-loss surgery. Conditions that interfere with food absorption, such Celiac or Crohn’s disease, can also contribute to low B12 levels.
