Treatment

Self-care:
Consuming food rich in Vitamin B12 is the best way to prevent the development of this disease. Dairy products, eggs, meat, fish, and poultry are some of the good sources of Vitamin B12.

Medication:
Doctors usually ask the patients to consume food rich in Vitamin B12. If the patient is a vegetarian then, doctors may prescribe vitamin supplements like Vitamin B12-fortified grains, injections or a high dose of oral Vitamin B12. The conditions are usually cured when the body receives the enough amount of Vitamin B12.
