Default Pernicious anemia

Interesting.

Replacement of vitamin stores does not correct the defect in absorption from loss of intrinsic factor. Since the defect defines the disease, a person without the ability to absorb B12 in this way will have pernicious anemia for the remainder of his or her life. However, unless the patient has sustained permanent peripheral nerve damage before treatment, regular B12 replacement will keep PA in check, with no anemia and no further symptoms.

If you take EFFECTIVE amounts of vitamin d3 DAILY (140 iu per kilogram bodyweight as a loading dose and 70 iu per kilogram once 50ng/ml 125nmol/l has been attained as a maintenance amount this enables your body to deal with pathogens that are thriving on and exhausting your B12 reserves. It also promotes the number and diversity of beneficial gut bacteria which help with the production and absorption of B vitamins.
explained in detail here.
Effects of high doses of vitamin D3 on mucosa-associated gut microbiome vary between regions of the human gastrointestinal tract
I've the full text of the Gominak paper as well if you like.

Supplementing with B12 is a good idea while you are restoring Vitamin d status and while rebuilding your B12 stores but it shouldn't be necessary if you are eating a balanced diet including meat.
