Default Pernicious anemia


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.
Pernicious anemia
I'd rather meander for the prevention than race for the cure.
