    What's the link between B12 deficiency and MS?

    I have been told that often MS is mis-diagnosed and the neurological symptoms can be attributed to a severe B12 deficiency. I also heard that often people can get blood tests for B12 levels but the threshold is too low in current testing?

    My research interests include immunology and the mechanisms of amyloid formation. The latter has implications for people who are dealing with Alzheimer's Disease, Parkinson's Disease … View Profile

    As far as I can see from a PubMed search (PubMed is the standard literature database for peer-reviewed papers written by biomedical scientists and health professionals) there is no convincing evidence for a link between multiple sclerosis and Vitamin B12 deficiency.

    I searched for "multiple sclerosis" AND "vitamin b12".
