“Effects of Vitamin B12, Folate and Vitamin B6 Supplements in Elderly People With Normal Serum Vitamin Concentrations,” Narath, Hans J., et al, The Lancet, July 8, 1995;346:85-89.

This study, over an 8 month period, evaluated 300 individuals between 65 and 96 years of age. This was done in a double-blind, placebo-controlled fashion. Intramuscular vitamin injection of 1 mg of vitamin B12, 1.1 mg of folate and 5 mgs of B6 were given. The vitamin supplements, but not the placebo significantly reduced all 4 metabolite concentrations (methylmalonic acid, homocysteine, 2-methylcitric acid and cystathionine). This response to the intramuscular vitamin injection supports the notion that there is metabolic evidence of vitamin deficiency and it is common in the elderly, even in the presence of normal vitamin levels.

“Vitamin B12 Optic Neuropathy in Autism,” Pineles SL, Avery RA, Liu GT, Pediatrics, 2010 Sept 20

In this study, the authors report on the cases of 3 autistic children who presented with gradual vision loss. When treated with vitamin B12 (intramuscular injection), vitamin B12 levels normalized, and moreover, visual functioning improved in all 3 children. The authors conclude, “These cases illustrate that food selectivity, a known complication of autism, can result in vitamin deficiency that can cause visual loss and optic atrophy.”
