Vitamin B12 deficiency and cognitive impairment: Re-visiting an old acquaintance

2nd International Conference on Alzheimers Disease and Dementia

Belinda Vicioso

ScientificTracks Abstracts: J Alzheimers Dis Parkinsonism

DOI: 10.4172/2161-0460.S1.006

Since its isolation in 1948, cobalamin or vitamin B12 has been used to treat a deficiency syndrome that is variable in presentation and clinical features. During this talk, I will review new data expanding our understanding of the B12 deficiency spectrum. Especially pertinent to dementia specialists will be an update in bedside and laboratory diagnostic testing, new etiologic risk factors and treatment options.
