When people dive into online research, inaccurate information can make them more nervous, says Dr. Denise Leonardi, medical director of Lovelace Health Plan and a family physician for 26 years.

"A lot of times people come in saying, 'I have a headache. I must have a brain tumor,' " she says.
People with low health literacy may have trouble understanding what is happening with their bodies, Leonardi says. If they don't understand their condition, they are unlikely to follow instructions, she says.
When patients do their own research, she does not suggest simply plugging a diagnosis into a search engine. That nets too many sites and blogs with inaccurate information. She also avoids sites with distracting advertisements.
While that takes time, Leonardi says she "loved it when people brought me stuff so I could correct any misinformation."
If patients do their own research, she suggests that they write specific questions and bring them to a doctor.
When patients do find good sources, it can help them make valuable connections about their health, she says.
"I know the Web has created more hypochondriacs," she says.

"For people who have dementia, we always check B-12 levels," says Dr. Denise Leonardi, director of Lovelace Health Plan and a primary care doctor who used to practice in Las Cruces.

MaryVee Cammack, 61, a former patient of Leonardi's, has taken B-12 on and off since 2004. She was tested for B-12 deficiency after Cammack reported feeling rundown and tired all the time. She was not anemic and had no thyroid problems.
"I had no energy," she says. "I was just very drained."
After she started taking B-12, her symptoms improved within about a week.
"I could tell really soon that I was feeling better," she says.
As people age they can develop atrophic gastritis, which decreases acid production, Leonardi says. That means there is less of the pepsin and hydrochloric acid needed to break down proteins, which release vitamin B-12. People who eat plenty of meat can still have low B-12.
People over 50 should get more B-12 from fortified foods like cereal or supplements because they can absorb it more easily, according to the National Institutes of Health.
When patients have gastric bypass surgery they are also more likely to have low B-12 levels, says Leonardi.
