Years of taking popular diabetes drug tied to risk of B12 deficiency - e-Healthy Solutions

"Metformin is the most commonly used drug to treat type 2 diabetes, so many millions of people are taking it, usually for a prolonged period (many years)," said senior study author Dr. Jill P Crandall of Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York City, by email.
"Smaller numbers of people take metformin for prevention of diabetes or treatment of polycystic ovary syndrome," Crandall told Reuters Health. Vitamin B12 deficiency may lead to nerve damage which can be severe and may be irreversible, Crandall said. "Severe and prolonged B12 deficiency has also been linked to impaired cognition and dementia," she said. "The FDA and organizations such as the American Diabetes Association do not have any formal recommendations for B12 monitoring for people taking metformin," Crandall said. "That said, our study (and others) suggests that a small but significant number of people may develop deficiency." "People who are taking metformin should ask their doctor about measuring their B12 level," she said. Restoring healthy B12 levels is easy to accomplish with pills or monthly injections, she added. "The risk of B12 deficiency should not be considered a reason to avoid taking metformin," Crandall said.

Long-Term Metformin Use Linked with Vitamin B12 Deficiency

With commentary by Jill Crandall, MD, professor of clinical medicine, Albert Einstein College of Medicine, New York.
Long-term use of the popular diabetes drug metformin is linked with vitamin B12 deficiency and anemia, according to new research that solidifies some previous research. vitamin b12 "We have essentially confirmed what many smaller studies have suggested," says Jill Crandall, MD, professor of clinical medicine at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine, the Bronx, who led the new study. "There is a small but significant risk of developing Vitamin B12 deficiency when people take metformin." The finding, she adds, ''has implications for the consequences of B12 deficiency. These can include cognitive impairment, nerve problems (neuropathy) and anemia (low red blood cell count). B12 is crucial for the proper formation of red blood cells, for neurological functioning and for making DNA. The link between taking the popular diabetes drug and deficiencies in vitamin B12 has been discussed as long ago as 1969, according to Dr. Crandall. However, few studies have looked at long term use, as her new study has done, tracking people for up to 13 years. The narrowed gap seems counter-intuitive until Dr. Crandall explains what is happening. "As time goes on, the groups are a little contaminated," Dr. Crandall says, because some in the placebo group, as time went on, developed diabetes and had to begin taking metformin. Years of use was linked with an increased risk of B12 deficiency, Dr. Crandall found. Those taking metformin were more likely to have anemia, regardless of their B12 status. Those taking metformin with low B12 were more likely to have neuropathy. The study findings suggest that routine testing of Vitamin B12 should be considered in patients on metformin treatment, Dr. Crandall says. Experts think that metformin affects the way Vitamin B12 is absorbed by the body. "People should be aware of this possibility," Dr. Crandall says of the metformin and low B12 link. Currently, she says, there are no official recommendations for B12 testing of those on metformin. Symptoms of B12 deficiency may include numbness, tingling in the feet, and memory problems, Dr. Crandall says.
