Hi there, I agree with Dr. Venkata Raghava. I just want to tell that B12 deficiency can be genetic as well. This is commonly due to Intrinsic factor deficiency which is essential for absorption of B12 from gut.

Hello....... Vitamin b 12 deficiency lead to myelination disorder in nervous system ,it don't causes stroke, stroke is caused by emobolism, thrombus ,infraction.. Etc... It's not a genetic disorder, vitamin deficiency is commonly seen in pure vegetarian.. You can take multivitamin tablets.
