I have heard that GORD can cause a deficiency in Vitamin B, can anyone shed any light on this and if it is true, how would I know?
 
many thanks.

Hi LLareggud, i dont think the condition itself causes any deficiencys in vitamins but medications to treat it can.Acid Suppressing drugs ie.PPis and h2 blockers cut down the amount of acid in the stomach and this leads to defiiciencys.I had a b12 and folic acid deficiency while on a drug called Ranitadine at one time though it was quite a high dose of 900mg.

I take a b 12 supplement along with a host of other vitamins while I am on nexium. The ppi drug can cause deficiencies in the long term,

Per my Doctor, I also take B12 because the PPI's will rob B12 from your body. I have my B12 checked yearly to make sure everything is OK.
