NASCOBAL SPRAY (CYANOCOBALAMIN)

Nascobal Spray Description

Nascobal Spray contains Cyanocobalamin, a man-made form of vitamin B12 that is delivered quite uniquely as a self-administered nasal mist to treat those with pernicious anemia. This is a rare blood disorder that may be inherited and as a result, your stomach is unable to absorb vitamin B12. Our body does not make its own vitamin B12; therefore it is usually consumed from your diet in order to produce red blood cells. A Schilling test will be conducted that will tell your doctor if you are able to naturally absorb vitamin B12.

Easy Dosing with Nascobal Spray

Pernicious anemia can occur if your stomach does not make enough of a protein called intrinsic factor, which is essential for helping your intestines. Regular use of Nascobal Spay, which contains Cyanocobalamin, can help provide your body with vitamin B12 and reduce your symptoms of pernicious anemia. Once you have received your prescription to buy Nascobal Spray, you will only require one dose into one nostril once a week to maintain a healthy level of vitamin B12.

Risk Factors and Symptoms of Pernicious Anemia

The causes of pernicious anemia could be a result of a gastric bypass surgery, abnormal bacterial growth in your intestines, an intestinal disease, or from a tapeworm from consuming contaminated fish. However, it is most often due to the lack of intrinsic factor (IF) with symptoms not usually seen until about the age of thirty years. Risk factors for being diagnosed with pernicious anemia may be type 1 diabetes, Addison or Graves disease, hyperparathyroidism, or chronic thyroiditis. The most common cause of pernicious anemia is an impaired or weakened stomach lining or an autoimmune disease that destroys the intrinsic factor or the parietal cells in your stomach lining that make IF.

Symptoms of pernicious anemia can include diarrhea or constipation, loss of appetite, fatigue, pale skin, a swollen and red tongue or bleeding gums, and an eating disorder called pica. Pica can involve eating paint chips, ice cubes, dirt, as well as dangerous items that can block, puncture, or cause an infection in your intestines. You may end up with nerve damage if you have endured a low vitamin B12 level for a long period of time. Some may be diagnosed as having depression, which is actually a symptom of untreated low levels of vitamin B12.

Before Nascobal Spray is Prescribed

Advise your doctor of any other medical conditions or allergies you have as well as any medications you currently take or use, including herbal remedies and dietary or other vitamin supplements. This will help your doctor determine if Nascobal Spray is the right treatment for you.

Nascobal Spray Precautions and Recommendations

Follow your doctors’ instructions for administering Nascobal Spray intranasally and do not start or stop any medications without talking to your doctor first. Do not miss any lab or doctor appointments while using Nascobal Spray as this is the best way to monitor your condition.
