Elderly people often need B12 injections because their bodies are not able to produce the intrinsic factor, an enzyme needed to absorb B12. Also, a poor diet and some health conditions inhibit absorption of Vitamin B12.<quoted text>Bullsht__the story was about an old broad who was refused her "free" monthly B-12 shot.
Stay on topic fkface.
Medicare should not be paying for that crap unless the old gal had a serious and documented deficiency. Fk the old lady for cheating MediCare, fk you for being stupid and fk Lois Lane for reposting a nutjob email.
An elderly person is more prone to suffer from B12 deficiency because the human body's ability to absorb B12 decreases with age, due in large part to a reduction in stomach acid.
One shot will last for months and even years.
What's it to you anyway? You have no problem supporting able-bodied people who live off your paycheck instead of their own because it's better than working but you'd deny an elderly person a B12 shot?
