Vitamin B12 Injections

Hello Dr Anrich Burger

I wanted to ask whether it is okay to inject Vit B12 into your tummy " fat"  instead of muscle - does it work?

Vitamin B12 (unfortunately, a painful injection) has to be given as a deep intra-muscular injection. Injecting this into fatty tissue will have an effect on the sufficiency of the product and can cause severe local irritation and even the formation of an abscess.
