    sore cracked lip & vitamin b12

    Hi I've been on 100mg Levothyroxine for 3 years . All this time I have suffered with a sore, burning, cracked, flaky lower lip . I wondered whether taking a vtamin b12 supplement would help cure this condition. My lip never seems to bleed hence not able to heal. How do you work out the correct doseage of b12?

    Re: sore cracked lip & vitamin b12

    B12 is water soluble so any extra would just pass through urine. There is an issue with proper absorption of Vitamin B12 hence larger quantities are consumed as tablet is absorbed very little.

    Try getting some sublingual ones as they are more effective

    On top of that, check your Vitamin D levels as flaky skin can be caused by that as well. Plus Vitamin C is good for proper production of collagen in the skin
