Vitamin B12 supplements

I have mild to moderate Crohn's. My tongue is sore, which is a symptom of vitamin B12 deficiency. I am going to take a B12 supplement. Is there any way to determine how much (micrograms) to take each day?

My nutritionist has me doing 5000 mg's under the tongue with Sublingul. It is very very hard to overdose on b12 according to one of my doctors. He said b12 and d3 are Crohn's happy vitamins. I do liquid versions of both, the latter I mix in applesauce.

Since B12 is a water soluble vitamin that is excreted by the kidneys, if you take too much what you mostly end up with is expensive urine.

I take 1 B12 timed release 1200 mcg a day. I think dosage varies according to your body's level of absorbtion.

Your doctor should know, as my doctor and the doctor that leads my support group that it is very difficult to overdose B vitamins as they will be expelled in urine. If you drink enough water there will be no damage,

More importantly is Crohnís people need extra B12 and D3 vitamins because we do not absorb as much as others. D3 is natural and absorbs better than synthetic D2.

My urine is only 10 cents a day.
Pretty cheap I'd say.

It is needed to convert carbohydrates into glucose in the body, thus leading to energy production and a decrease in fatigue and lethargy in the body.
It helps in healthy regulation of the nervous system, reducing depression, stress, and brain shrinkage.
It helps maintain a healthy digestive system. Vitamin B12 also protects against heart disease by curbing and improving unhealthy cholesterol levels, protecting against stroke, and high blood pressure.
It is essential for healthy skin, hair, and nails. It helps in cell reproduction and constant renewal of the skin.
Vitamin B 12 helps protect against cancers including breast, colon, lung, and prostrate cancer.
