B12 deficiency can come from a few different things, some you can get thru, some not.
*If you are eating a poor diet, or are a vegetarian, changing your diet and adding supplements might help you, but you'll need careful monitoring and should see a nutritionist.
*If your trouble is that you are taking meds for reflux, stop taking the meds and chances are you will recover, but it does take a l-o-n-g time.
*If you have too little acid in your stomach, this can be treated and may result in being able to take oral supplements again.
*If your trouble is malabsorption from something like Celiac Disease, then treating the Celiac's (or reason for malabsorption) may help, but depending on the damage you may still have to take your injections.
*If you have the autoimmune condition Pernicious Anemia, you are stuck on injections for the rest of your life.
