Dr. Norman Joins CthePower – B12 Deficiency
Dr. Eric Jesse Norman is the Laboratory Director, medical researcher at the Norman Clinical Laboratory. After finding a high incidence of permanent neurologic disability associated with vitamin B12 deficiency in nonanemic patients and a high prevalence of undetected B12 deficiency in elderly individual, Dr. Eric J. Norman established Norman Clinical Laboratory, Inc.(NCL) in 1985. NCL was the first clinical laboratory to provide physicians with the uMMA test.
Dr. Norman will join us to explain why testing is so important and discuss the challenges facing those whose B12 levels are insufficient.
The uMMA is such a critical test and if people have Medicare and other health insurance (other than Medicaid) they can get this test paid for by their health insurance at the rate their health insurance pays for a physician prescribed urinalysis. If the person does not want to bother with MDs and insurance, no prescription is required.
