Question Pernicious Anemia

It appears this is my problem. But as I read about it being B12 and also B6 linked, what causes it in the first place?

And how much is too much or upper-limits for suppliments?

Re: Pernicious Anemia

Vitamin B12 deficiency can be caused by either insufficient intake (vegan or near vegan diet without any B12 fortified foods or supplements) or lack of the intrinsic factor needed to absorb B12. In the latter case, B12 is given by injection.

But when I look up intrinsic factor problems, which is my problem, it says that B12 deficiency causes it, so which came first, the chicken or the egg?

This is evidenced by noted by naturapaths that say they can recreate intrinsic factor/stomach acid by B vitamin suppliments. Is it just about a snowball rolling down hill, one's body get's low on B's so it stops making stomach acid, which makes it absorb even less, which makes it even LOWER again still. Or is there some magic original disease that pernicious Anemia is??????
