Read time: 1 mins
Last updated:9th Apr 2014

In this study we compare the vitamin B12 status by measuring serum vitamin B12 and holotranscobalamin in type 2 diabetic patients with and without metformin treatment. Afterwars we investigate which biomarker could be adequate to reflect B12 status in metformin-treated patients.

With the help of a questionnaire we assess clinical, nutritional and demographic factors which are associated with vitamin B12 deficiency.
