About the Author
Martyn Hooper founded the Pernicious Anaemia Society to provide a forum for sufferers from the condition, having battled with the effects of vitamin B-12 deficiency for many years without a diagnosis. He found he had tapped into a massive hidden problem and has been campaigning for better diagnosis, treatment and recognition of the condition ever since. To write this latest book he has drawn on the experience of the Society’s 7000+ members together with classic and current research findings, responses to his earlier.
