Could a B12 deficiency be causing my daughter’s symptoms?

My 15-year-old daughter keeps crying all the time and has begun hitting her boyfriend. She never comes home when she should and is sometimes verbally abusive to myself and her siblings. She is vegetarian, could these symptoms be caused by vitamin B12 deficiency? I don’t know what to do and I am at the end of my tether with her, please help.

I would suggest that you have her doctor give her a thorough physical and take a careful history. She is in need of help. Discuss this with her doctor. She may be depressed.

In the meantime, give her lots of positive attention. Try and build your relationship. She needs your support and to feel you are on her side.
