Can someone with celiac disease have Vitamin B-12 anemia? If so, what can they do about it?

Although Vitamin B-12 is absorbed in the distal ileum, where villi should be okay even in someone with celiac disease, in reality we do see many celiacs with low levels of B-12 at diagnosis. Take a supplement and have the serum level re-checked in 2-3 months; it should be normal. January, 2013
