Abstract: Background: Vitamin B 12 deficiency can occur due to a variety of causes. The aim of this retrospective study was to find out the prevalence of Vitamin B-12 deficiency in general population who attended in our clinic. Material & Methods: Laboratory data of 255 patients who visited our clinic over a period of 3 months from Oct 2020 to Dec 2020 was collated and analysed. Result: Data of patients of both sexes from 12 to 82 years were included in the analysis. Maximum number of participants were in the age group of 31 to 40. 53 % of participants were males and 47 % were females. In the given population studied, 25 % (n=63) were vitamin B 12 deficient. 62 % males (n=39) and 38 % females (n=24) were found to be vitamin B 12 deficient. A higher proportion of vegetarians were vitamin B 12 deficient. A significant proportion of diabetes patients were also found to be deficient. Conclusion: One-fourth of the population across a wide age group were found to be vitamin B12 deficient. Vegetarian patients are at a higher risk of deficiency and must be assessed on a regular basis.
