[IP] Pernicious Anemia (PA)

This condition is associated with IDDM because not only are the beta cells 
killed but also there are anti parietal cell antibodies formed which knock 
out gastric parietal cells and cause loss of B12 absorption from yer 
stomach. This leads to PA Do not fool around with PA it can screw up the 
nerves in your body forever. You must go on B12 injections if you have PA 
its a serious disease if ignored. Just  as a bit of history Dr Minot who 
was a hematology fellow in Toronto had IDDM and was dying on the Allen Diet 
got Insulin from Banting and went on to figure out the treatment for PA. He 
lived into his 50's I seem to remember at a time when DKA was a deadly 
problem. Spot
