How about putting this question on the Thyroid forum here on Healthunlocked and perhaps 1 or 2 other forums on the community list here on Healthunlocked. The D3 will I should imagine be for bone health reasons. The Levo for thyroid reasons,. and there is a Diabetic forum also I think

ask about B12 on the PASoc forum


there are a number of diabetic forums



and others

The symptoms you mention could be explained by complications of diabetes not being well controlled.

If she is taking metformin that can interfere with B12 absorption but you will only really know if this is happening - using serum B12 - if you see a significant drop in levels >20% over time.
