Could someone please offer advice regarding my results
May 2013 Bloods taken at G.P. s
Serum B12 377 range 180 - 1100
Serum folate 5.3 range 3.0 - 20.
I am hypothyroid and take levo thyroxine 100mcg one day 125mcg next day.
I started supplementing with a B12 sublingual spray, 2400ug daily
Sept. 2013 Myrios blood test
B12 904 range 141 - 489
Folate 45.4 range 10.4 - 42.4
Sept. 2103 started developing right cheek numbness, tip of nose and lip numbness.
Went to G.P. as I was worried I had a stroke.
She sent me to TIA clinic, consultant said all O.K. but had a CT scan to be on the safe side, Scan thankfully normal
Daughter read on internet too much B12 can cause facial numbness so stopped B12 supplement.
Facial numbness eased after a few days but I do still get it intermittently maybe once or twice a week lasting for a few hours before subsiding.
Jan. 2014 Myrios blood test
B12 - 542 range 141 - 489
Folate - 45.4 range 10.4 - 42.4
Obviously the B12 has gone down but the folate has stayed exactly the same, above range.
Can anyone throw any light on the results please.
I am really confused about the folate result.
Many thanks in advance.
