Hi after a two year fight (initial blood test was 147!) I have been started on B12 injections. My ferritin was tested then for the 1st time and was low (not sure of the score) so I was given iron tablets to take one a day and was retested after almost 6 weeks (still taking them). I have an appointment tomorrow to go through the results of recent bloods and called the receptionist who has given me some numbers over the phone. Any advice before seeing the doctor would be appreciated.
Ferritin 25 (previously too low)
Intrinsic factor Negative - so not pa?
Homocysteine - not back yet - previously about 17.3 over a year ago.
Folic acid/ folate 4.2 Previously been borderline
B12 - normal <1500 (in Jan before 6 boosters was 165)
Sorry I dont have the full details/ ranges - will hopefully get more info tomorrow.
Am still really tired and anxious and have some stomach problems, though the tiredness and anxiety went a way a bit after the injections.
