Help with test results please

Hi I have finally got my test results from my GP. I was wondering if anyone could look at them and let me know what they think please. Sorry but have added everything as not sure what I could miss out. I cannot find my original B12 result as not sure what I am reading but know at the time I was told it was 105. Once again sorry so long winded. Thank you x

Your blood test look good, as far as I can see, all in normal range, but your serum B12 could be higher if you are on treatment. It all depends on how you feel. If you still have symptoms then that is what counts. Blood test are only half the story, I read in your other post (optician) you have decided to self medicate more frequent B12? Can do no harm, see if it helps you, it helped me a lot, including seeing better.

Kind regards,



Thanks for looking at that for me Marre I just can't understand all those numbers! The Thyroid thing is weird though I am currently on medication for this yet it flagged up a negative result which I was not told about. Not a surprise though given my GP.

You're right though they are only half the story. It's been 4 weeks since my last injection and my symptoms have not really gone away well not as much as they did after my loading doses. I am eagely awaiting a parcel so I can start self medicating.

Eyes weren't too bad thank you only change was the "getting old eyesight thing" that makes you hold your book a mile away to read :-)

Thanks again xx
