where do you get your b12?

So I finally seen a private doctor, it was a great result :) I am starting on injections on friday and will be getting taught how to self inject, my prescription for 6 box's of 5 ampoules in each was £63 that also includes the needle's, just wondering is this price about right or can I get it else where for cheaper?

I am also starting on armour for my thyroid as soon as I have a more up to date blood test.

I would like to thank this group especially Martyn Hooper for getting me on the right track.

Any information on where you get your equipment would be grateful x

My level at the very start was 245 but at that time was also supplementing with a multi vitimin for a while that had b12 in.

Hi Please can you let me know your doctor in Bristol?

I'm afraid Nicola79 hasn't posted anything on this group for two years, so I doubt she'll read your message.

You could try sending a personal message. Click on her name at the top of her post and you'll be able to see her posting history. There's also a button to message her directly.

If you read the post above yours you'll see that nichola79 hasn't been active on HU for two years.

I buy hydroxo 1mg ampoules boxes of 10x10 from Germany for not much more than you are paying for 30 (including cost of shipping). I use insulin needles to do sub-cutaneous which you can get quite easily in the UK (few £s for 100) and are not very expensive - IM wouldn't be that much more expensive.

Can you possibly send me the link to them in inbox if no bother?

Its a German site but here is the link. First order has to be paid up front which is a bit of a pain but after that it is all quite quick.

Lots of other people use Goldpharma which is in English - it's just that I came across the German firm first. Don't think there is going to be any significant difference in price.

How did you find a private doctor? Is there a link you can send to me. I live in Birmingham and although I would love to go to Bristol, it's not really viable.

Nichola, I'm delighted you've found the help you needed. I remember you were in a bad way before Xmas and getting nowhere with your GP. Hope you feel better before too long.
