I posted recently that I returned to my Dr to say that my first B12 maintenance injection was due in April but I was still coughing and had some other symptoms and was there any chance of having the injection earlier. She sought advice from the other Dr's in practice who advised her to write to a haemotologist. I also had another serum B12 test - 630, Folate - 13 (I've been supplementing with active B complex - folate 4.9 originally). Ferritin high again at 321, so had tibc which came bk normal at 56 (45-72), iron, 20 (7-27) and transferrin saturation at 36%.
I was asked to see her today to discuss consultants advice. As my IF came bk negative - therefore no PA. 630 is normal so no further action needed. A check up blood test in 2 months to see levels then. If low to see gastro person to investigate poss malabsorption issues.
So I said to her - basically I asked for more - and the result is I'm not going to receive any at all! Yes she said, unless u privately want to see a haematologist.
They accept I was low before - Active 36, MMA 443 - (0-289) and homocysteine 13.10 (0-15) but I'm all cured now after injections. Is this right?
Seeing respiratory consultant mon privately for cough. (3 yrs ongoing - started after gallstone op).
Gutted. It would also mean no supplements as would affect test results...
