Hi all, sorry for the long drawn out post; but Hope you can help?
Had my 6th, loading B12 injection yesterday. I'm not getting any real improvement from having the B12 injections?? or maybe I am?? After the first injection there were signs of improvement ! But joints still swollen etc... began some Magnesium supplements; in hope they may improve my strength and energy (one a day) over the last few days. Sent for some Solgar Folate 800mcg and some Jarrows Sublingual 5000mcg tabs. A few friends and family say my colouring has improved (not looking so pale) recently; but the joints and nerve ends in my feet are still giving me problems when trying to walk any distance. Hip and pelvic (lower back) pain comes and goes; although there is something each day causing mobility problems.. Have another Blood test in 6, weeks and my 7th injection in 10 weeks ..
I have a question to ask about blood test readings? Hope you don't mind if I post just one or two at a time. My Serum Vit, B12 was 136 ng/L ( 180 - 900) "LOW" I'm getting injections of the B12 Deficiency But that is all I'm getting treated for; and a hospital appointment at Rheumatology Dept.
Here are two blood test results I'd like some help with; and some advise on maybe taking some form of supplement?
1, - Serum Folate 6.4 ug/L (> 4.5 ) not considered very low?
2, - Serum Ferritin 10 ug/L ( 15 - 300 ) LOW do I need to take these : Ferrous Sulphate Tablets 200mg? or not?
Haemoglobin - 110 g/L ( 130 - 180 ) LOW
I have the the results of FBC etc... post other results for advise later..
Thank You for any advise and guidance ..
