How would you interpret the results below of someone who has been supplementing with folic acid and Borocca for months?
- Serum vitamin B12 325 pg/mL
- Serum folate >20.0 ng/mL
GP said results are normal and that apparent B12 deficiency symptoms are not related. I interpret these as concerning when the use of supplements is considered.
Some of the reported Symptoms;
- Shortness of breath on mild exertion
- Cold extremities
- Ridged and brittle nails
- Low mood
- Inability to concentrate
- Weight gain
- Pins and needles in hands/arms when waking in the morning
- Waking up feeling tired
Symptoms have been worsening over 3 years.
