Hello, I'm so glad I stumbled across this site as I actually thought I was going mad with how I was feeling (to be fair there is still a possibiity of that!) however on seeing I had the exact symptoms as so many of you , I went to the Drs and was actually delighted to be told I had a B12 deficiency. I have just finished my 1st week of injections and whilst there today asked for a copy of my results. I'm not yet sure where they are in relation to 'normal' ranges as I havent yet done my research but they look like this:
Folate - 10.2ug/L
Serum Vitamin B12 155ng/L
MCV - 92.9fL
I have a whole page worth of others, but I dont want to send you to sleep on my first post as I am not sure which are relevant or not...
One thing I am unsure of however, is how do I know if I just have a B12 deficiency or PA? Is there something in those results that are likely to tell me? The Dr hasnt really explained the difference, but just mentioned the possibility of it being auto-immune or not. I am seeing the HCA for my injections , rather than the Dr and dont want to bombard the poor girl with my incessant questions, so thought I would do it to you instead!
Many thanks in advance
