Hi , so I went to my GP because I'm always tired , never wanting to do anything and very forgetful , I would wonder around my house looking for something but I couldn't remember what. it was bad, so I asked my GP to check my b12 and iron, my iron was fine but my b12 was only 131 , so my GP told me I needed a shot once a month and in 3 months it should be normal. I had an appointment with my GI doc and he was looking at my file and said my b12 was fine. and then an other doc at emergency told me I should be getting a shot weekly. so 3 docs and 3 different opinions . so I talked to my GP again and he was sure once a month was fine.. So I go for blood work 4 months later and my b12 only came up to 141 and my GP is baffled as to why its still low . I have celiac and that runs hand in hand with b12 so I know why it was low but I'm not sure why it hasn't came up to normal yet with the shots as its bypassing my stomach altogether . can anyone help me understand
