I recently had 6 loading injections of B12, my next injection is due in 3 months.
In a few weeks’ time, I’m due to have a thyroid function test. I’m a bit nervous about having the thyroid test, as I’m not sure if they also test you for B12 at the same time? Obviously I’m expecting my B12 levels to be nice and high, due to all the recent injections, and I’m scared that if any doctor (other than my usual GP, who arranged the B12 injections) sees the results, they may think “blimey, this patient has very high B12, let’s take her off injections”.
I may ring the surgery, speak to my usual GP, just to see if (a) B12 gets tested during a thyroid function test; and (b) if I can arrange for the results to go straight back to her, as she knows the history. But I just wondered if anyone here could help, to save me ringing the surgery?
I’m feeling fine at the moment, so I suspect my thyroid levels are OK, in which case I may decide not to have a blood test and avoid potentially rocking the boat ……
I’m posting this in both the Thyroid and the B12 areas of Health Unlocked, I hope that’s OK.
