The GP promised to do MMA test on my son and it was not done. However his b12 has dropped from 282 to 196, his vit D is 33, his folates have dropped from >23.2 to 17.6 and his ALT is 57. This is all screaming B12 def but the GP says lets retest in 2 months. Um no I have an apt with him on Monday and he will be told my son needs treating then we are switching practices. I am getting sick of this now. My youngest may also be b12 def (at least that is what I am hoping with ALTs of 397, skewed results due to b12 def is far more desirable than liver disease). That is 3 of us not able to get the treatment we need, and I am not sure I want to be injecting my children every other day (plus I would never do it without the loading doses being done at the surgery). Hubby is also concerned that he has gastritis and is on antacids but there has been no follow up (like checking b12 levels) and he has degenerative lumbar disease but he has had no follow up. This surgery does not seem to look after its patients.
