Hi, firstly many thanks for all the help and advice I've had from these sites. I've discovered low ferritin, low vitamin d and now have the B12 results. I wasn't contacted about the MMA test, so presumed everything was okay and that it was back to the drawing board! Receptionist said No action on Friday, so thanks to your previous advice picked up my printout today!
It says the MMA result suggests functional vitamin b12 deficiency/ insufficiency at the tissue level providing renal function is not impaired. It also states MMA can be elevated independently of vitamin B12 deficiency, eg thyroid disease, inherited M acid urial intestinal bacterial overgrowth or hemoconcentratuon.
I'm going to contact St Thomas to see what they suggest, but am thinking I need to ask my Doctor for the IF and parietal test? Can anyone suggest anything else I need to get checked please as obviously my Doctor hasn't!
My B12 was 262 when it was last checked in August and has taken since then to get the Active B12 sorted! I
I've been feeling so rotten for so long, ( diagnosed ME 16 years ago) had 10 months of recurring sinus ear infections again last year. Since 3 antibiotics in a row prior to Vhristmas then a weird migraine, have continued to feel rotten ever since. Balance has worsened, vision problems, weakness down one side, breathlessness, awful brain fog, stomache pain, exhaustion, the list could go on!
I am fuming that I've had to find these results via a printout, but not at all surprised. But on the other hand am incredibly hopeful I may have discovered something that could finally help.
Would really appreciate your help and advice once more please.
