Hi, My partner has just got blood test results
B12 is 187 (180 -1000).
Also his iron is fairly low 62 (25 - 350).
Folate lowish too 4.5 (> 4.0)
Back in 2012 his B12 was 177 and the GP did nothing! I gave him Jarrow formulas methyl B12. 5000Micrograms daily. Then when his B12 reached 600 I kept him on a maintenance dose of 1000 daily. About 10 months ago when our life got extremely busy he stopped taking the B12 and his B12 has come right down to 187.
The Dr has asked for another blood test in 2 weeks time and then to see her as there is a very high Eosinophil count also been high for 4 years!
His symptoms include tiredness, problems with memory, understanding and judgement. Also mood swings and anger.
My question is What other tests should we be asking for in order to establish pernicious anaemia or not!
Would be much obliged if any one could help. Thank you in advance.
