Hey guys..... I could use Some advice on vitamins. I was diagnosed about a year ago with b12 deficiany and megloblastic aenemia I have been taking ferrous fermerate 322mcg 2x daily I have been on high dose folic acid for several years and I'm getting my b12 shots.since joining this forum and thyroid forum I have learned to take my iron tabs with Vit C to help absorption and lesson the diarrhoea. I was very low in Vit D but only just out of the magic "blood range" so I have been taking a Vit D and have just purchased some K2 to take with those. First question I picked up some Vit C today and they have got zinc in as well, is that OK to take? Second question is.... If I have an absorption problem / IF problem ( have never had a diagnosis of PA) or been IF antibody tested. Will I be absorbing the added vitamins in the usual way? I have been on metformin for a lot of years and also take omeprazole!! As my thinking is, if I am deficient in some vitamins due to poor absorption then does it follow that I will be deficient in all vits
