This is my first post on the PA forum. I was diagnosed at the beginning of January and had my loading doses in February. Ist 12 week injection due next week- yipee!! can hardly wait.
Now to my question: does anyone else have bleeding gums, nose bleeds and bleed well when you cut your self? Are these PA symptoms or could it be that i'm lacking in Vitamin K?
My blood test level for B12 was 101ng/L with normal range listed as (150-1000). I was told by the nurse that I tested positive for the intrinsic factor but I haven't seen the results. I'm currently supplementing with sublingual drops as I don't feel that the initial injections have worked.
My folate level was 7.2ug/L (2.0-18.8) range. I was told this was normal.
My Vitamin D level was low i can't find the letter for the range but the doctor said I could take supplements if I wanted to. I am taking 25ug of vitamin D3 daily.
I have an under active thyroid which I've had for 15 years. I have lots of other symptoms, pins and needles, tinnitus, aches and pains, stomach problems,- I could like others go on, but I don't want to sound like a hypochondriac.
I'm thinking of supplementing Vitamin K, any advice? If so what is considered a safe dose?
