I am new to this site and have been doing lots of reading on it. My word, what a supportive bunch!
I am 35 years old and since having a child almost 3 years ago, I've had issues with my B12.
I am lucky enough to be able to have frequent blood tests to check my levels and I'm pretty much able to know what reading I'm at before being tested by the way I feel, which is then later confirmed by the bloods.
I need weekly to bi weekly injections and if I fall behind with this, I need two or three in a week to boost me back up. I am ok if my levels are about 600. 400 i start feeling overwhelmed, exhausted, unable to cope daily. If I drop to anything below 300 I cant function due to severe fatigue and affects me enormously mentally.
My issue is, why do my levels drop so rapidly??
All other bloods are always checked and are good. Colonoscopy and gastroscopy both good. Ive been told its just my body doesnt seem to absorb it at all. Its not diet related.
Within 4 weeks my levels drop from 1500 to 600... 2 weeks later I wasnt coping at all and it must have plummeted further.
Just wondering if this rings true for anyone else or if anyone could shed any light.
Any other advice would be normously appreciated as I just dont understand why this is happening... and continuing to happen.
