I was diagnosed with a B12 Deficiency 2 years ago in early August. I had 6 injections over 2 weeks, then was tested for PA which came back negative. My B12 was then tested again a couple of times and I was referred in December to a Gastroenterologist.
I went through a series of endoscopy tests (both ends and barium meal) and the gastro signed me off as needing injections for a year and then to come off them.
The problem is, I feel uncomfortable not having gotten to the bottom of why this has happened and what to do now. I'm not vegetarian and I do eat meat and dairy . My diet isn't perfect but it's not terrible and I now routinely take a multivit/mineral.
My last injection was in mid June.
What's the monitoring process for checking that my B12 remains at a decent level?
Also, should I come off any supplements I'm taking before having it tested again?
Previous experience showed it steadily dropping and I'm just afraid this is what's going to happen again and that I'll have to go through this procedure again. But equally I may just be a bit anxious about it.
Happy as I am that nothing gastro seems to be involved, my own piece of mind isn't great. Am I worrying about nothing?
