I am male, 38 years old, from Brazil.
I am not supplementing b12 when I did these blood tests. I tested for serum b12 and serum MMA and get this results:
B12: 997 pg/ml Ref: 211 – 911
Folic Acid: 21,3 ng/ml Ref: > 5,38
Methyl Malonic Acid: 0,62 umol/L Ref: 0,08 – 0,56
So, I have high b12 whit high MMA without supplementing b12.
So, whit these results, I starting taking methylb12, 5.000 mcg, but stopped because I fell more tired whit this. So take 1.000 mcg of hydroxocobalamin instead and fell a little better, but not symptoms free.
My symptoms are:
- Low body temperature
- Pain, heaviness on legs
- Liquid sperm (I am sterile now)
Did other blood test, now taking hydroxob12, and my serum b12 goes to > 2.000 pg/ml. Don’t tested MMA this time.
Can I don’t have a b12 deficiency but other disease that increase MMA?
