I was tested for Intrinsic Factor in August, by GP previously gave me B12 and folic acid tablets.
Due to my thyroid problems etc, all my blood results are posted on my patient access site so that I can see them.
My IF is not there, when enquiring at the surgery I have had several conflicting answers:
"all your results are ok" - that old chestnut
"its not been done" - the lady taking the blood told me what was being tested?
"we don't know why the GP asked for that" is this relevant? and just yesterday
"oh its pending, if the result is no back by next week call us"!
How long does this test take, and also what are the ranges please. My mother has B12 injections every 3 months, her GP (just as evasive) said its due to diet and immune problems?
Thanks in advance for all help and guidance
