Some advice needed please...
Almost 2 years ago I was very symptomatic (brain fogs, tiredness, mouth ulcers etc), and had a B12 reading of 127 (range 180-900). I fought hard to get B12 injections. Tests for Intrinsic Factor and Parietal Cells came back negative and the Dr and haematologist have both dismissed it as just one spurious reading and nothing to worry about (B12 tests since then have always come back very high due to the B12 injections).
I have also been iron deficiency anemic, so pushed hard to get a referral to gastroenterology as everything seemed to point towards some sort of absorption issue. I had a colonoscopy and gastroscopy in August and they took loads of biopsies, the results have come back as normal - no signs of atrophy, coeliac or helicobacter.
So does this mean that there are no absorption issues?
Are the GP's right when they say the B12 and iron deficiencies aren't caused by anything and I don't need ongoing treatment?
If it was Pernicious Anaemia, would the camera work and biopsies have shown something?
I have a healthy diet, am not vegetarian and am otherwise fit and healthy.
Thanks for your help.
