Hi i have just heard from my doctor as ive been waiting for a decision about whether to start b12 injections. Gp has said that he needs further advice and blood specialist has asked for details of other medication and oral contraceptive as this could be causing reduced b12 levels. My b12 has been around 170-180 for a while symptoms for about a year at least now.
I have had a quick look online and can see oral contraceptives can lower levels but nothing to say by how much and whether i should still be treated so any insights welcomed!
Me and my other half are happy to just try no pill for a while if it will help but dont want to be fobbed off or have treatment delayed if its what i need - they have been really dragging their heels about diagnosis so ive just been having blood tests for almost a year with no action.
