Just returned from Hospital Appointment to see Gastro, at request of my G.P`s, one who does not think I have a B12 issue, and another who will not agree to alternate day jabs without ok from Hospital because afraid of overdosing issues ( he quoted side affects from his BNF book ).
The Gastro said that positive IFA & Parietal cell antibodies can lead to P.A. but does not mean I already have P.A. ?????
Gastro arranging to test for H.Pylori / Coeliac / and Gastritis , and cannot recommend B12 jabs until she sees proof . I was under the impression that a positive IFA antibody test WAS PROOF ?
I am not prepared to wait forever for treatment, so will start self injecting immediately and join the rest of the thousands forced into doing so.
