Would anyone be able to suggest a B12 supplement for me to take while I wait for an appointment with a functional doctor? I have hashimotos and terrible gut problems. I am heterozygous for C677T and A1298C. In a previous post I gave all my readings from a recent blood test, here just to summarise, my serum vitamin B levels are 817 (norm is 200-770)) and my serum ferritin is 10 (norm is 13-150), my serum iron is 13.2 (norm is 13-32) and % saturation of iron is 17% and my haemotocritin is 0.361 (norm is 0.39 to 0.44). I asked this question on the thyroid forum and they suggested I ask on the pernicious anaemia one.
I have already tried Biocare's methyl folguard twice now. once over the last 2 days, both times it hasn't worked for me. This time it seemed to make my gut feel absolutely terrible, so I stopped taking it. The ingredients of the Biocare's methyl folguard is drops taken in water, active ingredients are methyl hydrofolic acid and methylcobalamin.
Is there something relatively fail safe I can try, that perhaps by passes my stomach, in spray or sublingual form? Should I perhaps try a hydroxy cobalmyn product? I had blood tests done recently and my b12 levels were very hight above the norm and all the irons very low. Is there anything else I can do while I wait? E.g. take iron every day (liquid spa tone say)?
And anything else people would recommend my help my symptoms?
Thanks a lot!
