Hi i have pernicious anemia and Hashimoto's and am being treated for both on the NHS. I also take extra b12 injections with the guidance of a private GP because my b12 was horrendously low (30) at diagnosis and my NHS GP overlooked the every other day protocol.
I was iron and vit d deficient as well but these have now been treated and are well within the optimal range.
The only test I haven't had done was serum folate, so I have just had a private test done and the result came back high (>20, range 3.9->20.0 ug/l). I have read high folate is often the case with PA, but I am unsure what this result means as the lab just says to re-test in a month. I am supplementing 400ug of folic acid in the multivitamin I take. I also have a mainly veggie diet with some fish.
I would be extremely grateful for any advice. Thank you.
