I went for my 8 weekly B12 injection today, a few days early due to holiday when next one was due.
The nurse said I was not due one and anyway B12 injections should be every 12 weeks.
We moved last year and my previous GP prescribed 8 weekly. When I moved here, I continued with 8 weekly injections with a three month break when I tried the tablets. I also have Coeliac disease and underactive thyroid. The tablets didn't agree with me and so was allowed to revert to injections.
I now have to have a blood test before I have the next injection and they will decide if I am allowed to have 8 weekly injections.
My previous GP agreed with the expert info on the PA site that 'normal' test results are not the same for everyone. Also different parts of the country have different criteria.
I've been having 8 weekly injections for about 3 years now so why the change?
My previous GP said that having the 8 weekly injections would do no harm but today I was told you can have too much. Anyone any ideas?
