Hi I have just been diagnosed by my doctor as having low b12 and low folic acid. She said i need to get my folic acid levels up before she can treat my b12 and prescribed me a months course of folic acid then she wanted me to take another blood test. If everything was good with the folic she would then start treatment for the b12 ........ However when reading the instructions for the folic acid it states not to be taken if you have a b12 deficiency????? I rang my doctor but she is away ...... another doctor said not to take the folic acid but to take b12 tablets for 6 weeks then have a blood test. now I am totally confused as my first doctor said to get my levels of folic acid up before treating the b12.
What should I do ???
Should I just wait untill the first doctor who has been dealing with this is back from holiday?
