Hi everyone , I hope one of you well informed people out there can help me . I posted in February after having B12 levels again, but my gp would not start course of injections as it was within normal range at 243 (200-900). I stopped all supplements and had re-tested at end April, reading now 210 (200-900). It has gone down by 33 points since Feb, and to my mind, will continue to do so. I called for results, was told again, it was within normal range. I have apt to see gp at end May, but as I am feeling pretty horrible at moment think it will be sooner. I have so many symptoms that could be related to B12 deficiency. I am a type 2 diabetic, have coeliac disease, MGUS, GERD, and osteoarthritis. (I feel sure my gp thinks I am a hypochondriac ( maybe you've also experienced that) . I have been taking Omeprazole for many years ( a PPI) , and also Metformin for at least the last 5 years.But I want to go armed with as much info as possible to take to my gp, but there is so much that I don't know which is best. Have any of you had success on presenting info to gp , mine is normally quite understanding, but I feel she is digging her heels in about this
