I have private health insurance and my private haematologist did a number of tests. I requested a B12 active test but he tested my B12 serum level my intrinsic factor antibodies and my parietal selves. This is not what I wanted as what is happening is my results came back at 1200 for my B12 level but I have heard and been told by professional Laboratories both in Manchester and London that up to 80% of this serum B12 level is not active in your body. Can anyone shed some light on this is 20% which is a maximum level of B12 comes out at 240 which I believe is far below the minimum level for B12 used by the NHS so now I am struggling to get a decent diagnosis. Has anybody got anything to say on this as I am really confused
