Hi just looking some advice. Last April i was told i had a Vit B12 deficiency. At the time all i was told was it was not diet related and i would need injections for the rest of my life. After looking this up on the internet i came across PA. I asked the doctor if this was what i had and she basically said it probably was but the only way to diagnose it was a camera down the throat.
I get a injection every 3 months and the past few months i have started to feel a lot better, although i do notice myself deteriorating the last 2-3 weeks before my next injection but it is manageable. Have others found that it has took a year or 2 on the injections to get back to normal?
Is it normal to get bloods tested to check the level of Vit B12? I went to get my injection yesterday and the nurse said that after a year they would normally stop injections for 6 months so they could do a blood test. I said this was never mentioned to me and that i felt i couldn't go 6 months without getting my injection. I explained that i had bloods done a month ago for an unrelated issue. She said my vit b12 was high. I did get the injection but she said she would speak to the doctor before my next one. I'm concerned that they will stop the injections because of this high result despite me still having a lot of the symptoms.
