Hi PA society,
Thank you for existing, there seems to be people much more informed than the average doctor. I apologize if these questions are answered on the forum already, I have looked through but thought someone would have updated advice.
strange symptoms led to a random b12 test and folic acid test which came back 243/11 pg, unfortunately I started supplementing without further testing, intrinsic cell and parietal cell was done about 1 month after supplementation and came back negative
1. I have read on this forum it is not good idea to supplement the folic until the b12 is being supplemented, unfortunately too late, should I stop folic now? could that have made me feel worse?
2. I have also read on the forum that one should take b12 as part of a host of b vitamins..
3. I am supplementing (I have had neurological symptoms) but as many others have mentioned, I have a doctor who only believes in a once a month shot, how do I know how much I need? the journey doesn't always feel upward (or fast) which I have also read here... so it is really hard to judge.....
(also straightening out some thyroid issues if that helps for the big picture)
Thanks much in advance
