Hi everyone, I'm new here and would welcome some advice on my daughters blood test results. She's 25, has a normal diet - meat, veg and fruit but has ongoing stomach problems going back to when she had Glandular Fever at 18, is always tired, has cold hands and feet and very pale skin. Recently been told she has gastritis and has been prescribed PPI lansoprozole. Her blood test results show:
Serum Ferritin 59 ng/ml
Vit B12 199
Serum Folate 12.5 ug/L
All her other results appear to be within the normal NHS ranges apart from Eosinophils 0.41 10 9/L which is highlighted (range shown 0.0 to 0.4)
Both myself and my mother are unable to absorb B12 from food so have injections every 3 months. Am I right in thinking that B12 deficiency can run in families and that injections could help her too. Our GP just keeps telling her she's depressed!
