B12 results

I have been very tired in the run up to my injection so the doctor asked me to have a blood test just before my injection was due. I did this on Tuesday & got my injection this morning. The results from the blood test showed my B12 as normal (560 range 200-900). My question is will this be total B12 or active B12? I have heard this term used but not sure what it means but like some information before I go back to see GP. Thanks.

Thank you. Very helpful. I just trying to get my argument in order before I see him. I hate the word normal ... it seems to be his standard response.

the main point to try and get across is that the fact that you have had B12 shots introduces a factor that means that the normal B12 range really doesn't apply anymore

might be worth pointing them at the area on the PAS forum that is particularly aimed at medical professionals.
