I have been B12 deficient for at least 18 months and likely 5 years.
After endless testing, I was negative for pretty much everything.
Only a collapse in London earlier this year triggered more testing and now it appears that I have been tested for every possible cause, latterly Pituitary Tumour.
Everything is negative but still I have B12 deficiency that is effectively treated.
We all want a firm diagnosis of the cause, me included, but I have come to terms that this is not likely to happen. So, I have non specific B12 deficiency.
By process of elimination, the only possible cause, although unproven was a biome that was destroyed by years of emergency antibiotics.
This has been resolved by using Symprove probiotic. I have zero intention of ceasing my B12 supplements and 2 monthly injections, just to find out, some years down the line whether this has resolved my B12 absorption issues.
Since taking the Symprove, I have comments about my skin looking healthier than it has for years, no more IBS and no more 24/7 abdominal pain.
Now happy, healthy and full of energy.
