Hello, im needing help.
I had 1000 mcg of cyno injected on 5/22, 5/30, 6/5, 6/12, 6/16, 6/19, 6/30, 7/5, 7/10. Total of 9 injections. Stopped so i could have testing done 7/27/17 for basically everything.
Importaant results were IFA negative, i know its not reliable. Serum B12 814 pg/ml. This was after only 17 days since last injection. It was concerning compared to other posts i have read on this forum showing levels above 1500 or 2000.
I started injections again, due to still feeling poorly. Those were on 8/2, 8/7, 8/18.
This is when i received test results showing positive for h pylori. I took antibiotic treatment and after antibiotics i also used homepatic helpers of berberine, pumpkin seed oil pills, probiotics, and zinc. Thought/hoped i would start being able to absorb b12 through my gut normally again. Still felt crap so resumed injections, These began 9/13, 9/20, 9/28, 10/2, 10/9, 10/16.
Stopped injections again, thinking/hoping this would increase my level sufficiently, since i have been treated for h pylori. I did start taking iron daily on 10/27/17 as i still felt general fatigue. Seemed to help as i was moving and was able to clean, paint and move without feeling like death. Tested serum b12, 32 days after last injection, on 11/17/17.
B12 677 pg/ml.
The lab lost my h pylori test to verify if it is gone or not so i retook that breath test again on 11/22/17. Of course no results yet.
Why would my b12 level be at 677 pg/ml after 18 injections?
Im super frustrated.
I tried to go get a b12 shot recently but the place was closed Wed afternoon, due to Thanksgiving being the next day. Now i am wondering if i should try to wait another 30 days without an injection to see how much my level drops in 30 more days. But that seems scary as my balance, energy and of course concentration arent great as it is.
Special note to clivealive Finally got my folate checked for first time. They dont normally check this in U.S. i guess because our food is fortified. Folate was >24. Range >5.4 ng/ml
