Hi all, never posted before but have been reading on here after my symptoms pointed to a B12 deficiency (chronic fatigue, memory loss, balance problems etc etc) I first went the drs a year ago and was told I had low vitamin D and was given vitamin D tablets. Symptoms have been getting worse if anything so went back and had my bloods done again 2 weeks ago.
I've had my blood tests back and at the doctor's yesterday he's now prescribed me iron and vitamin D and told me to take over the counter vit C, folic acid and vit B, but I've been taking (a lower dose granted) iron, vitamin D, b complex for nearly 7 months and it hasn't made a difference. Would appreciate your thoughts on my results and if you think I should go back?
VIT D combined - 39 mmol/mol (>75nmol/L)
Folate - 5.6 (3.90-26.80)
Ferritin - 14 (13.00-150.00)
VIT B12 - 290 (200-770)
I have other results but I'm not sure what's relevant, i mean, which one is related to the folic acid?
I'm just so tired of it all, I'm only 36 but I feel about 90! He's said to come back in 3 months but I don't want to waste/wait 3 months if it's not just the iron/vitamin D.
Many thanks in advance for any help x
