Starting week 4 every other day b12 injections with weekends off.
My results today.....B12 >1100 (normal >133) I was originally at 114 which was considered borderline and <107 being deficient.
RBC folate ....1355 (normal>829...deficient anything below 340 nmol)
Ferritin....66 (range 15-50 depletion of iron stores, probable iron deficiency, 51-100 reduced iron stores, possible iron deficiency, 101-300 iron deficiency unlikely)
Normally my folate fluctuates between that and 2300 without supplements throughout the week) and ferritin was 66 which has dropped from 115 a month ago.So I finally got a level for all 3. I'm trying to balance them out as it doesn't seem too important to my doc so I'm taking it upon myself. He did say I am ok to take 400 of folate daily along with 28 mg of iron (ferrous bisglycinate). I'm afraid of taking more than that as I've never had an iron issue. I suppose it's better than nothing. I tried the 35 mg of ferrous glauconate but it bothers my stomach.
Also, my platelets have dropped a bit as well. Is this normal? Any advice would be appreciated as when I asked my doc how my blood work looked, his response....."pristine". 😳
