I just received a copy of my blood test results and am hoping you all can help me understand. When I met with my gp last week he said I had b12 anemia and so started me on a 2500mcg Daily Dose. However, my results don't seem to match.
Mch 25 (27-34)
Mchc 30.3 (31-37)
B12 268 (232 - 1245)
Hemoglobin is in the normal-low range at 12 (12-16) and all other cbc counts are within normal limits, including mcv. It was my understanding that you need hemoglobin to be low in order to be anemic, and b12 causes high mch/mchc not low. If it matters, I do have quite low vitamin d at 15 (prescribed 50,000iu weekly) and high cholesterol at 167. I'm 31, female, workout and not overweight. Also should maybe note that my iron levels were not measured, and tsh is normal but "not ideal" at 3 (.45-4.5).
I originally went to my GP complaining of chest pains, arm numbness, extreme daily exhaustion, new anxiety, intolerance to loud and repetitive noises, dizziness, forgetfulness and breathlessness. I obviously don't want to go back and tell him he might be wrong, but I would really like to feel normal again asap.
Thank you all for any insight you might have!!
