Hi everyone New to this community and first time posting. I'm a 68yr old male.
Just recently diagnosed with clinically significant B12 and Folate deficiency also IFA negative. We are almost 100% sure I do not have PA , rather my body cannot make B12 which we think could be related to long term PPI use. Symptoms etc have been around for a number of years. Since B12 dosing feel much improved and GP has put me on a 3 month B12 top-up program. Currently taking 5mg folic acid. Just had my levels checked and they are at the top end of the range . Due to see my GP next week for a review.
The question I have : if I self prescribe maintainance doses of B12 is sublingual as effective muscle injection ?
This a very informative site and I have already extended my knowledge from the posts of the admin and community team. Thank you. Neil
