Am I doing any harm?


hi up until recently & and after a long battle with my doctors I had monthly injections (hydro) I’ve recently moved and now having the same battle (which I knew i probably would) as they wanted blood tests and b12 around the 1000 mark.... anyway not a problem as my partner also does my injections which a family member gets me from her chemist in Cyprus (methylcobal 1ml ampules he injects subcutaneously into my thigh) I read lots of posts on here which are sometimes a lot to take in which the brain fog doesn’t help but was just wondering if mixing 2 different kinds of injection could be doing more harm than good? Was also wondering how people put their blood test results on here can I take a photo? Many thanks

Hi Pittman personally I have injections of cyanocobamalin 1mg every three weeks and spray Methycobamalin in between times and I'm still "clivealive" and over 75 :)

Make sure your Folate level is OK as that and the B12 help your iron to make red blood cells and to function properly in your body.

You can add a photo only at the beginning of any new post on here.

I am not a medically trained person but I've had P.A. (a form of B12 deficiency) for more than 45 years.

I wish you well

😊 thank you clivealive I can’t see folate level on test result i did ask for that to be done and other tests rather than the bog standard one, thank you for your reply I will start another post 👍🏻


no problems with mixing different types of B12 that I'm aware of - I use a mix of all 4 types - cyano, hydroxo, methyl and adenosyl - through a mix of delivery methods.

Thank you, just not feeling myself recently and a few aches & pains that I never had before (hip pain) plus vertigo hitting me which I’ve never suffered with before, maybe nothing to do with b12 but looking into things anyway

some people don't respond well to methyl. would you be able to source additional hydroxo and see if that solves the additional symptoms?
