I hope a quick Question
I Have PA, and 10 weekly injections (and autoimmune thyroiditis, Hashimotos diagnosed Dec 17)
folate levels found to have been low from blood tests back to Oct 16 when 7.6 (2.7-34) but was not treated
Folic acid was not added until Dec 17 when a Nov Blood test had showed a level of 6 (2.7-34) and was told to just take for 2 months (sorry by GP prescription so higher dose to over shelves but cannot remember actual dosage)
Bloods 2.2.18 - Folate level reported as > 20 (folic acid stopped)
Latest bloods 16.3.18 have shown it to have dropped again to 15.2 (2.7-34) so not low - mid range and not taking any folic acid meds
Is this a 'normal' sort drop to see following a short 2 month course of meds, or should the Folic Acid continue on a long term basis to maintain levels to help the B12 injections?
Any advice gratefully received
