This is my first time on this forum, I have hashimotos and PBC and recently my b12 and folate levels are not good and I’m wondering what could be the symptoms as with having hashimotos it’s hard to tell the difference. My symptoms main ones are poor sleep! Lack of motivation and energy and night sweats. I am post menopause. My levels used to be mid to upper in the range but since November last year they have dropped. I have a hiatus hernia and digestive issues that doc put me on nexium. I was on 20mgs for about 14months and I have been reducing gradually and now I’m on 5 mugs and hope to come off it soon.
November 17.....folate 5 (3.o-26.8 ) b12 366 (197-771 )
December 17.... folate 3.3 slightly haemolysed b12 349
January 18... folate. 4.4. B12 356
May 18........folate 4.2 b12 390
These levels are within range so I’m not sure if they would cause symptoms.
From January I supplemented with liquid folate but not b12 which I know is not good from reading this website. In May my levels had not gone up much.
Any information would be gratefully accepted.
