I recently posted about feeling symptomatic despite receiving my B12 injections on a 6-weekly basis. I decided to get a blood test done privately which included comprehensive thyroid testing plus Vit D, Ferritin etc.
It turns out that my B12 is normal as you would expect, but I have low Folate levels, insufficient Vit D, and raised CRP. Not sure what the cause of the latter could be, but I have had a lot of trouble with bladder infections over the last couple of years, and a private urine test I had done a few months revealed the presence of bacteria though I was not symptomatic, so perhaps it is related to this. I did tell my GP and Urologist about this, but they dismissed it.
Anyway, I was just wondering whether anyone could please help with the folate and maybe Vit D deficiencies? I have an appointment with my GP on Thursday so will take my results along with me, but I have a feeling I might have to sort this out myself, or further supplement anything she may prescribe.
Glad I got the test done now after years of being told "your bloods are normal, bye" and not receiving any further input!
