I was diagnosed with B12 deficiency and Vit D deficiency in 2013. Once on 8 weekly injections and 2500 is of vitD3 I felt so much better. However, in 2016 I felt myself going down hill rapidly. My doctor feels it’s not the B12 deficiency causing my symptoms...I.e fatigue, tinnitus, pins and needles, light sensitivity etc. I had some blood tests done ( only a few days after my b12 injection ) and I am baffled by the results.
My homocysteine level was 9.9,
My MCH 32, MCV 95.5 MCHC 345 My potassium was 5.1 Creatinine 80umol/L
Zinc 13 (borderline )
My understanding is that B12 should reduce levels of Homocysteine, MCH and potassium ( which I understand can be depleted quite significantly after b12 injections) I haven’t had my folate levels checked recently but they were 8.0 about a year ago. Also a recent blood film examination revealed occasional atypical lymphocyte.
Incidentally, I was also diagnosed with a Multinodular Goitre about 18months ago which my Metabolic Specialist says I am borderline thyrotoxicosis. My recent TSH levels have been 0.31 - 0.58 and my serum thyroxine 20.9.
I would so appreciate your thoughts on this. Do you think any of these results are attributing to my feeling so unwell.
Many , many thanks.
