I took a private blood test, also a test with the NHS in order to get diagnosed with hypothyroidism. The result of the private blood tests indicate that I am very low on B12 (87). Will include screenshot of my private test results. My gp treated my hypo, a vit D Deficiency, and a folate Deficiency with Levothyroxine, fultium d3, and folic acid, but basically ignored my B12. I plan to go back to the gp and question this, but would it be better to self treat? She seemed quite unconcerned that my B12 was so low.
Can I take B12 supplements in the meantime till I get an appointment? Which are the best ones to take with a gut absorption problem?
To note, I am having a few symptoms of B12 Deficiency, but they are so similar to the Thyroid Symptoms, its so hard to tell which is which. Occasionally I get the tingling in hands and feet, mostly it's just fatigue all the time, tinnitus, some dizziness and balance issues, and brain fog.
