On reading posts it seems to be common that doctors don't give us reasons for B12 defiency. I understand about absorption problems.
I've been told I've not got megoblastic aneamia Hb 13 folate 9 ferriton level 60.
No antibody to intrinsic factor . Thyroid ok. Not got celilac disease. When I asked for more frequent injections I was refused on the above grounds. As in the NICE guidelines . I'm confused though as the test is only 50% accurate. It was the neurologist that stated I am to have 2 monthly injections. So how apart from the few who have antibodies how do you know why they are B12 defient or indeed have pernicious aneamia?
Also is it safe to take a multi vitamin with iron in if you don't think you need the iron?
Thanks if you can help with this confusion
