I have recently received my B12 results from Medichecks-
ACTIVE B12 49.700 pmol/L 37.50 - 188.00
VITAMIN B12 194 pmol/L 140.00 - 724.00
Folate is pretty low too
FOLATE (SERUM) 6.64 ug/L 3.89 - 26.80
and Ferritin is 40.9 ug/L 13.00 - 150.00
I have ME/CFS and my Paternal Grandmother had PA. I have a strict vegetarian diet and a lot of symptoms that it is difficult to say if these are ME or B12 including migraines, IBS, tiredness, premature grey, tinnitus etc.
The Medichecks doctor has advised me to supplement with B12 for 3 months after which, if the levels come up fine, if not more testing for an absorption problem. How much would you recommend to take and when should I stop it for the retest?
Can anyone advise what I should do in March if the levels are low- IFA or MMA and if the current level is a worry?
