While I was at my Dr's this morning I asked him about self injecting (which I now do every other day or so), he still said the NHS guideline is still every 3 months. So I told him to check the latest guidelines regarding every 2/3 months. Apparently they have to wait till NICE tell them & he hasn't heard anything other than 3 months!?
He didn't agree but he didn't disagree with me SI after telling me my B12 level was 125 when diagnosed in April 2018 & after I told him that once diagnosed, it doesn't make any difference what your B12 levels are, he now wants me to have my B12 level checked!!
But, the thing that totally blew me away was this. I asked him why my prescription of Folic acid was stopped last month, as I had been diagnosed with Folate & B12 deficiency, along with Pernicious Anemia. I said I thought I was supposed to take 400ug of Folic acid per day to help with the B12. "Yes that's correct" he said. So why was it stopped then? His reply was "To save the NHS money"
It was all I could do not to swear & rant so I just laughed & shrugged my shoulders.
I knew the UK under this Pathetic government was struggling but, is this country really in such a bad way!???
