Hi Leigh6873 Is your daughter on antibiotics or other medication for her glandular fever. I don't know whether that would have an effect on the B12 injections but probably someone on here will know.

Perhaps your GP can be persuaded to give her extra injections, you could try suggesting it.

More B12 probably wouldn't help. Having a fever shouldn't affect B12 utilisation any more than it would in a normal person.

The only difference would be that the fatigue etc. from the GF will be on top of the fatigue etc. from the B12d. But I don't think there's much that can be done.
