In Nov 18 I presented to my GP, anxiety, extreme tiredness, pins and needles in hands, extremely cold, ibs, headaches, brain fog. My blood tests revealed
B12 levels were 149 ng/l
Folate 2.7 ug/l
Vitamin D 43
My GP eventually agreed to a booster course of injections(5) the last one being on the 10th December and I was prescribed with 5mg folic daily til Jan. I have previously been tested for coeliac diseases but tested negative. I mentioned the instrinic factor test and was sent for this after the loading doses. This proved negative.
I have continuing symptoms and had a recent blood test on 23rd Jan 19 (some 6 weeks after the last loading dose) see above photo for results.
B12 levels were 511ng/l increased from previous test
Folate 6.6 ug/l increased from previous test
Vitamin D 39 Decreased from previous test
I have been prescribed Vitamin D tablets.
In relation to the B12 I have been told that as they cannot say whether it is a malabsorption (because of the neg result from instrinic factor) or diet related problem they will not continue with follow up injections and suggested I take a supermarket value range vitamin.
When I look at my B12 although it is now in range I would have expected it to be much higher as I had the loading doses. Do I need to pursue this further or do I assume I no longer have a B12 problem.
I was hoping to continue on the injections as I still have pins and needles in my hands and severe brain fog. The doctor as above has reaffirmed that I won't be receiving the B12 injections. What's the best B12 supplements I can get
Looking for advice many thabks
