Could I ask your opinion please on iron? There are two conflicting views: B12 injections bring down iron levels and B12 will help absorption of iron and therefore increase them. I don’t have and never had macrocytosis. If iron, like potassium, is used in the formation of red blood cells only if there is macrocytosis, does it imply I don’t need to worry about iron? Or, is iron used by all B12 injections? Related to this, will B12 injections work if my iron level is low?
I don't really need advice on iron supplementation or iron testing - it's all in hand. I also know people are not medically trained but if anyone could give me their best guess I'd appreciate it - there seems to be a lot of sense written on here. thank you
