I’m at the beginning of research about b6, so my knowledge is limited. As regards b12, I have been diagnosed with PA for about 6 or 7 years I think now. I self inject hydroxocobalamin every week (initially every 2 days). Info on here about that has been so incredibly valuable, thank you.
I discovered by chance last week that I have a genetic thing called Morton’s toe, not the same as Morton’s neuroma. It’s a longer second toe and toe joint. Causes plantar fasciitis amongst other stuff, that’s how I came across it. Morton’s toe also means b6 can’t be converted into its useable form, called p5p or PLP.
People can have a high b6 level when tested because it’s sitting there unconverted and unused.
Symptoms of P5P deficiency apparently include some similar to b12 deficiency, also diabetes (which I have), and many of the dreadful menstrual problems I had when I was younger.
Age 51 I’m still learning so much about how my body works! I just thought it might be useful to share in case others have this too.
I’ve spent 1.5 months on keto and yesterday came off insulin, I’m so happy about this. With any luck the P5P supplements will allow some reintroduction of carbs... I’ll be cautious, but I miss baked potatoes, pasta, cake...
