Supplements to B12 injection regime
Most people require B12 injections atleast once a month, so if three monthly wasn't bad enough (the standard treatment), six monthly was a very bad decision and you will get much much worse. There is no point in monitoring B12 levels as if you are diagnosed with PA, your levels will drop back down if you don't receive regular B12 injections. What you need to do is get yourself onto monthly injections and take a supplement of folic acid everyday, the folic acid donates a methyl group to the hydroxocobalamin, which then converts it to methylcobalamin (pure transportive form of B12). Unfortunately, it is very unlikely you will convince any GP that you need more regular injections, so the only alternative is to go private. If you join the Pernicious Anaemia Society on our homepage www.pernicious-anaemia-soci... we can give you the contact details of a private doctor we work closely with. He can provide you with a supply of B12 and teach you how to self-inject.
