Recently you good people explained how my vitamin B 12 was way too low...it was somewhere in the 280 region (reference 225 - 1100).
I am seeing my GP in the week and I need to be knowledgeable. As well as having coeliac disease and an underactive thyroid, I have been diagnosed with UCTD: recently I have been right in the middle of a bad flare - my joint pain has been terrible.
I was wondering whether my low B12 could be affecting my joints. I have been taking joint ace multi vitamin with vitamin D3 and vitamin b12. Clearly it did not raise my vit D so I have taken a sublingual and now I have achieved a good result (101). I have found out recently, despite this multi vit supplement, my B12 is still so low... I have been very unaware until discovering this site that this was so important!
My grandmother had pernicious anaemia... Could this be a factor?
How can I tell if I have B12 deficiency or pernicious anaemia? All suggestions on this would be gratefully received.
