Can anyone explain how I can have a low serum B12 level 284 ng/L reference range (223 - 1132) and yet my serum folate was 14.8 ug/L (4.6 - 18.7)?
I thought that being low in B12 was linked with folate as they work in synergy. A simple explanation will suffice please!
I was supplementing for 3 months with sublingual spray from well known shop but didn't really feel any benefit (1200 ug) daily yet my GP is not convinced that the random pin prick / stabbing all over including my eye balls is related to this at all.
My rheumatologist asked last week why my GP has not started me on injections (in light to the fact I am hypothyroid and coeliac and under investigation for UCTD)!! Also,there are autoimmune conditions galore in my family and my grandma had pernicious anaemia.
I decided to stop taking the sublingual on 30th January so that I could order an active B12 test. This is now 6 weeks and so do you think this a good plan?
Thanks in advance
