Hey everyone. Thanks to peoples help here and some research into things, I know that my recent blood test result of182ng/l for B12 is too low. So I've got an appointment with my GP in a few days to discuss.
Thanks to hampster1, I know to take the BCSH guidelines and I should be tested for anti-intrinsic factor / anti-parietal cells. I should also be looking to get a loading dose of 6 injections over the course of two weeks (after the tests).
Now the problem is I don't like needles...especially if they have to put them into your muscle, it's not nice. Two others in my family have had B12 injections in the past and they have said it isn't particularly pleasant, and they don't mind needles!
So can the loading doses be taken by tablets or sublingually, or am I just being a coward?
