Waste of time

Went to Doctors this morning asked if he would do bloods for Vitamins and b12 said i didnt need them and to stop chasing my blood results as everything was fine from last year ..Then he gave me a form to have B12 done but nothing else ,he took my blood pressure which was 155/85 and asked when i last had an ecg ,so got one booked in with the nurse in 2 weeks .I should have stayed at home for what use he was lol what makes of b12 and vitamins would you suggest to get may energy ..thanks

Oh well done! - I wonder why the reluctance for 'mere' vitamins :)

- my GP wouldn't even entertain B12 so I went and got a private active test from thyroiduk.org.uk/tuk/testin...

£57 with discount

Vit D test £28 (NHS lab) here..

vitamindtest.org.uk/

you may notice I go the 'easy' route.... :D

Sue, they aren't clickable you have to type : - D etc without the spaces. Hovering over the smilies will tell you what to type.

Thanks for that Clutter - it's amazing what you learn on this forum. It took me years to do :)

I'm glad you are sorting it sweetie.

I take 'boost' B12 under-tongue spray (it bypasses stomach issues)

at 400+ I don't think I need B12 injections.

Yet I cannot use my numb hands/fingers first thing - since years -

funny how one adapts.....

Cheap is'nt always bad :)

smilies... others have ones provided by their phones, yet I type on an ol' fashioned PC and use colon : and bracket ) to create :)

or colon : and D to create :D

there's more but I don't tend to use them... J x

I searched for my local pathology services (coventry) for the shortened names for blood tests. my doctor said I could add anything on that I needed, so I did!!!

Your GP sounds like an absolute tool. You are entitled to your results under DPA. It is your perogative.
