Hi, firstly many thanks for all your help and advice I've had. I've discovered low ferritin, low vitamin and now this thanks to your help.
I wasn't contacted about needing MMA test, receptionist said No action on Friday, so assumed it was back to the drawing board, but thanks to learning otherwise on here picked up printout today!
It says MMA result suggests functional vitamin B12 deficiency/insufficiency at the tissue level ( providing renal function okay). It also states it can be raised due to thyroid, elevated bacterial overgrowth, etc.
I'm going to contact St Thomas to see what they suggest, but am thinking I need to request the IF and parietal test?
Can anyone suggest anything else that may need to be checked please?
My B12 was 262 in August, but it's taken this long to get Active B12 sorted. Have been feeling rotten for so long ( diagnosed ME 16 years ago) had 10 months of recurring sinus/ear infections again last year. Since 3 more antibiotics in a row leading up to Christmas and then a weird migraine type thing have continued to feel bad. Balance has worsened, seeing flashing lights at times although vision is now improving again, weakness down one side, breathlessness, brain fog, stomach pain, the list could go on!
I am fuming that I've had to find these results via a printout, but not surprised! But on the other hand incredibly hopeful I may have discovered something that could finally help.
I'd really appreciate any of your thoughts and advice with this please...Jo
