After asking for my Vitamin D2 and D3 to be tested, the little line on the GP's screen said "see printed copy for result". He said "It's all normal", but when I asked him to look at the report, it indicated "may be inadequate", and I would never have known this without pressing him. Also, my B12 and folate are low in range, but no advice there, either, except "normal no action". I showed him the supplements I wished to take, and was literally met with a shrug of the shoulders, and "You can take them if you want". I asked if it was ok to take the B12 with a B-Complex to aid absorption (as I'm not sure if I've got that right). He said I shouldn't bother, and advised I use one bottle up and then start on the other.
I wonder how much it costs the NHS every year for all these expensive tests? :/
