Deficient Iron and B12

I've just got my lab results back and I think my B12 and Iron are extremely deficient. I know that as I'm not actually 'under' the range the Dr will not prescribe any meds for it. Been there, done that before...

My questions are

1) Do you think these are low?

2) Can you recommend supplements that are actually worth it, i.e get absorbed into the system

Results: ( I didn't take any meds 24 hours before the blood test)

Serum Iron Level 9 umo1/L (7 -32)

Serum Vitamin B12 336 ng/L (211 -911)

Thank you all so much, I always appreciate your replies.

  • Sarah I'm not as knowledgeable as others on here but your B12 looks on the low side I have a family history of PA mines at 530 I use B13 patches and was advised on here to start taking multi B vits my Dr has reluctantly just done folate etc and B12 it will be interesting to get the results. My B12 has stayed at 530 for the last 2 years with the patches. All the best x

  • Thank you x
