Hi all, so after patiently waiting for the 9 week mark to get my bloodwork done, in the hopes of an increase (25mcg to 50mcg) my test results came back.
TSH is down to 3.640 from 7.690. I'm feeling better as I increased my dosage and method of B12, but i am still frustrated about not loosing weight. The increase in B12 has picked my energy up and taken away brain fog.
I have an appointment to see my Dr, next Friday, I was told that they will not be increasing my dosage. Since I'm feeling better should i ask for an increase? I am frustrated because of the weight, i walk, exercise and eat right. My blood sugar seems to be on the rise due to the increase in belly fat.
I just don't know what to do, I'm also wondering if I didn't bring this on myself. I follow a fairly strict plant-based diet and cause they were "on-sale" got 500mcg B12 oral tablets. The lady that did my bloodwork yesterday said that only approx. 10% of b12 is absorbed and it's a water soluble vitamin. I'm thinking that cause i was on such a low dose and that i exercise and sweat regularly that i have somehow become b12 deficient. So I'm also curious, if i fix this by taking 5000mcg of the dropper style b12, if my thyroid #'s will come down on their own. Any thoughts, and what kind of test should I have my Dr. run if my only remaining symptom is weight loss?
