fluctuating B12 levels but have pernicious anaemia

yvonneu profile image

I always thought that low B12 and PA were linked.

I have had low/borderline B12 readings previously but this last blood test indicated my level was normal yet I tested positive for pernicious anaemia.

Doctor did not seem unduly concerned.

anyone had similar experience ?

Thirty years ago, I know people who died from PA but we have come a long way since then.

Pernicious anaemia causes B12 deficiency which is why PA sufferers should have 2-3 monthly B12 injections. There is a forum on HU dedicated to PA and B12 deficiency healthunlocked.com/pasoc
