Thumbs up Thank you for posting your story

I'm so glad your condition did not progress more before being caught by what is an exceptional physician. Yes, B12 serum (at the very least) should be routine, but it sure isn't even ordered by most...

There is no such thing as being too high in B12.

Have you had a ferritin test? Too much iron is dangerous, and often the other tests usually done to see what iron status is miss problems.

No guarantees, but those downperiods during the body's hard work to repair can be a lot longer than that.

Pernicious anemia is not the only reason for severe malabsorption of B12. Bypassing or removing the stomach also eliminates the availability of intrinsic factor (IF); or if a lot of the distal ileum...

Teddy,

I'm not surprised. B12 and folate work so closely together that one or the other may show a false result due to lack of sufficient quantity of the other. Because of the research and the...

Had you taken any B12 at all during that time? Even in a multivitamin?
