Pages: 1 2 3 4 Showing 1 - 20 of 75 for b12 values. (0.002 seconds)

... Yes, I've been supplementing with B12 and folate for over a year, which would explain the high blood levels of them. ... (4 replies)
... What that means is that B12 deficiency symptoms dont occur within this range in the vast majority of people. ... (5 replies)
... Can a low B12 deficiency cause fatigue even if you don't have any anaemia? ... (40 replies)

... With a level of 91, it will take awhile for you to feel better. As your body gets the B12 it needs, it uses up iron and potassium and folic acid, so if you suddenly feel worse, you may need to look into those values as well. ... (40 replies)
... wise. Sure, I got tired, but nothing like before. I was feeling so much more normal! I was glad they had detected the B12 deficiency and that there was an actual treatment. ... (3 replies)
... I was unsure of the actual values as they just told me to take iron tablets so i went to the GP and asked for a print out of the blood test results, i found this helpful. ... (14 replies)
... I was diagnosed with hemochromatosis 3 years ago in 2006, and I only have one hemochromatosis gene -- H63D. Most doctors believe that people who only have one hemochromatosis gene are not at risk for developing hemochromatosis or iron overload. Because of that misconception, none of the doctors I saw over a period of 13 years were concerned that my blood tests and a liver... (21 replies)
... Yes, I think this is so very true. It is easy to become myopic and overlook the big picture when we have something concrete, like numbers/labs, to focus on...sometimes when looking at details, we can't see what's staring us right in the face! The numbers mean little if you don't know the answer to the "WHY". Your post was much appreciated, cgranulomatis. Thank you. (24 replies)
... Iam sorry but this is incorrect information here you state that B12 deficiency is clearly not her problem......Incorrect there is no B12 or HCY or UMMA results so I dont know how you can say that...... ... (24 replies)
... even if they are right about something! I'm not totally siding with your doctor, but if you look at the values you gave for your bloodwork, and you have some medical training, it's easy to see that vitamin B12 deficiency is not your problem. ... (24 replies)
B12 Question
Nov 23, 2008
... if your values are low or if you are at risk. You do need to know your value, sometimes they say it is "within range," but it's really too low and you may need to supplement. ... (2 replies)
Low B12?
Sep 16, 2008
... B-12 will indeed cause Neuro symptoms. I have never heard anyone say that you have to be anemic to have symptoms, maybe it is true though. It sounds like you may be having more than a B-12 deficiency going on at the same time. According to your test results you do. I think that there is a form of arthritis that doesn't show on blood labs. Your right, I have never seen... (8 replies)
B12 range
Feb 7, 2008
... I had my hema appt. today, but saw my nurse practioner instead of my hema. I asked her about the updated B12 accepted values, and she said she didn't know, but that she would find out. ... (3 replies)
... Hi! Fancy meeting you here! :) I'm glad you posted your test results. Gives a better idea of what's going on. Ok, first, your B12. While its not bad, it could be higher. Optimal levels are close to 1000, in spite of what the range says. Don't worry about supplementing. Your body will just "wash out" whatever it doesn't need. I see what you mean about your iron. ... (1 replies)
... The other values are very similar to the more recent test. ... (1 replies)
... Hi there. Just read your post today from March when you first started your B12 injections. Are you feeling alot better now? ... (12 replies)
... Some questions come to mind. You say your ferritin is 11 and you had an infusion on April 9. Were you diagnosed with anemia at that time or just deficiency? I wondered if the dr has determined the cause of your anemia? He should tell you.... Ok. Now I see your latest CBC had a hemoglobin of 11.6. Anything below 12 is definately anemia. I don't know how your drs can... (12 replies)
... Ooops forgot to answer you thyroid optimum question. I have learned that good clinicians aim for a TSH around 1. It all depends, however, on the free t4 and t3 levels if they are in the just a bit above mid normal range. Of course, all that is really important is how you feel, even if the labs differ.... Right now, I have a TSH of .48 (.27-4.2) ... (12 replies)
... PS You included your b12 level, but not your ferritin. I was unsure whether you were just low iron, iron deficient, or anemic. ... (12 replies)
... s on and off with the hypothyroid. I read on the thyroid board that the TSH should be 1.0. Mine rose to 11.8 recently, which may be why I'm feeling so bad. My B12 is normal at 512, I guess. But I'm still trying to deal with the iron as well, and get a ferritin level so I can work with that. ... (12 replies)
