Re: B12 deficient
Nov 28, 2003

Funny - I had mine checked last month and it was at 74 - my doctor freaked out - its the lowest mine has ever been, and I have had low b12 for years now. 74 is extremely low from what the doctors tell me. Have you recently changed your diet or anything? Your doctor should send you for a Schillings Test to see if you lack the Intrinsic Factor... If you are missing it, you will probably have to continue with shots... I personally am not missing the Intrinsic Factor, so we are going on three years now of trying to figure out why my b12 is so low... I'm not sure about the Iodine or anything - never heard of that before. Has your B12 been tested in the past? (ie what is your level usually?) Are you a vegetarian?

I am getting mine tested again on Thursday - here's hoping its not 74 still! I have been taking sublingual B12 - 1000 mcg a day... you could try taking those (not necessarily that high a dose).

Good luck! Sorry i wasn't much help.
