Hi, 2 years ago my doc said my iron and b12 were low. My b12 was 140? I had a shot of b12 (which gave me acne-yuck) and thought no more about it. I have just had another blood test and my new doctor said I was low in b12 and need to take a supplement each day. I was just wondering about why I dont absorb it. I was reading up on it and see that a lack of intrinsic factor can cause it, but my doctor didnt mention this. If I had this problem would it take 2 years to use up the supply I had injected, maybe I just dont absorb it for other reasons? I am now on ppis which is a worry as they too stop absorbtion, I hope the supplements will work. Just wondering does b12 deficiency cause reflux, I see some people with this deficiency also have stomach troubles. Thanks.
