[QUOTE=zoes life;2607180]A B12 test will say "B12." Your doctor may be referring to MCV which is routinely done with a CBC. This tests measures the size of your red blood cells, and is often elevated in the presence of B12 and folic acid deficiencies. If you have a mixed deficiency anemia (such as iron and B12) the MCV may be normal (iron deficiency tends to make RBC's smaller). If I were you, I would insist on a B12 test and not accept the use of MCV only. Both B12 and iron deficiencies can often be caused by h. pylori. Good luck with finding out what is going on.

I have a question for you on h.pylori.
About three months ago I started eating Dannons yogurt. The one with the "Bifidus Regularis" in it. Dannon claims that in two weeks you'll be regular if you eat this yogurt.

About 1 month ago, I started having full fledge panic attacks. I went to the ER thinking it was a heart attack. Everything came out fine, except my iron levels.

I've been anemic for years, but it's never caused me any problems until now...Other than fatigue.

Do you think that the Bifidus Regularis bacteria could have triggered the h.pylori bacteria? Along with the anemia, indigestion and bacteria could this have triggered the panic attacks?
