And the Doctor called me and said that I am still anemic. I have also been taking B-12 shots now for 4 months and can't really tell that it is helping me. Why wouldn't the B-12 shots be helping me by now? Would anyone know the answer to that.

Thanks,
Jan:)

First that is an important question to ask the doctor. Then after that, I can give some examples but this is not in anyway designed to take the place of your consultation with the doctor.
If folate is not given with the B-12, you may have a folate deficiency which is causing the anemia. If the anemia is being caused by loss of blood or iron for ANY reason, the B-12 shots will not prevent that. Third, if there is any chemical abuse going on, the chemical abuse will also interfere with the therapeutic benefits of B-12.
IamUnique,

I don't have a clue as to what all they check when they draw my blood. I do know they check my cholesterol because I have to teke medicne for that but the B-12 and being Anemic I'm not sure but I am gonna ask. I am tired of feeling bad all the time. I know everytime I go in to see my Doctor and they draw blood for the B-12 to be checked, they make me sign a paper for them. Have you ever had to sign a paper for them to check your blood or B-12 level? I was suppose to go to the Doctor yesterday but I cancelled my appointment because it was sleeting and snowing here and I didn't want to get out there in that weather like that. You never know about them other drivers coming up by you. Thats what bothers me!:D
