B 12 Anemia
Aug 26, 2007
I was recently diagnosted with B 12 anemia, my level had gotten down to 101 before it was discovered. I have taken shot and the sublingal B12 tablet. My Dr. siad he would retest for the B 12 levels 3 months after the shots to see if the tablets were maintaining and building my levels. I assume if they are not I'm in for another round of shots.

My question is how long does it take for the B 12 levels to go up? I'm still tired most of the time, but the weak, loss of appetite and some of the other symptoms have gone away so I feel like my level has gone up. But I'm just wondering how long before they will be even close to the what the Dr considers normal around 600?

I know that low B 12 involves the red blood cells and when I was sick last week the Dr checked my red blood cell count and it was 12.7 which the normal range in 13.0 so he was not concerned since he felt like the low B 12 would cause this but since the red blood cell count it almost normal would that indicate that my B 12 level is getting back to normal?

Also, during the whole process I lost 15 pounds, which was good for me then but at this point I just want to maintain my weight, however, my question since I lost the weight and my B 12 is low it seems my blood pressure had gone down, it was boarder line high before. Does low B12 help the blood pressure or could it be the weight loss that did that?

Any help is greatly appericated as I tired of feeling tired.
