Re: B12 deficiency
Jan 25, 2008
Hi Deb,
I can related to the doctor taking it lightly. I am in the same situation with my GP, she is not taking my low B12 seriously at all. Actually, she never once since 2002 tested me for B12 deficiency..yes, its true. The only test she would do is a CBC blood count and check my ferritin. The call me say I am anemia take some iron pills and that was it. Last week I found out my B12 is at 189 reference range is 150-860 as being normal. When I questioned about the B12 injections she said its nothing to worry about and she was not concerned. So I asked for a copy of the blood work and came right her. I started to take a sublingual B12 pill and will see if it works. One of the ladies on this forum suggested the liquid B12 but I couldnt find it at the time. I am going to look into to seeing a specialist and see what happens from there.Good luck and I hope you can find another doctor who will listen to your concerns. Good doctors are so hard to come by these days.
