Re: B12 Questions
Jan 31, 2008

I feel like a scientific experiment sometimes – but at least it makes this journey a bit more interesting.

I have been self injecting B12 every two weeks for a year and a half now. My lowest B12 number reached the higher 200 range. Seven months ago I tested at 777 and was finally able to exercise – by the time my 6 month checkup came around I was having increased symptoms – my lab work showed that because if my exercising I dropped down into the 600 range. Since then I have stopped the exercising for a 3 month period – this way I can gain back the level I lost. Next month I will start back with the exercise program but cut it back a bit in attempts to keep my numbers at a more level rate.

It seemed to me like I really started feeling the best when I was in the upper 700 range. My goal for the future is to get closer to 1,000 before I start back to my full range of physical activity prior to this illness. It’s a long journey but I have learned a lot from it so far. And I know that is will have to balance my life around my B12 shots and levels stored in my liver – but it is a lot better than the alternative.

Ask any odd question you may have – I will answer as honestly as I can from my own experience and hopefully you will find some information useful.
