Hi cutejenny77
How are you today.......

High folate levels can indicate a B12 deficiency as folate needs B12......It could also mean you have been supplementing but you dont mention this or you just have a diet with good amounts of folate.....

Do you take any form of vitamin supplement ?

My therapy is this 10,000mcg via injection 3 times a week until symptoms are better..then we will do 2 times a week to 1 and 5000mcg and use subs as well
I also take doses of folate with my injections to help the uptake.....I am also vitD deficient...
This has helped hugely I now have no tingling and numbness and my head oh my head is back to normal at last.....
I was orginally on Hydroxo 1 per week did nothing my new doctor likes to keep the body flooded with the B12 and the methyl type as it is the best for neuro damage.....He says the levels should be maintained at 1500-2000.....

We dont know for sure what has caused my deficiency but we know it is real doc suspects gluten but is nonconclusive as the bloods didnt show it had endoscopy but I was all ready on the gluten free diet so it would have skewed tests anyway doc says if you feel better of it dont eat it and I do feel better however I do slip often.........I do get all the symptoms when I eat gluten and have those deficiencies like folate b12 vitD my ferritin was low but normal...Will be having rechecks this week.......

Sorry I have rambled on a bit hope it is helpful anyway

Keep us posted

Goodluck
