Hi, I think maybe you're looking at this backwards.

It's "hidden" when your blood shows [U]normal[/U] levels, but you have symptoms. So it's not hidden at all to you, but a doctor may tell you there's nothing wrong with you because the blood test shows normal levels of B12.

I forget exactly how this happens, but I think if your folate is off it can make your B12 levels appear normal even though they are low.
