A couple of years ago my haemoglobin was down at 7 (normal 12-16 for women). I took iron tablets which took it to the normal level.

Last May I started getting the symptoms of anemia again, and got a blood test. My ferritin and haemoglobin were in the low normal range, but my B12 was only at 87 (I was told the normal is 200-1051). The doctor didn't seem to think there was a problem, but I went to the pharmacy and bought B12 tablets anyway.

I then got another blood test around September last year and all of those vitamins were fine but still at low normal range, and B12 was up to 382 which was better.

I had a blood test earlier this week and just got the results. It has been around 5 or 6 months since the blood test before this one. Here are my results:

Haemoglobin - 13.5 (normal 12-16)

Ferritin - 21 (normal 15-300)

B12 - 231 (normal 200-1051)

Haemoglobin is fine, ferritin is low, and my b12 had dropped again. B12 has dropped from 382 to 231 in the space of 5 or 6 months. Does this mean anything? I eat healthy, and have plenty fruit and veg. Does anyone have advice on why my B12 may be dropping?
