Vitamin B12

Hello.  I have low thyroid, vitamin d deficiency and low vitamin b12.  I was wondering if you think that Vitamin B12 is needed and what kind and what dose would you recommend.   I am having symptoms of memory loss, tingling fingers, etc.

Vitamin D  25.8 (32 -100)
Vitamin B12    270 (211-911)

I am currently on Synthroid, and 4000 iu of Vitamin D3

The range of normal B12 is from160-950pg/ml. Reason for such wide range is due to vitamin B12 are in our tissues plus in the blood so it is difficult to have a true reading. Some people have low vitamin B12 levels due to folate deficiency. I suggest you get a complete Iron profile blood work, which includes MCV, Serum B12, MMA, serum folate, and RBC folate so you can see if you are really deficient in any vitamin Bs or not. If the tests show you are deficient in vitamin B12 injections work the best. Best of luck.
