My endocrinologist tested me for B12 deficiency. In the past, I’ve always been high because I would take supplements, and I guess they take forever to get out of your system. Anyway, I haven’t even taken a multivitamin in maybe half a year, and finally tested deficient. The doctor suggested injections and wants to test me for PA next visit, but that won’t be till June. I am going to see if my general practitioner can test me sooner, but don’t want to start supplementing again out of fear that my results will be high again, not low.
I have long suspected that I may have this issue for about a decade now, but it has always been ignored because of the supplement results, or symptoms from my pregnancy, or the final discovery of hypothyroidism caused by Hashimotos, (another disease that took forever to diagnose)
Any way, I want to start injections right away since sublingual has very little symptom reduction, and every time I had the opportunity to try injections I have missed out on them (different story). I don’t want to start them however if they could potentially tell the tester than I’m healthy when I know I’m not. What should I do?
