bizarre bloodwork

I got some bloodwork im concerned about what it means. I'm a 22 year old female. Most concerning, my B12 levels were very high (1373 pmol/L) (I don't take supplements). My RBC and hematocrit were also high. Cholesterol was also high (very unusual, I'm almost nearly deficient and I eat healthy). Ferritin was a little low (not abnormal, but supplements recommended). There were leukocytes in my urine (2+? i don't know what that means).

I've been seeing doctors due to some Raynaud-like symptoms. I saw a hematologist but she thought I should see a rheumatologist. I do have von Willebrand's. my GP ordered this blood test.

Hello~I would definitely ask your GP about these results. The abnormally high levels of B12 could be due to some hidden issues with your liver or kidneys, or, it may mean nothing at all, that's why you need to discuss that result with your GP along with the other results.
