Confused on blood work results! The B12 levels are high,
according to the doctor due to oral supplements (listed
Iron Bind. Cap. (TIBC) 328 ug/dL 250-450
UIBC 275 ug/dL 150-375
Iron, Serum 53 ug/dL 35-155
Iron Saturation 16 % 15-55
Vitamin B12 1246 pg/mL 211-946
Folate (Folic Acid), serum >19.9 ng/mL >3.0
Prolactin 14 ng/dL 4.8-23.3
Also a history of a MCV of 80-83 with a bottom range of 86.
I have Hashimoto's and iron defiency anemia which I've been
taking medicine for for over a decade.
Medicine I was taking before blood work. The B12 dosage
is now down to 6mcg.
Levothyroxine – 75mcg
. Vitamin D- 2000 IU
My questions are ::
Can the B12 supplement cause the elevated B12?
Should I be worried that the Iron Saturation is only 16%, just barely within range?
