    Hi Jane, as they tested your TSH are you taking thyroid medication? It is thought you need a higher level of B12 to assist conversion of thyroid medication. Up to 1000 is thought to be optimal. Low B12 levels are common in those with thyroid problems. Will your GP consider giving you B12 injections? Marion

      Thanks for replying I have not yet seen the Gp I was given the results by the receptionist, but my tsh was borderline last time at o.39 so has now dropped to 0.22 and I was not sure if 327 is low for a B12 result I have had symptoms for many years but it is only now that the GP has decided to do something by the way I have a goitre but not that big apparently . I have an appt on Friday to discuss all the results of the blood test and result of the second thyroid scan.

    A B12 level of 327 isn't considered too low, but numbess in hands/feet along with any electricity/tingling sensations are considered to be neurological symptoms and means you probably should be getting the injections.
