I found out about my deficiency from regular checkup, it was 182. (which doesn't sound that low). I had to do injections everyday for a week, and now once a week for 4 weeks, then 1x monthly for life.
He did a lot of blood tests, and ruled out autoimmune diseases. I get enough b12 in my diet so it's not that, which means My stomach is not making IF so I can't absorb it. Isn't that the definition of P-anemia?!
He thinks it's due to my alcohol consumption (2-3 glasses of wine a Nite).
I know alcoholics have B12 issues, but that's not my case.
My question is, if i don't make IF, then doesn't that mean by default that I have P-anaemia? What blood tests should I have to confirm my hunch?
Thanks so much!!
