20 year old male from INDIA
8 months ago i was diagnosed with a b12 and D problem(very low levels)
Levels were VITAMIN D : 42.7 nmol/L (75-250 range)
VITAMIN B12: 119 pg/mL (211-911 range)
After getting 4 shots and supplementing(mbalmin 500mcg) for 8 months my B12 levels have risen to 272 pg/ml
i find this surprising as i eat a lot of MEAT and EGGS on a daily basis.I have the typical symptoms of b12 deficiency like Fatigue ,Tingling in hands etc
The problem is doctor told me that just because 272 is in the range,it is normal and i shouldnt worry.Reading up on b12 has made me realize that this is a true low level despite being in the range.
The doctor even told me that this level is common for people. What kind of doctor should i go to ?Who will take this problem seriously? Should i go to a blood disorder doctor? The general physician who originally diagnosed me didnt even wanted to get me on shots just supplements . WHAT SUGGESTIONS WOULD YOU GUYS GIVE,DOES IT SEEM LIKE A b12 problem or overthinking?
