My B12 serum levels are high, yet my cobalt levels (in hair) are low. What does this mean?

Posted , 2 users are following.

I got my hair mineral analysis test and my cobalt levels were lower than the normal range. However, when I tested my B12 levels, they were above normal (most likely a result of me supplementing B12). Any explanation for this, considering cobalt is a component of B12 and low cobalt levels could possibly lead to anemia?
