Stopping of B12

Posted , 3 users are following.

hello

my mum has had pernicious anemia for approximatley 50 years and has been on B12 for most of this. Her gp has now told her that her B12 is normal and they are now stopping her injections after all this time though she has lots of medical problems. has anybody come across this before and is this normal for a gp to do? My mum is still very tired and fatigued. thank you

    YES , some doctors believe you will stay at the normal number after you have reached it. But soon your mum's numbers will start to fall. I have had PA for 30 years, I give myself an injection every 10 days. I hope you can convince your GP that could be a mistake , Good luck and GOD bless.

      Hi,

      Please check blood:

      cheaper version:

      CBC

      Vitamin B12

      Homocysteine (for controlling B12 functions)

      Potassium

      Iron

      liver tests (enzymes+bilirubin)

      expensive (for controlling B12 functions):

      • methylomalonic acid
      • holoTranscobalamin

      Then try a combination of hydroxy- methylo- adeno- -cobalamins

      At the same time try diet enriched in potassium and iron as well as some amount of supplements: potassium cirtate or gluconate , iron (don't know what kind - all of them can be hard for digestive), zinc

      Which one of B12 is in your shots?

      Repeat "cheaper version" after 1-2 month of treatment.

      be careful with iron supplement.

      Pozdrawiam,

      Przemek
