I've been put on B12 injections after my B12 levels were 66. While having an injection I asked the nurse why my levels were so long. She looked at my blood test results on her computer and told me my body was lacking intrinsic factor. She told me I therefore had pernicious anaemia. When I asked further questions about this condition she was very nice and as helpful as she could be but said "I'm just a nurse, you'll need to speak with a doctor."
I therefore made an appointment with the doctor. The doctor told me my haemaglobin level is 16 so therefore, she said, I "do not have pernicious anaemia". She told me I would be anaemic if my haemaglobin level was below 13.5. She said 16 is good for my age - I'm 35 years old and male.
I asked then what was causing my B12 to be so low and she shrugged and said "life".
Can anyone tell me what they hell is going on, please?
