LindaJoy Posted August 4, 2007 Report Share Posted August 4, 2007 Concerned about my B12. Since my neuropathy is getting worse, my new doc tested my B12 levels, along with some other stuff. My B12 is in the normal range, but just. It's 269 on a scale of 211-900. Back in November, it was over 500! I don't get it, as I eat one heck of a lot of meat (pork, which is supposed to be high in B12). I have had a lot of pancreatitis lately (just had an ERCP to fix the sphincter to try and relieve the pressure that was causing the pancreas attacks. I've read that pancreatitis can cause B12 problems. For all of you in the know, which most of you are, that's why I come to you with everything, , how low is considered deficient enough to start causing symptoms from B12 deficiency? I'm also going to ask for the methylmalonic acid test for accuracy, but in the meantime, all I have is the serum to go by.I'm concerned because I know my neuropathic symptoms are getting so much worse. I wonder if the low B12 could be causing some of this, and why did it sink so low, so fast?ANy suggestions greatly appreciated.Lindajoy Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
