B12 low body temperature connection

Discussion in 'Detox: Methylation; B12; Glutathione; Chelation' started by Lucas, Jul 11, 2016.

    I had a blood test done and get this results:

    Methyl Malonic Acid: 0,62 umol/L Ref: 0,08 – 0,56 umol/L

    B12: 997 pg/ml Ref: 211 – 911 pg/ml

    This results I get without supplementing b12. So I have High b12 and high MMA.

    My symptoms are fatigue, low body temperature and pain on legs.

    Since I had low body temperature, I starting taking thyroid hormone, but this don’t worked, my temperature don’t increased and I get hyperthyroid symptoms (weight loss, anxiety, etc).

    Starting taking methylb12, 5.000 mcg, but I feel worse whit it, fell sleepy and fatigued.

    So I switched to hydroxyb12, 1.000 mcg, don’t feel worse, but don’t feel better either.

    What can I do?

    My real doubt is if b12 deficiency can lower your body temperature? Since I don’t respond to thyroid therapy, maybe the cause of my cold body is the b12.

    If methyl gives me sleepy, should I take it at night?

    Has someone here increased his body temperature whit b12?

    Thank you very much.

    The symptoms you describe are a subset of my own, I have not found anything that works.
    I have been taking vitamin supplements for years but my body temp has remained lower since the onset of my illness. I too want to know what can be done, since my doctor has said not to worry about it.

    I have started on CoQ10, this gives me a burst of energy, but then I crash real hard afterwards.
