Review: 'Through the Shadowlands’ describes Julie Rehmeyer's ME/CFS Odyssey
I should note at the outset that this review is based on an audio version of the galleys and the epilogue from the finished work. Julie Rehmeyer sent me the final version as a PDF, but for some reason my text to voice software (Kurzweil) had issues with it. I understand that it is...

    Your B12 should be over 500 pg/mL; you don't need injections, since sublingual B12 (methylcobalamin or Source Naturals dibencozide) will raise it quickly. I use this one: https://www.amazon.com/Source-Naturals-Dibencozide-Sublingual-Coenzyme/dp/B000GFPDB0 How is your homocysteine?

    Might look into fasting to reduce your non-alcoholic fatty liver. Anecdotally, fasting for NAFLD has had great success, and also there's this: https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2016/05/160509085347.htm

    You’ll have to educate me on what homocysteine is I’m afraid I’ve no idea what that is.
    I’m already making changes to my diet, not that it was anything too bad but every little positive change is a step in the right direction.

    Homocysteine is an amino acid that can accumulate in people with methylation problems. Since you have a lowish B12 level, it's possible that you also have an underperforming methylation cycle, and a homocysteine test would tell us that. There have been reams written on methylation; just google, or search these forums.

    In any case, sublingual B12 should raise your B12 level. After you reach the 500-1000 pg/mL range, you could have a homocysteine test to see how your methylation is going.

    Update: turns out I don't have non-alcoholic fatty liver disease !?!! Apparently the scan only showed some fatty deposits which have since reduced in size since the first scan 3 years ago, and there are no indicators towards scar tissue. I should never have been told I had NAFLD in the first place according to my GP, who was very apologetic. My jaundiced eyes must be down to Gilbert's Syndrome?
