I've taken an active B12 test

    Hi,

    I have found taken B12 to be of benefit to me. My father had anaemia in his late years and his brother died of it when he was a baby (around 1920).

    Since there seems to be some history I took a test in London for anaemia. It was arrange from here: http://www.purehealthshop.co.uk/shop/article_32/Anaemia-Profile-(Blood).html?sessid=Ndi5xqc6pYvEtGqmK4lkUbxKhC2WCCDl1H4L78jFoILmSRlLtaGbgoJ73PWUVV0t&shop_param=cid=2&aid=32&

    Hopefully I will get some results to see if my B12, folate or iron is low.

    Has anyone had an active B12 test? what are you thoughts on it. I've been reading the book "could it be B12" and it seems that a lot of people could be deficient in B12.

    I am taking methylcobalamin at 5 to 7 Mg and dibecoplex at 10MG and it has helped with energy and mood and focus. Sometime a feel a little bit detached, but usually energised. Before I did feel low and sometimes depressed or negative thinking. This seems to have improved for me after taking the B12 and the other supplements that are below.

    I'm also taking liquid carnitine at 10Mg and metafolin at 800Mcg. basically the basic methylation protocol. I did this partly to see how it would work since I'm advising a friend with ME.

    Thinks

    I had a serum B12 test done and it was normal. Apparently they aren't reliable unless B12 is high in the serum test because that means it's not being used by your methylation cycle. I'm not sure you can test methylcobalmin.

    5-7 MG is very high, I think. I wasn't able to get past 500 MCG without feeling out of body and weird.

    How long have you been taking all that? I think it can take months to see methyl traps.

    Hi,

    Been taking it since about February of this year. I started at 1mg of methylcobalmin only. I think I will dial it down since the last dose made me spaced out.

    I got the results today and the clinic said:
    It seems I have high folate and B12. I did top taking all supplements 6 days before the test, but it seems the levels I've been taking have kept them in the blood for while and has elevated my results. some of my results are:

    Active B12

    * 230

    pmol/L

    25.1 - 165.0

    Red cell folate

    * 1795

    nmol/L

    158 - 1099

    MCHC

    * 35.6

    g/dL

    30 - 35

    Lymphocytes

    * 43.2% 3.66

    x10^9/L

    1.2 - 3.65

    TRANSFERRIN SATURATION

    26

    %

    20 - 55



    FERRITIN

    67

    ug/L

    30 - 400


    I've attached the full result as a PDF.

    I'm not quite sure how to interpret the results, if I should now stop the B12 or consider it ok to have a high level or it is a sign of it not being absorbed. However I do feel a positive change from taking the b12.

    I was going to dial down the dose anyway since I spaced myself out with the last dose yesterday at 7mg methylcobalamin and 10mg dibencoplex.
