    Epstein Barr virus causes megaloblastic anemia (methylation related)

    I was troublesheeting a high MCV on CBC labs and learned that Epstein Barr virus causes it (megaloblastic anemia). It is a deficiency of activated folic acid and activated B12. I am heterozygous for MTHFR deficiency but never had a problem with it before EBV infection in 2008. Post infection...

    Hydroxocoblamin not converting to Adensoylcoblamin

    Hello all, I am taking a hydroxy b12 and Folinic acid lozenge along with plenty of riboflavin in the AM as I am MTHFR c677t double, but my MMA does not lower. I am also Comt ++ so methyl does not work for me/causes neurotransmitter issues. If I take an Adensoylcobalmin b12 lozenge in the PM...

    Dysautonomia worse treating B12

    Hello all, It appears we finally have the right approach and my MMA levels are coming down. I have already upped my potassium. My dysautonomia seems to be getting worse.

    Two Forms of B12 at Once = No Absorption?

    Hello all, After identifying my B12 deficiency via an MMA test (623) we tried methyl shots with methylfolate but found I was having neuropathy. Stopping both methyls cleared up the neuropathy and using an hydroxy b12 1000mcg/Folinic acid lozenge in the AM along with an Adensoyl b12 1000mcg...

    Telemedicin Docs that will prescribe B12

    I was actually brought here by the "Where Can I get Hydroxocobalamin without a prescription?" thread. I've been reading Martin Pall's stuff and want to try some of his suggestions. Injecting B12 in the form of hydroxocobalamin seems like the most potent strategy of his. Looking at that thread...

    Methyl Cobalamin Crash?

    I started taking 1mg of methyl cobalamin recently. It really helps me with energy throughout the day but I always seem to have an extreme somewhere between 5-7pm. Is it safe for me to take a second 1mg methyl cobalamin around 5pm to potentially prevent the crash? Is this common? I'm sensitive to...

    Burning GI, Rapid Weight Loss, Usually After B12 Supplementation

    I've got several health issues, but one of the most debilitating is states during which I experience 5/10 GI burning, burning throughout arms, hands, face, etc. and rapidly lose weight. These episodes seem to come up naturally, often after periods of stress or little sleep but are guaranteed...

    My B12 is dropping very fast, what could be the cause?

    Hi all, My B12 is dropping very fast and I start with injections or the Greg's B12 transdermal oils soon. But I wonder if someone have an idea why B12 could drop so fast? 2015 June: MMA: 0,09 B12: 467 Active B12: Not measured 2018 April: MMA: 0,23 B12: 351 pmol/l Active B12: Not measured...

    Alternative ways to get extra potassium?

    I've finally got my methlyation up enough that my need for potassium has increased. However, I'm having a problem getting potassium into my body. My digestive system will not absorb more than 50 mg/day if that when I take supplements and that's spread out. I think this is partially due to being...

    Very noticeable improvements in brain fog using Dr Greg Russell-Jones's transdermal B12 oils (which provide a similar dose to B12 injections)

    For the last few months I have been using the methylcobalamin + adenosylcobalamin vitamin B12 transdermal oil developed by Dr Greg Russell-Jones in Australia, which he recommends for ME/CFS. This transdermal B12 oil has made very noticeable improvements in my brain fog and cognitive clarity...
