: My husband was diagnosed with pernicious anemia about a year ago. His Doctor says there is no need to retest his B-12 levels since the shots he gets every 3 weeks ensure that his B12 level stays normal. Should he be checking more often? My husband says he can tell when he needs a shot, the Doctor disagrees. Anyone out there with a similar experience?
Get a second opinion from a doctor outside that medical group.
Of course he can tell by how he feels!
