Hi Genie,

I, too, am not producing intrinsic factor it seems, according to the Schillings results. Sublingual B-12 is held under your tongue and absorbed through the mucous membranes under your tongue. I take one 1,000 mcg every morning. This is in addition to being on the injections. They won't test my blood again until December so I won't know what my levels are right now. I don't know if the sublingual is enough, so please make sure to research or ask. Letting the B-12 drop is dangerous and can cause permanent nuerological damage.
What kinds of problems are you having getting the injections? I get mine at my internist's office. Right in the arm - doesn't hurt at all. Have you asked your doctor or who tested your B-12? This should be covered under your insurance. I have heard of people giving themselves injections but don't have any more info on that. That might be a good subject header for this board. Let me know if I can be of any more help. I'm just trying to figure this out, just like you. :-)

Take good care!
Lisa
