Hope someone can help with my query !
I've been taking B12 supplements (sublingual, Methylcobalamin version) since November as my level was 282 and I was experiencing loads of symptoms!
I've taken around 2mg per day and now my level is up to 902! I presume I don't have an absorbtion problem otherwise I assume it would have taken longer to get this figure up. My doctor would never test me for this anyway as she felt I was not low enough to have a problem.
I have now been told to stop the supplements due to the level being too high and my Red cell folate is now 731 which is apparently way too much.
Does anyone know if there is a connection between B12 & Folate (folic acid?) I don't know the implications of either of these being too high. I have only taken folic acid in my usual multivitamin so I don't know what has caused this.
I do still have symptoms but not as severe, My Ferritin has gone up from 12-59 but it has taken over 6 months for this increase. I presumed if my B12 & Ferritin was now a good level I should be okay!
