Re: folic acid deficiency and my b12 is 172

My husband was 300 and the norm was between 200 and 900. His hemotologist told him to take the B12 shots or the B12 that disolves under the tongue. She said even though it was the norm it was low, He had dizziness and forgetfulness. No mouth sores though
