If you are checking B12 which is my area I dont knwo much about magnesium sorry
Ask for the following
Active B12 holotranscobalomin
Red Cell Folate
FUll Blood Count
Thyriod T3 & T4 and thyriod antibodies
Checkout the symptoms for B12 there is hundreds because it affects all systems of the body..........
As far as having pale eyelids ect (sorry polkadot dont want to offend) they would only be that way if you are B12 deficienct anemia like PA you do not have to be anemic to have B12 deficiency.........I was extremely deficient and never had this problem as I was not anemic although I was low in iron common with B12 def....
There is something interesting and I would use this a diagnostic test by any means......I remember reading an article about fingernials and B12 deficiency stating that if you have no moons on your fingernails then you are well I lokked at my nails and I only had them on my thumbs low and behold after 6 months of intensive treatment they are starting to reappear on my other nails
Just a little bit of trivia but dont diagnose by this....
Hope this helps
