Re: Help with blood work results
From what I understand about the topic, if your mom's level of methylmalanoic acid was elevated it would be an indication of a B12 deficiency. Among the symptoms of a B12 deficiency, particularly in older patients, are peripheral neuropathy, ataxia, loss of position and vibration senses,(balance, among other issues), memory impairment, depression, and dementia in the absence of anemia.
The only thing I can find for a deficiency is an indication of possible renal disorders.
When do you see the doctor who ordered the tests?
