    Anemic and high B-12?

    My doctor says I am anemic but my B-12 is 1500 and all test are normal....any idea what is going on? Should I be worried?

    Looks like you're in the same boat as me! They tested my B-12 before iron, expecting it to be low but it came in at 1304. Also my calcium is high and none of my docs seem to be able to provide an explanation other than you're supposed to urinate excess B-12 and it shouldn't be high. Did you get any answers yet? Ive got none after a bunch of tests.

    Do you guys drink a lot of milk? Milk is rich in B12 and that would explain the high B12 for both of you and the high calcium for Vicks. Also, calcium inhibits absorption of iron so you never want to eat calcium with iron rich meals. That could explain the low iron.
