My primary care doctor called me today to go over my lab results from a couple of weeks ago. She's thrilled with most everything (cholesterol, glucose, the improvement in my vitamin D) but the only thing that she was a little concerned with was my vitamin B12 levels. Even though I'm within normal ranges, it's on the very low side of normal (levels should be from 200 to 1100, and mine are about 220) even though I am very good about taking my vitamins.
She prescribed vitamin B12 injections to be given at home. My husband said he will do the injecting since I am a little heebidy-jeebidy about poking myself with a needle. I need to do the injections once every 2 weeks for 2 months and then we'll recheck my levels.
I'll let you know how it goes.
