Elevated Vitamin B12 and Ferritin: Any pointers?
I'm curious if anyone might have some pointers for me.
I received my ferritin results 10 weeks ago – the result was 23. My B12 at that time was around 700 (I was supplementing B12 for a time before that but not a high dose and not consistently).
My doctor suggested 150 mg of elemental iron once a day which I have been taking since.
9 weeks later I had another blood test. This time my ferritin is reported as 138. My Vitamin B12 is now at 1400. (I had stopped individual B12 supplementation after discovering it was at 700, but there is a small dose included in my 150 mg iron pill).
I don't have obesity, thryoid issues, diabetes or fatty liver.
I'm not sure what to make of this as I assume my readings are way too elevated. I must have an underlying condition? Any pointers about what to explore next?
Thanks so much.
