Very high B12 +folate levels while vegetarian not taking supplements
I have not been eating well for ages, a dietician told me I really needed to eat more proteins (among other things).
An internist years ago discovered i had low B12 levels and I had shots. But this is a long time ago.
A few years ago a GP ran tests > very high B12 levels. No need for shots.
And last week the new GP did the bloodwork: VERY high B12 levels and high folate levels.
I have been told that high B12 in the blood does in no way indicate that I don't have B12 deficiency. Instead it could be high but not be absorbed properly.
I don't eat meat.
I ate fish once this year and occasionally eat an egg say, once every two weeks.
I hardly drink dairy.
I don't take any supplements at all.
The GP asked which supplements I take. I don't take any supplements at all. He is stumped.
Does anyone recognise this? What could it be?
I too am so stumped.
