Ever feel like you have 'confused' written across your forehead some days??? I'm scheduled to go in Monday for my quarterly bloodwork/doc visit and get my numbers. This morning at 7:30 my doc calls me and said the bloodwork came in and there's a severe Vitamin B deficiency showing up. He began asking all sorts of diet related questions..what I'm eating/not eating. Potatoes of course is not on the list, but bananas, avocados, oats…etc are regular items that should be feeding the Vit. B area and they aren't. Well, I came home and of course started looking up all I could on the subject and found that most of the symptoms are similar to depression and he started treating me for that 4 months ago! Needless to say I now have anotherrrr prescription and he'll do bloodwork again in 2wks, if no improvement he'll start me on shots. Everything I've found says once you start the shots, you don't stop. Has anyone had to deal with this type of deficiency and have any suggestions how they handled it? I'm open to any advice!
Btw..had to ask what my A1C came back as…he said oh, it's great a 6.3! Considerable drop from a 10.2 in July…so maybe I'm doing some things right!!!!
