Hi , earlier I told everyone about my vitamin B12 being low, well I have an update about that. My doctor sent off my bloodwork, part of it any way, the results came back yesterday. I just got back from her office. My vitamin B 12 was lower then we thought, I am now taking 1.000mcg a day, this could be caused from the Metformin that I am taking. So if you are taking that make sure your doctor checks this out from time to time. Ok now on to the Vitamin D, the test showed that I have virtually none of this in my system, so I am taking 50,000iu once a week for the next 12 weeks, which then it will be checked again. She didn't know why I have this problem, I have tried to check online to find something, and the only thing that I could find said it could be from lack of poor blood sugar control. My doctor or I either one thinks that is the cause, since my A1C level is 5.3 and the highest bs level I had in the past year was 135. Does anyone know anything about this? Can you tell me where I should look for info on this? I am worried about this big time. Thanks for listening to me.
