I suffer from memory loss and lack of concenteration. I also have numbness of mind. I cannot think, recall and memorize. I feel sleepy even after having sleep for 10-11 hours. I always feel tired. I am taking Methycobal tablets for the last two days with one tablet per day.
This is my report of Vitamin B12: Range Mentioned: pg/mL Normal: 187 - 883 Intermediate: 150 - 187 Deficient: < 150 My Result: Vitamin B12= 116
I have a few questions regarding my report :
1. Are my levels are alarmingly low or just common no big issue.
2.What is the possible reason.
3.What is the best and quickest way to get back to normal levels and how long it does take.
4.What Harmful effect does this deficiency leads to and its linkage with other possible issues.
Any further info you would like to add. Thanks
Welcome to icliniq
Thank you for writing and I understand your concern.
1) your levels are just low and can be increased easily with medicine and diet.
2) possible reasons can be due to deficiencies on b12 in diet itself and anemia . It’s a condition where blood levels go down. So did you blood test along with vitamin b12 ?
3) best way to increase your vitamin level is eat red meat and healthy diet such as pomegranate and papaya ,apple and medicine:- syrup Dexorange 200ml so take 5 ml once a day for month.
4 ) this deficiency can lead to anemia and pale skin if not treated then weakness . What symptoms do you have currently?
Please do blood cbc test to rule out anemia. Thank you
