30 Bananas a Day!

I got my b-12 levels tested yesterday and they came up as 849! (I forget the units) but apparently normal range is between like 136 and 914.  I laughed out loud I was so relieved.  Should I still take the injections I bought just for s's and g's?

how have you been keeping your levels high?? :)

I have no idea.  I actually bought injections cuz I thought they were low, but then I got em tested today.  I have no clue why they are as good as they are. 

How long have you been a vegan?  Have you taken oral supplements at any point?

yea I take a multi

I do not recommend the injections.  Give it about half year to a year and get tested again. 

People with a healthy gut may still make some of their own B-12, so it is not necessary for everyone, just because they are vegan, to take the injections and supplements.

Congratulations and thanks for testifying!

Peace, PK

You're just gonna loss them down the toilet as your body has enough. Why waste them? Do what PK suggested...wait and test again. I was vegan for over 12 years and had three pregnancies before my b12 levels got low enough to want/need to supplement.
