In October I was diagnosed with bowel cancer. I had a B-12 test on the 03/11/11 which measured my B-12 at 260 pmol/L. During that month I went raw vegan based heavily on vegetables and some fruit with vegetable juices.
At the end of the month on 25/11/11 my B-12 was up to 418 pmol/L.
This shows me that my body is very capable of B-12 manufacture and absorption. So much for meat! My diet was heavy in meat and eggs beforehand...
Very nice! Hope the bowel cancer goes away soon. Take care.
Carlos, it is marvelous to hear that you are doing better. So you did not start to include any supplements/pills/shots? You left out the animal products and suddenly your b12 started to rise?
I did not use any supplements during that time. However afterwards I did start B-12 shots so measurements now would be distorted. I figured I was better to be safe than sorry and my GP who administered the shots agreed.
YOU ROCK !
