So I recently got some blood work done. I received the following:
Complete blood count (CBC)
Got a call from the Doc last Friday saying I was extremely low in B12 (may be pernicious anemia). I have yet to get the full results myself, because he wanted me to come in and see him.
He knows I'm vegan, so I expect a lecture on how much "danger" (lol) I'm putting myself in by not eating dead animals. He literally said, I quote: "This could be all taken care of if you just ate a cheeseburger once a week."
Say it with me... wwwOooooooooooowww!
It concerns me how out of the loop most doctors are. I should soon be getting my copy of "Could it be B12?" on Harley's recommendation.
Believe it or not, it's actually a bit of a relief for me, because I've had symptoms of B12 deficiency since I was in Jr High School!! This very well could be a missing link to my health.
I just wrote this as encouragement for others who suffer from fatigue, anxieties, depression, brain fog more than they'd like on a fruit-based lifestyle to get your levels checked.
I'll be supplementing with a methycobalamin sublingual spray.
I may decide to post the blood results when I receive them. That's all for now, fruitcakes. ;-)
