I haven’t had a blood test for at least 5 years or more and haven’t been feeling as good as I did for the first 2.5 years on this diet, so thought I’d get a test to see if there are any problems. One thing I was expecting to be low but hoping a long water fast I did a year ago had fixed were my B12 levels. I’ve been vegan for the majority of the last 14 years and always had to supplement as an initial test way back in the first few years came back with a level of 90. 180 is considered to be the minimum here in Australia but I hear it’s as high as 550 in other parts of the world.
So here’s my new level;
Vitamin B12 86 (> 180) pmo1/L
I’m officially on shots as of now which I had hoped to avoid.
As for the rest of the test I’m just listing the levels that were flagged as being “abnormal” on the results.
Urea 1.1 (2.5 – 8.0) mmo1/L
T.Protein 58 (60 – 82) g/L
Albumin 32 (35 – 50) g/L
ALP 131 (30 – 120) U/L
Under these results was the following text;
Low urea may be due to reduced protein intake, malabsorption or liver disease.
Mild elevation of ALP may occur in response to a wide variety of medications, infectious and inflammatory conditions and early bone disease.”
So if any of you raw blood experts out there have any insights to what these results indicate please let me know!
Yeah I have since the evening of the first shot but not sure if it is a placebo effect or not. Mental clarity has returned and my mood has lifted. Been feeling very positive and happy again!
That's awesome!! I'm dying to try them. I've felt so tired lately but it's probably detox.
From what Ive seen, people get more benefits from doing a course of b12 shots than a long water fast.
Thats just been my personal experience witnessing others.
Most people report dramatic loss of excess fat and fluid retention after doing a course of b12 shots.
Harley, where do you purchase your b12? online?
I order my shots from Trimnutrition in Florida:
Use promo code 'oathten' for 10% off.
It's the best stuff, fresh B12 grown on corn, methyl, no preservatives!
Olivia has an e copy of 'could it be b12?'
Yeah she was reading it while I was there but unfortunately it's a locked file so will only work on her kindle.
