30 Bananas a Day!

Hello,

 

I have been a vegetarian for 6.5 years, a vegan for 5 years, raw for 2.5 years and 80-10-10 for exactly two years now, so I thought it was time to check my blood levels again. It's not a very extensive test, but the results were fine except for two values: b12 and folic acid. 

 

B12 values were really low: 86 pmol/L, compared with 0.30 nmol/L (which is I believe 300pmol/L) almost exactly two years ago. The reference range here in the Netherlands is 130 - 700. Even though the value is clearly on the very low side, my doctor wasn't worried. According to her, the absorption of b12 in the cells was fine. I don't know how she came to this conclusion, since I did not speak to her personally.

 

Folic acid was 33.2 nmol/L, which is outside of the reference range of  5.1 to 31.1 here in The Netherlands.

 

The other values were all within normal range. My iron had actually improved a lot compared with my earlier test.

 

My own feelings about the folic acid and b12:

-I'm not going to worry about the folic acid, since I'm not taking any supplements. I guess the folic acid must be coming from all the fruits and veggies. 

-I'm going to worry about the b12 though. I will ask for b12 injections.

 

Any thoughts or suggestions?

Thanks, this I wanted to hear. Got a bit worried about this, to be honest.

Dont just believe me, look it up. 

A good book to read is 'could it be b12?'. Its got clinical references a plenty! :)

 

In cycling IV iron injections are common when taking EPO as the drug promotes RBC production like B12 can and you need extra iron. Of course EPO is a full blow PED and taking it when you dont need to can kill you vs a safe vitamin like b12.

Thanks, will read that too. I'm looking it up now...
will order it as well. Thanks Harley.
Ordered it yesterday, thanks.

My question is "should I took b12 injection only or took b-complex for better absorption".
