B12 def: Are you vegetarian or vegan, they have B12 issues at times because B12 sources are animal. May also be ileitis or intestinal issues where B12 is absorbed ( if not pernicious anemia) or dietary/ age. If you are on injections and you level are adequate ( I like above 400) I would not be concerned ,don't worry
