No: There's a fairly common form of leukemia in which B12 tends to go up. If your CBC is normal, you can be as confident that you do not have this particular form of leukemia as you can be confident you are not pregnant. Relax, friend. Everybody has a few labs out of range. You'll simply make your life harder than it already is if you let this stuff bother you. Be glad for good health.
