A female asked:
What can cause high active (holotranscobalamin) b12 levels in blood, when red & white cell & platelet counts, liver & kidney function are all normal?

It's just you: This test itself is not mainstream. It is experimental. A high value on a B12 is never a clinical concern. Reference ranges at real labs are set so that a few percent of healthy folks fall outside on either end.
