A 27-year-old male asked:

I have been feeling very fatigue for a few months now. went to my gp and she took some bloods, fbc, iron levels, vitamin b12 reading, tsh and t4. everything else was fine except for the b12, it was 715. could this be the cause to my feeling fatigue?

No: B12 level of 715 would not explain the symptoms. It may seem counter-intuitive, but exercise may help. Start with low intensity exercise, such as walking and gradually increase the intensity. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex, if you have sex.
