High B12: Yes this is a high vitamin B12 level but that level will do no harm as the unneeded portion is simply excreted by the body. Only massive elevation can strain the liver. You are able to reduce your intake of this vitamin in case you're taking a supplement as, unless you have no stomach acid, your body can absorb B12 from many foods like dairy products, meats and seafood.
