This is serious: If you are truly B12 deficient (there are some crooked labs), you need to find the cause, and also an explanation for the lack of iron in your blood (poor diet, blood loss from periods, into gut, etc). I hope that if you are a vegetarian, you are taking appropriate supplements so as not to ruin your health. Please let your physician give you a complete workup, and also seek other possible causes.
