All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Talk to the doctor who ordered the tests. Having said that, elevated B12 is generally not serious. Some people with chronic inflammation have elevated B12. Wish you good health!
