Hi I have a low folate (folic acid) high WBC, I have alopeca lost my hair all in month, dizziness headaches, high Bp (heart disease in family) so tired, Ty?
Lifestyle therapy: The most concerning symptom is the hair loss which could be congenital, caused by medications/drug, or thyroid problems. Low folate (folic acid) is usually caused by inadequate intake (try broccoli, Brussels sprouts, asparagus), and elevated WBC is often associated with smoking. I don't see one diagnosis. Have a good check up and then focus on lifestyle: heathy eating, activity, sleep, stress management.

I read somwhere taking more then 15mg folic acid causes problems with absorb zinc. So can I take them separate. I.E 15mg B9 morning & zinc in evening.
May not be an issue: Good question. Some studies have shown that in those who had low zinc levels taking Folic Acid reduced zinc absorption ; utilization. Others have shown taking Folic Acid improves zinc absorption ; still others show no significant interaction! It does not seem to be an issue for most. You can try separating them but it may not be necessary. See http://lpi. Oregonstate. Edu/infocenter/minerals/zinc/.

Homocysteine 10.9 normal is lower than 10.4. B12 folic acid came back normal. So what else can cause it to be high?
