Do medications like silybon 70 & methylcobalamin impact serology blood test (CMIA)? One taken for slightly high bilirubin count & other to improveb12
Whoa: Get a second opinion. I'm a lab specialist and it's key that a scientific physician treats people, not lab values. Several percent of folks have Gilbert's with "slightly high bilirubin" and to propose to treat with milk thistle would be shabby as it requires no treatment. If you're B12 deficient and not a vegan, a reason needs to be sought. Neither will impact your HIV testing. Best wishes. ...Read more
Is methylcobalamin treat ACL injury of knee? What precaution or medication should use for this kind of injury?
Does not treat acl: Mehylcobalamin is a form of vitamin b12. It is used to tray vitamin B12 deficiency, as well as peripheral neuropathies. I see no data on its use in acl injuries or prevention of such. Leg strengthening especially the quads and hamstrings can help prevent t and get ready for surgery to repair acl tears. ...Read more

Which form of B12 is best for shots/injections and why? 1. Cyannocobalamin 2. Methylcobalamin 3. Hydroxicobalamin
Usually Methyl but..: One thing is clear- Cyano is worst- it has small amounts of cyanide the body must detox & convert it to an active form; little is converted. Methyl is the active form, esp. Good for those with MTHFR mutations & neurological symptoms & best for most. Some do better with Hydroxo. Experts agree Hydroxo better than Cyano but haven't seen many comparisons of Met vs. Hydr.

By doctor prescribed me cerefolin he said it helps for OCD, is that true? Please explain why it would help. Thanks
Maybe.: Vitamins in cerefolin, vitamin b12, folic acid are believed to be important in the production of the neurotransmitters serotonin and dopamine. Especially the former. The police says, that's by providing more vitamin b12, it enhance its production of serotonin and that's help with OCD symptoms. It is worth a try. ...Read more
Pernicious aenemia is it ok to take B12 5000mg methylcobalamin tablets in between B12 3mothly injections? Thanks
YES: B12 injections should be adequate but it is definitely ok to take tablets too- there is no known toxicity from too much b12. For best results your injections should also be methylcobalamin, next best hydroxycobalamin. Avoid cyanocobalamin- see http://www. Naturalnews.

I have been taking methylcobalamin sublingual daily 1000mcg am and 1000mcg om and symtoms keep getting worse almost can't function. What else can Ido?
What symptoms?: 2, 000mcg daily is a lot of vitamin B12. You didn't mention what/which symptoms are getting worse, so it's time to go see your Family Doc for thorough evaluation, including indepth history & examination plus labs as deemed appropriate.

Similar: The methyl form is biologically active, and will directly interact with receptors, but in most cases, the body will convert the other form readily, so in the end, there is equivalency. ...Read more
Yes: No problem.Get a more detailed answer ›
Methylcobalamin: Methylcobalamin is by far the best form of vitamin b12. This is the co-enzymated active form that our bodies use. When we take Cyanocobalamin our bodies must first convert it into methylcobalamin, so it is better to take the active form and save your body the trouble of making this conversion. See http://www.

Not necessarily: Why do you wish to take a multivitamin, as recent studies suggest people have worse outcomes when they do take vitamins in that form. Also, many of the standard multivitamins do not dissolve in the gut, so not absorbed. Methylcobalamin is the biologically active form, and is present in medical foods, prescription items, but may be available in health food stores. ...Read more
Unlikely: Cerefolin is more like a vitamin so it is unlikely to cause confusion. When one has dementia, confusion can come and go. That being said, if there is an increase in confusion shortly after taking it and this doesn't happen at other times and continues to happen with use perhaps there is something specific about the person and the formulation that doesn't agree. ...Read more

It is approved by the food and drug administration for treatment or prevention of vitamin deficiencies. The dosage is to be determined by individual doctors. You must chat with your physician.

See below: Cerefolin contains B12, folate, (folic acid) Riboflavin and pyridoxine. You may take Vitamin B complex and muti-vitamin with and you will be taking some of the same vitamins multiple times.

Why do that?: If your physician recommended it to be done this way I would ask them for their reasoning. Otherwise, I don't see the logic in doing 2 separate injections of cobalamin as you suggest. I would choose one formulation and provide my patient with a single injection with the proper amount I wanted them to receive and be done. ...Read more

I'm 19, female, and I need the right methylcobalamin injections dosage for low B12 = 128 with depression symptoms.
Seek out cause: At your age, pernicious anemia is unusual, and would wonder about an intestinal parasite causing lack of b-12 absorption. A quest for the etiology is of value, as some autoimmune disorders may cause havoc with other organ systems. Treatment is best given via, intramuscular injections provided at least once monthly, 1, 000 mcg each. Please consult a hematologist and psychiatrist. ...Read more
B12 as methylcobalamin or B12 as cyanocobalamin - which one is safer/better and in what form : pills or sublingual?
No difference: 2 mg oral is supposed to be as good as sub lingual. I usually recommend 1.7 mg SL liquid every week for 2 months then once every 2 weeks thereafter. I recommend maintaining a level of 550 at all times. One should also check folate (folic acid) level and make sure that is OK. If anemic and you are replacing B12 its wise to check for low potassium as correction of the anemia can deplete K+ stores. ...Read more

You're demethylating: Too quickly. You should work with a doctor who understands fully the integrative medical protocols used for remethylation. If you are having side effects, niacin in small amounts (nicotinic acid) can reverse it quickly. Check Dr. Lynch's MTHFR.
