Normal Range B12 eg155 ng/L Range 130.00-800.00ng/L would be good idea to supplement with Methylcobalamin
Tablets and diet to meet Mid Range level?
Depends: I agree that 155 is a low normal finding. What can be done to better corroborate any true deficiency would be homocysteine in serum & urine as well as serum methylmalonic acid. If those numbers are elevated then, the 155 likely represents a deficient state. In addition, are there clinical signs of deficiency?

What are normal levels for vitamin d 25 oh? And can u get a low grade fever if the vitamin d levels are low?
Prefer at least 30: The range of 25-oh vitamin d levels believed to be adequate by physicians ranges from approx. 20 to 70 ng/ml, depending on who you talk to. There is some evidence from controlled studies that vitamin d supplementation lowers all-cause mortality. I favor achieving a level of at least 30 ng/ml. I'm not aware of a link between vitamin d and fever, and doubt your post-ovulation temp is true fever. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Consider hyperpara : These labs are borderline for hyperparathyroidism. The low vitamin D may be pushing the PTH up, but that doesn’t explain the borderline elevated calcium.

Wouldn't take: antacid at the same time you are taking your supplements b/c you are reducing UR stomach acidity further that you need that to digest or help your MVI (multivitamin) get absorbed better. B12 can be taken alone sublingual. It's not digested. You can take it along with your MVI (multivitamin), and Vitamin C. Space your calcium tablet separately as it can act like an antacid itself (Tums?) Greens can interfere with Ca absorption. ...Read more
