Most likely not: Vitamin b6 can cause neurological changes like paresthesias, but not usually with doses under 200 mg/day. These also dissipate when the dosing is stopped. If you're concerned about the amount of b6 in your vitamin, you could stop it for several weeks to see how or if your symptoms change. Please work with your doctor on this, since more evaluation may be needed. ...Read more

Should any pediatric endo doc's use adult 11.25 im (3 month slow release dose) on a child every 28days 4 precious puberty for 1 year? Why / why not?

Should any pediatric endo doc's use adult 11.25 im (3 month slow release dose) on a child every 28days 4 precious puberty for 1 year? Why / why not?

Usually not: The 3- month prep is used every 3 months. Studies have shown its effectiveness suppressing gonadotropins in children using it that way. I've not encountered it used monthly, nor are there published studies using that formulation monthly. If 11.25 mg isn't working, there is an effective 30 mg dose which is used every 3 months. The supprelin implant which is annually replaced is also very effective. ...Read more

My B6 levels were tested twice. I take no supplements/don't eat many veggies. My B6 was 246 where the avg range is 2.1 to 21.7. Who do I see next?

Check the units: Vitamin b6 toxicity doesn't occur unless a person is taking too many b6 supplements. If lab values look wrong, one can double check the units of measurement, and maybe do the test again but at a different lab (be sure the sample is going to a different "send out" lab if the sample is being sent out to a specialty lab). ...Read more

Yes, however...: This should be safe. However, elevated homocysteine increases your risk of heart disease and stroke. This is genetic so your child may have high homocysteine which should be treated from a young age. You should add trimethylglycine to your program. Many with high homocysteine do better with the l-5-mthf form of folic acid- this can help depression too. Adjust doses until your levels come to normal. ...Read more
