I was diagnosed with a B12 deficiency 5 years ago had a level in the low 200 and neuro symptoms. I was given one shot and 30 days of pills and i still have a lot of symptoms.I was retested in the 500's. What should I do?
How long it might take to replete the B12 storage in the body from low 200pg/ml and see improvement in deficiency symptoms, with a 1000mcg/day dose?
