A blood test showed that i'm B12 deficient. Serum B12 level of 186 pg/ml, should I take vitamin B12 supplements?

B12: this low will likely cause dementia, spinal cord degeneration and peripheral neuropathy. Keep your level above 550 for the rest of your life. Recovery takes about a year in a young person. I suggest you take liquid sublingual weekly for 3 months then bi weekly thereafter. Its important to check a level after you cut back to twice a month. Use 1 1/2 dropper and hold it under the tongue for 30 sec. ...Read more

My vitamin D level is 13 out of 30 after blood test. I was prescribed D2, which made me sick and doctor said not to take anymore. How do I increase?

My vitamin D level is 13 out of 30 after blood test. I was  prescribed  D2, which made me sick and doctor said not to take anymore. How do I increase?

Get some sun!: Docs will often prescribe 2000 IU of Vitamin D daily to patients that are deficient or 50,000 IU once a month. They may prescribe more for severe deficiency. If you cannot tolerate the pills, a little sun will do the trick. Too much sun we worry about skin cancer, but if you are fair skinned 10 minutes in the mid-day sun will provide you with 10,000 IU. This would not be a great risk skin cancer. ...Read more

Is a blood level of vitamin B12 of 951pg/ml in a 10 months old child dangerous?

Is a blood level of vitamin B12 of 951pg/ml in a 10 months old child dangerous?

No: That's the serum level of cyanocobalamin. What's more important is looking at the intracellular levels. Having lower values is more dangerous than having higher values. Cyanocobalamin is the B vitamin that helps attach the oxygen molecule to the hemoglobin in red blood cells to deliver oxygen to tissues. So it's very important! ...Read more

Do i have to fast before i take a vitamin level blood test?

Do i have to fast before i take a vitamin level blood test?

No! Fasting of?Value: Fasting for most issues not only of low value but often misleading. Ex.: people commonly told to fast before blood glucose test; yet Diabetes Mellitus=elevated blood glucose & glucose most commonly elevated after eating. Thus fasting glucose routinely misses Diabetes Mellitus. Fasting is promoted for only a few issues because how databases were done or because the values are calculated/estimated. ...Read more

What vitamins can be prescribed to help lower blood cholesterol levels?

Niacin.: Supplementing with 2000-3000mg of flush free Niacin daily can help to control your cholesterol levels quite nicely, even increasing your HDL and converting your LDL to a less harmful subtype. As a negative, Niacin can cause facial flushing and redness so get the flush free variety. And have your liver enzyme values monitored, as they can be affected by Niacin use. ...Read more

What vitamins increase blood to the scalp?

What vitamins increase blood to the scalp?

None of them: If this question is driven by a desire to avoid or treat male pattern baldness, you are also badly misinformed about the nature of the process. All men lose the hair on their templates at about age 20; i see that you are 22. Many men, especially those blessed with abundant chest hair, have the process continue. Your options are surgery, medical rx, or deciding you're happy with it. ...Read more
