I take b12, along with vitamin c, every morning. My blood results came back with a B12 deficiency and a white blood cell count of 3.4. Why?

In brief: B12 def

If despite taking oral b12.
Your counts are low that means there is problem in absorption of B12 vitamin and therefore you should take the intramuscular shot of B12 1 mg once a month. B12 def can lead to leukopenia. Keep taking vit c.
