High Vitamin B12 Levels in the Blood - Causes and Cures...
On a routine vitamin B12 test, the result has come back at 865 pmol. The comment was "raised levels could indicate liver or renal or myeloproliferative disease". Please could you give me some advice on what this could mean & what I could do next.
Hi Colleen, and thanks for your question regarding high vitamin B12 levels.
Firstly, these thoughts and recommendations are purely my own and I'm not a doctor (I always like to put this in just to cover myself). With that said, the first course of action you should pursue is getting a confirmed diagnosis on what exactly is causing the problem. That way you know exactly what you're dealing with and you can then treat it successfully. Take the time to read this excellent article on high vitamin B12 levels and what it means so you have a better understanding of what is going on... High Vitamin B12: What Does That Mean?
The main cause of elevated vitamin B12 levels is usually an ailing liver, so I would start taking a good liver tonic, along with the milk thistle herb
(this amazing herb helps to repair and regenerate the liver). Rectifying any nutritional imbalances/deficiencies is also crucial so taking a good quality vitamin/mineral/amino acid/probiotic supplement such as this one
is absolutely vital.
Taking the supplements listed above are not harmful either. In fact, they will help your body tremendously! These can be safely taken straight away, even while you are getting a thorough diagnosis done.
Hope this helps you Colleen.
Good luck and all the best,
