Keep in mind I'd started supplementing 5000mcg b12 in addition to what is in my multi and b complex last Saturday. I missed Wednesday, I think.
B12 high @1296
Hematocrit and hemoglobin a tiny bit high
MCV towards high end of normal
Neutrophils a tiny bit high
Iron up to 51
Ferritin down to 27
TIBC up to 238
I think it may have been the b12 or...I'm dying. Lol. You?
Oh. Vitamin d 29.7
B12 high @1296
May I ask what that means ? and what is "normal" at your lab?MCV towards high end of normal
The mean corpuscular volume, or "mean cell volume"(MCV), is a measure of the average volume of a red blood corpuscle (or red blood cell). The measure is attained by multiplying a volume of blood by the proportion of blood that is cellular (the hematocrit (or haematocrit)), and dividing that product by the number of erythrocytes (red blood cells) in that volume. The mean corpuscular volume is a part of a standard complete blood count. In a laboratory test that computes MCV, erythrocytes are compacted during centrifugation.
In patients with anemia, it is the MCV measurement that allows classification as either a microcytic anemia (MCV below normal range), normocytic anemia (MCV within normal range) or macrocytic anemia (MCV above normal range). Normocytic anemia is usually deemed so because the bone marrow has not yet responded with a change in cell volume. It occurs occasionally in acute conditions, namely blood loss and hemolysis.

Can one's B12 test come back fine (that is actually fine) like 550 and on up, but the person still have B12 issues, such as the B12 not doing what is should in the body
