This Is MS Multiple Sclerosis Community: Knowledge & Support
Welcome to the world's leading forum on Multiple Sclerosis research, support, and knowledge. For over 10 years, This is MS has provided an unbiased community dedicated to Multiple Sclerosis patients, caregivers, and affected loved ones.
I was diagnosed with MS back in 2001, but was never tested for B12.
Recently, I was prompted to get B12 level checked by several young family members who had recently tested low for B12 (200-300). Their doc (not knowing me) told their mom (my sister) that they should get on supplements since it could lead to future health issues (including possibly MS). When they told him that I had MS, he suggested I get tested, too.
Test results are back, and I also have low levels (340) according to my doc.
What are the best ways to increase levels? I eat plenty of B12 rich foods, so does this mean I am not absorbing it properly? If so, should I try sublingual or injections?
