I considered talking to my GP about it, but is it worth checking homocysteine and MMA now that I have brought my serum B12 up to a solid level? I guess what I'm asking is, could doing these tests show something else that's "off" in me? Could they explain why I stil feel awful, actually worse than ever? I have had no improvement at all and I started B12 injections almost 4 months ago. Should I ask for these to be done? Thank you!
NHE wrote:What might be more important is what type of B12 injection you're using. The most common form is cyanocobalamin. However, this form has a low retention rate in the body. Some people who have not responded to cyanocobalamin shots have done better with the hydroxocobalamin form. This type can easily be converted by the body into both active forms, methylcobalamin and adenosylcobalamin (the latter of which is the primary form stored by the liver).
