Elevated B12

Recommended Posts

My neurologist recently ordered a lot of blood work in order to rule out other conditions that might be causing my PD symptoms. The most abnormal result (besides my normally low glucose) was an extremely elevated B12 as it was over 2000. I was wondering what the cause of this might be?

 

 

Thank you for all of your help. This forum has been a wealth of information.

Usually we worry about low B12 not high.

 

When we see levels over 1000 we look for liver disease and for blood diseases (check a blood liver profile and a blood profile for red and white blood cells as well as platelets).

 

Excess B12 is disposed of in the urine.

My RBC was slightly low and my glucose was quite low. Most other results were relatively normal. Should I request any further testing?

 

Thank you.

I would request a liver battery and suggest discussing with an internist. You are probably ok.
