Curious to know what our average B-12 level should be with EDS? Mine is around 283. Should I be getting B-12 injections or taking B-12 supplements?
Hi Ashton, I hear from so many of us that we are deficient for many reasons. OUr family went on injections (and my son — needle-phobe — went on patches and the high-dose oral). Labs differ in what they consider “normal”. My friend “Wiki” says: Normal values are 200 – 900 pg/mL (picograms per milliliter). Did you google the symptoms of deficiency? I had them all! No more, though… If you are having symptoms, I would see if your doctor wouldn’t mind getting your level to “upper-normal” and see if that helps! BTW, pain doctors will often inject B12 right into the affected joint. Interesting, huh? 😉
