Low Iron, B12 and Folate Levels
For the past year now my Iron, B12 and folate levels have been up and down. I have been put on B12 injections regualy wich seem to work, however my iron and folates were low again recently my doctore put me on 2 tablets 3 times a day. They have done test for absorbtion and celiac, thirod,but everything was ok. I am having a number of symptons like extream tiredness, headaches, dizziness ,really sore tounge with patches on it, also bruising easily. I am just worried as I am only 28 had no previouse health issues. What could it be.
Sounds like beriberi but would need to examine to know what your antigliadin levels are, calcium, magnesium, and Vitamin D levels.
