High B-12 and folate blood levels, but symptoms similar to a deficiency
Can high B-12 levels cause symptoms similar to a deficiency?
I read that the B vitamins are water soluble and the excess is excreted. But my 15-year-old daughter has had high levels of B-12 and folate since she was 8-years-old. I began taking her to doctors because of extreme fatigue, migraine headaches, difficulties sleeping, and just not feeling good. Her first test at 8, the B-12 was 1097 (180-914 scale), folate was 18.4 (normal: 3.0 ng/ml). Her endocrinologist concluded that she was allergic to milk. Going off of milk did nothing to help the fatigue and migraines.
Over the years, her condition is worsening and she is becoming extremely anxious and depressed. Again, her levels were checked and they are slightly higher than before, but the doctors just ignore the whole issue. We finally went to see a Naturopath who recommended magnesium and that has stopped the migraines, but her mental condition is still very anxious and depressed. Have you ever encountered this before?
