Common or Normal
by: Kerri Knox, RN

Hi Ans,

Do you want to know if it's common, or if it's normal. It might be common, but it's not normal. I'm not sure if you mean that you have iron deficiency anemia, or if you have Macrocytic Anemia though. They are two entirely different conditions that are completely unrelated to each other.

In any case, if you have high B12 levels without supplementation, then you almost certainly have MTHFR Gene. While the gene is 'common', it's not 'normal'It's common to have Macrocytic anemia with the MTHFR gene. This means that you have a functional Vitamin B12 deficiency while also having high B12 levels. It's the 'hallmark' sign of MTHFR.
