Diagnosed with Macrocytosis
I have just been diagnosed with macrocytosis. My last blood test was in June of 2012 and all blood tests were normal. I have been on humira for one year for Crohn's. In November I went to the Dr. for a torn gastrocnemius muscle and my blood pressure was 180/105 Because of the concern I evaluated my diet and although healthy, it was loaded with salt.
I made changes in my diet to eliminate sodium unless it occurs naturally. I eat vegetables over either rice or pasta, fruits, and nuts for protein. I do not eat dairy and meat has gone by the wayside in the last two months. I started taking a B-complex supplement three months. I am an exercise fanatic and have worked out daily my entire life. I have another blood test in a month to look at my B-12 levels. I am looking for another opinion on what is causing this malfunction in my blood cells. I have read that medications that cause the immune system to fail can be the culprit but any thoughts would be appreciated.
