Low Methymalonic Acid

by Michelle
(San Clemente)

I keep reading about high MMA, but my MMA is low 75 (lab range 87-318). 2 years ago my B12 was 1,100 and 3 months ago it was 451. I take 2,400 mcg sublingual of B12. What does a low methymalonic acid level mean?

Thank you!

Low Methylmalonic Acid

A low methylmalonic acid means that you have normal B12 levels, or you are taking Vitamin B12. It's meaningless and to continue taking MMA tests when you are on B12, and is a waste of time and money. Not sure why your doctor would be doing repeat MMA tests when you are on Vitamin B12. There's just no reason for it.

Why would a person have a low MMA blood level and low B12 levels accompanied by extreme muscle weakness and neurological problems? If too much MMA effects the body, what would a level of 40 indicate?
