When I got all of my bloodwork back, my Vitamin B12 level was very low )48 with normal levels 228-1132. I'm getting weekly B12injections. My iron, calcium were very normal. Folic acid and megnesium, potassium were in the low normal range. I was wondering if anyone had a B12 level markedly low, with normal iron who has been diagnosed Celiac? I do not have pernicious anemia, so the only other possibilities that I think could cause that (I had a negative biopsy) are h. pylori and/or low stomach acid. Also I think B12 is absorbed lower in the small intestine, which wasn't biopsied, so maybe that is where my damage is? If there is damege.

My B12 level falls within the normal ranges and I still do a sublingual 1200 mcg B12 supplement daily. I have peripheral neuropathy now as a result of celiacs and they tell us that normal ranges are not high enough for us. B12 deficiencies open the door for other diseases to come in--try to keep your levels up--ok. Deb

Hey Slpinsd,

I also had low vitamin B levels and my doctor suggested a vitamin B complex. A few of my other levels were also low--vitamin D, magnesium, and calcium. Because we have celiac disease, we haven't been absorbing nutrients properly. Have you had a bone scan done to check for osteoporsis?

On your neuropathy, did your feet (heels, arches) hurt, even in the middle of the night? Or was it mostly tingling, burning? I've been having the foot and muscle pain

My husband also gets B12 injections. His levels were low also (under the normal range) and he had normal iron levels also. He has recently had increased liver enzymes in his last bloodwork. He is getting the injections now once monthly he was getting them biweekly. The doctor said his levels were coming up now but he wants him to continue with the injections monthly.

Can some of you tell me what your symptoms were?

This is a very old thread and it's likely the original posters aren't even active on the forum any more so it's doubtful they will even see your post.

The most obvious symptoms for me were parasthesias which are numbness and tingling in my hands and feet and fatigue.

Sublingual B12 helped me a great deal.
