Hi Doctor, My B12 blood test was too high 2000 what could be the reason although my liver test ok

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Hi there. Thank you for your question. I will be helping you out with your queries

Customer:

hi thank you

Dr. Shahzad MD :

welcome

Dr. Shahzad MD :

well, B12 being a bit too high does not indicate anything serious in the vast majority of cases

Dr. Shahzad MD :

So I would not worry actually particularly if all the other labs are normal.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Are you with me?

Customer:

yes

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Any more questions?

Customer:

but why is it too high

Dr. Shahzad MD :

You may be taking a bit too much of it in your diet.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Liver disease is one thing that can cause high levels but your liver enzymes are okay.

Customer:

not really doctor I eat normal with no diet or any vitamins that is why I got worried

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Some forms of leukemias can cause this to be high but with leukemia you would have most certainly had other abnormalities on your labs.

Customer:

like what doctor

Dr. Shahzad MD :

If you had leukemia your complete blood count would not have been normal.

Customer:

and how can lower it to normal level

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Avoid foods that contain high vitamin B12 levels.

Customer:

ok doc thank you
