Dr. Shahzad MD :

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

Dr. Shahzad MD :

A higher than normal vitamin B12 is usually not something to worry about in the vast majority of cases.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Although you will find some scary things on the internet when you google high vitamin B12 levels but trust me if all your other labs are normal I would not worry.

JACUSTOMER-uckh305x- :

I have read that it could mean a marker for cancers?

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Yes, like I said, if you google high vitamin B12 levels you will find some scary things.

JACUSTOMER-uckh305x- :

Why is mine so doubled?thats what scaring me?

Dr. Shahzad MD :

But if all your other labs are normal I would not worry at all.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

In blood cancers or leukemias you would have your complete blood counts all messed up.

JACUSTOMER-uckh305x- :

my gfr is a bigger than 90 or around 90

Dr. Shahzad MD :

that is good

JACUSTOMER-uckh305x- :

what if had another cancer like lung, or breast or sth else?

Dr. Shahzad MD :

This is not an indication of any other type of cancer.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Like I mentioned if your liver, kidney, complete blood count tests are normal..... which are routine tests done in everyone.... you have nothing to worry about.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Just relax

Dr. Shahzad MD :

You are thinking about this too much.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

and please do not google it again :)

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Are you with me?

JACUSTOMER-uckh305x- :

what is b12 ST6341?

Dr. Shahzad MD :

I do not know

Dr. Shahzad MD :

I do know that you are fine

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Are you there?

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Anymore questions?

JACUSTOMER-uckh305x- :

thanks so what if the vitamin b12 keeps staing elevated?

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Even if it stays at this level and your other tests remain normal, I would not worry a bit.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

I personally get patients in my clinics day in and day out these kind of levels who have nothing.

JACUSTOMER-uckh305x- :

where is your clinic

Dr. Shahzad MD :

I practice in Dubai currently.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Anymore questions?

Dr. Shahzad MD :
