Blood Test Update

Sorry that I didn't get back here sooner with the results! It is good news! All the tests for Celiac, Inflammatory Bowel, Crohn's etc.. are all fine. The only one out of wack is my Vitamin B12 (the nurse could have been MUCH more clear about that when she phoned!!)

So now I have to pick up a prescription and take it to the Dr.'s office and she will give me a B12 shot 3 days a week for the next 3 weeks, and then we will retest.

I will still have the ultra-sound and X-ray done to see if she can find what is causing me to not absorb B12. She wonders if I may have had a viral infection that caused gastroenteritis, so that the lining of my stomach is inflammed and not able to absorb it efficiently. Since my B12 level was perfectly fine when she did my blood work last year, this is something fairly recent.

I will also continue to take the Pantaloc for another month (since I've been feeling GREAT since I started it) and then I'll go off it for a month and see what happens.

So over all good news! My blood sugar was also fine, as was my cholesterol. WooHoo bring on the red wine and cheese!
