Brief Answer: Refer below Detailed Answer: Hi, Thanks for consulting HealthcareMagic! You have slight decrease in Hgb, which is common for your age and medical history of neoplasm. Not a big problem. Whereas, regarding B12- Normal range is 210 to 900 pg/dl approximately. I think that this increase is also related to Medical History of Pancreatic mucinous neoplasm. Increased levels of Vitamin B12 leve may sometimes be associated with a serious disease some blood disorders like polycythemia vera, hypereosinophilic syndrome can result in increased Vitamin B12. Several liver diseases like acute hepatitis, cirrhosis etc can also result in the increase of Vitamin B12 level. Anyhow if there is elevation of Vitamin B12 levels, a complete diagnostic work up is needed to assess the presence of diseases as mentioned above. Complete blood picture and similar investigations with physical exam can up get proper idea. I do not think that the levels of Hgb and B12 are causing your symptoms. Follow up with your doctor is needed. Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if you have have any clarifications. If not, you can close the discussion and rate the answer.

I suggest to get complete blood picture which includes the cell counts of different blood cells. Based on it, we can talk further. Fasting blood sugar of 108 is normal.
