Macrocytosis, vitamin D deficiency. Moderate drinker. Any advice?
hi, i m a 30 year old female with mild macrocytosis - levels generally between 1001 & 103. Vitamin b12 and folic acid . Have vitamin d deficiency. Only drink moderately on social occasions. Do you have any advice? Is it worth taking a vitamin b12 supplement . I am worried that this will cause problems for my baby if i become pregnant one day. Appreciate your advice.
thanks for the query, it looks like the macrocytois in you is not due to vit b 12 deficiency. the next step would be to approach a haematologist for the same and undergo a bone marrowbiopsy and aspiration test
