Brief Answer:
Rule out liver or kidney problem.

Detailed Answer:
Hello and thank you for choosing "Ask a Doctor" service for your query,
Have seen your details,
Your B12 levels are high and it has no relation with vitamin C or potassium intake.
Most likely cause to rule out is problem with liver or kidney.
Liver cells when get destroyed releases vitamin B 12 and vitamin B 12 is excreted by kidney therefore we need to rule out any problem related to Liver or Kidney.
I would suggest you to go for few tests-
liver function test
Kidney function test
and a ultrasound of abdomen to rule out problem related to liver and kidney.
Hope I was helpful,
Thank you!
