Your blood tests show that your vitamin B12 level is ‘borderline’ low. B12 has several important functions in the body, including keeping the nervous system healthy. Vitamin B12 is found in meat, fish, eggs, dairy products, yeast extract (such as Marmite) and specially fortified foods.
It is important that we repeat your B12 bloods test in 8-12 weeks time, and we would be grateful if you could ring the surgery to arrange this. I have enclosed a form for this test.
