I have recurrent miscarriages and my recent blood tests showed low vitamin D, high B12 & Folate.

Has anyone experienced similar?

Thank you

I haven't had recurrent miscarriages, but I'm struggling to conceive and I had extremely low vitamin D (doctor had never seen such low levels), my B12 was OK but the Folate was too low.

I switched from pills to sprays and liquid supplements and my next set of blood tests was much better.

I have always had minimal vitamin D - turned out I had a thyroid problem and before it became hypothyroid I would have been producing antibodies. Also did they check your homocystene levels alongside the B12/folate? If not get them to look - high levels could indicate a MTHR folic acid malabsorption mutation

Thank you both, I will ask the doctor at my follow up appointment about your suggestions xx

That's interesting. I'm currently trying to figure out if I have some thyroid problems. I had high thyroid antibodies but my other levels (THS and T3&4) seemed fine.

I've recently moved between countries and the doctor I saw recently just told me to ignore the antibodies, which I did. But then I read an article about Hashimoto's the other day and watched some YouTube videos and I almost cried, because this was like reading about my life and all the health issues I've been having 😱 like all the pieces of the puzzle were finally fitting together.

But I'm worried he's just going to dismiss me again 😕

Hi everyone

@GrumpyHoonMain I had an MTHFR test which came back abnormal but I'm waiting to here what the treatment is for it xx
