Hello there. I recently just ended a 15 day juice fast. While on day 13 I had some blood work done. My wbc was down to 3.0 and my vitamin b12 was up to 1342! My blood work from the fall showed my wbc was 3.8 and my b12 was 212. I had started taking b12 supplements but was only taking 1000 mcg/day - the suggested dose (actually it was less a lot of days as I often only remembered to take 2/3 of the pills most days). I was also told by a few different source that you can't over dose of b12 even if you take too many vitamins your body would pee it out...So my test results were very confusing to me.
I didn't feel better during or after the juice fast. Was very envious of those who report more energy as I am as chronically fatigued as ever.
There is a family history of leukemia in my family so concerned this may explain my lab results and the extreme low energy. AT this point my doctor is awaiting results from a second lab test but in the mean time thought I would see if the juice fast could be a possible explanation to my results? (also note my platelet count was a bit low at 142 and my neuts 1.5). I have a history of Hashimoto's but my thyroid levels all look to be in the optimal range...
