I was told that my B12 is low but I’m having trouble figuring out the numbers used to evaluate it… The level says it’s 8.8 can anyone help me with any info on this? I have been having numbness and tingling in my hands and my feet and I’m having some other issues but I just wanted to know for sure how low is this level and I can’t seem to find any information about it… As far as the level goes can anyone help?

I think you are reading the lab report wrong. Normal B12 is between 200-900 PG (picograms). Anything below 200 is considered a B12 deficiency. Why don't you call the lab and ask them. I know some lab reports are hard to read.
