High blood B12 pooling. But Low in cells. Means your not absorbing.

What test showed this? Spectro cell?

Can be Gene issue(s) (?)

Are you supplimenting b12? yes? then :

Try a different type of b12. There are at least 4 types.

I "pool" cheap b6, I need the good stuff, then my cells use it, no more pooling. Labs after showed this too. In my case, its genes.

This did not occure with my b12 though.

I think what you are describing could be caused by bartonella. I read something about bartonella and B12 levels somewhere. Bartonella can also affect the size of your blood cells, if I'm remembering correctly.

Also have you asked your doctor if any of the antibiotics you are taking could be affecting your B vitamin absorption? And there are different forms of B12. I don't know if certain ones get into cells better.

Supplement with Hydroxcobalamin. It acts more as a cobalamin transport. Dr Yasko usually uses it and Adenosylcobalamin together.

Your issue could be from something as simple as you having a deficiency of Zinc (which needs to be examined) or it could be something complex like the B-12 being high to decrease ethanolamine ammonia-lysase which ultimately forms ethanol and acetyl-CoA. I would examine for potential internal fungal issues and what you eat may be telling. The anti-candida diet would be something to examine and many on this forum could give you info on it.

This sounds like a GI problem and I would reduce animal protein intake.
