My internal medicine doctor checked by B12 which was low. He gave me a shot and I followed up with a hematologist the next week. He rechecked the B12 which was normal and said my methylmalonic blood test was normal. He wants to recheck my B12 in four months. Should he have done the urine methylmalonic test and is testing B12 right after a shot accurate?
