We had a urine test for my 16 month old son, and the levels came back elevated 14 (refrence range was 5 or less), my peditricain said it wasn't significant.
He agreed to order a blood test- that came back (b12 serum) as 265 - the range was 250-1100 for 5yrs and up ?
He said originally - b12 is not a problem. ?

Can someone tell me is it significant ?
