Why a child (12 years old) would have an elevated Vitamin B12 & Folate RBC??

ETA: the lab results came in over the weekend, can't reach the doctor til tomorrow to ask, she doesn't take any type of vitamin, not even the gummies (she hates anything gummy)

Because those gummi vitamins are too delicious to take just one?

 


Don't text and drive. 


That doesn't mean you can look at your phone at red lights or stop signs or if you think you can do it quickly or if traffic's slow.  Just don't.  You're an adult.  Exercise some impulse control.  Quit driving like a 4 year old.

Cute but she doesn't take vitamins at all.

Since they are both water soluble vitamins, her ingesting them is the most reasonable likelihood.  What did the doc say?

What do you water soluble vitamins?  The only thing she really takes her is Pediasure (prescribed by a doctor) and then eats a few things here and there.  The results came in this morning, I am calling the doctor first thing tomorrow morning..

Vitamin B shouldn't be at elevated levels because it's a water soluble vitamin meaning it flushes out naturally in urine.

Vitamins A,D,E and K are all fat soluble so large amounts get stored in adipose tissue (fat cells) and a large accumulation can cause liver damage over time. I'd say ask your doctor about it if it concerns you. Vitamin B is also matabolized by what is called intrinsic factor within the stomach. If intrinsic factor is compromised, vitamin B will not be properly absorbed into the body, but that would show low b levels. Not sure if that helps you.

Water soluble as opposed to fat soluble.  Water soluble vitamins are easily flushed from the system.  If she tested high yesterday the most likely reason would be something she ate/took.  And then she probably wouldn't if she were tested again tomorrow.

Google says it could be liver or kidney related. Google also says it is absolutely not caused by ingesting too many vitamins or high b12 foods. It's not necessarily anything serious. I would just wait until speaking with the doc and not speculate. You're going to drive yourself crazy.
