    high b12-vittamin and cold feet
    Hi, I am 63-years old lady from Finland. MY feet have been starting feel cold. Like the wind around them. Especially when I go to sleep. My values of the blood are OK, execp my b12-vitamin value is high. 689pmol/l. The levels are 140-490pmol/l. The docs said that high level doesn't mean anything. But why my feet feel so cold?

    Vitamin B12 is used in the formulation of red blood cells (one of the functions) the other is your autoimmune system. However, only one of these may be the problem for your cold feet, and I am not saying B12 is the culprit.

    It sounds like a circulatory issue. Ask your doctor if a blood thinner, 8lmg aspirin is right for you. At 63 a woman is no longer old in the sense it was 30 years ago.

    On the minus side, a lot of people have cold feet and especially at night when laying down takes the circulation minimally away from the lower extremeties.

    Do you have any other health issues ?

    Arthritis isn't such a big concern if you know how to deal with it. I use an anti imflammatory but I don't know what you mean by 'pulver' .

    Edit: sorry, you do mean arthrosis, misunderstood thinking we had a language barrier here.

    Additional information for others reading this thread.


    Arthritis and arthrosis are very common connective tissue diseases. In arthritis, the problem is an inflammation of the bones, joints, and tendons. Chronic arthritis can lead to arthrosis, a degradation of cartilage in the joints. The cartilage can lose its elasticity, become rough and lose mass. This can result in the deformation of the cartilage. Both arthritis and arthrosis are very painful diseases, with all the typical symptoms of inflammation, including fever, reddening, and swelling. Joints may also become stiff.

    the pulver is glucosamin. They took x-ray and told , it is arthrosis

    Yes, as you can see I posted the information on arthrosis/arthritis. I know glucosamine but usually take it as glucosamine/controidtin combination for joints and ligaments.

    I see you are being pretty well taken care.
