My blood levels are very poor and my PCP is now sending me to a hematologist next week for a consult. Since my initial bloodwork was done in July, I had a celiac blood panel come back negative and a GI bleed was ruled out by a recent colonoscopy and capsule endoscopy (pillcam - very fascinating test!). My B12 levels are very good - one of the few levels that are normal.
I don't understand this at all. If it is not a GI bleed he said it might be malabsorption problem. Can you have malabsorption due to PPI's if your B12 is normal? Has anyone here developed iron deficiency anemia as a result of taking PPI's?
