It seems as though I have taken up my old “research assistant” title and delved into the world of B12 and its disorders. Well, we (my daughter but I find that I too place myself within the folds of her diagnosis) started with being diagnosed with methylmalonic acidemia type CBLF (very very rare stuff) - but recently dropped the severity of the CBLF. Now blood work is showing no defect for methylmalonic, uh, awesome! The defect is showing more towards transcobalamin 2. Very hard words to understand, very complicated stuff to understand.
One against the other? Well, one (methylmalonic) is very protein controlled in diet (harder than being a vegan in my opinion) and the other is not protein controlled at all!
We understand that replacing B12 in her body is a life thing - ok, we can handle that.
Now I know I will be holding my breath, but on several sites I see the words “complete recovery” when referencing “transcobalamin 2 deficiency.”
