Vitamin b6 normal range

Common Questions and Answers about Vitamin b6 normal range


Avatar f tn I recently had my vitamins and minerals checked and all were within range except for B6 which was 558 nmol/L (range 30-110 nmol/L). I was on a b complex (50mg b6) and multivitamin on and off for alot of last year just on days I felt a bit run down. When I got really ill last October I was pretty much taking my multi b (50mg b6) and multivitamin (25mg b6) every day up until I got my b6 result a couple of weeks ago.
Avatar n tn Hi, Regarding vitamin B6, a water soluble vitamin is essential for the normal and optimal functioning of the body. The Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA) is the average daily dietary intake level that is sufficient to meet the nutrient requirements. RDAs for vitamin B6 (in milligrams), are: 1.3 mg for men and women under age 50; 1.7 mg for men and 1.5 mg for women over the age of 50, 1.9 mg for pregnant women, and 2 mg for women who are breastfeeding.
Avatar m tn Hi, I have been having problems with peripheral neuropathy in my toes for several years. Finally saw a neurologist....most tests were normal but my vitamin B6 level was 506 (normal range is 20-96). Neuro said 'dont worry about it'. But....I am concerned about the high level of B6 as it is very high! It looks like he will not be too much help for my neuropathy as I think his next idea is to medicate. I would rather find the root of the problem. Btw, I do not take B6 supplements.
Avatar f tn I have a whole range of neurological symptoms including burning, weakness, and the "razor like pain" all over so well described by another writer. My vitamin B6 test just came back indicating that my levels were more than twice as high as the normal range. But here's the thing: I am not taking a vitamin B supplement or even a multiple-vitamin. Any ideas? I just started seeing a neurologist who has ordered a range of tests and have not gotten feedback from her yet.
Avatar f tn He called the result to me as it was very high. Normal range 5-30. Mine was 100. The test was fasting and I had not taken a vitamin for 24 hours. All I take is a multi daily. I have had tingling, numbness, paresthesias, twitching constantly for nearly 2 years with all normal test results...MRI's, spinal tap etc...MS ruled out several times. Has anyone had experience with this problem or any ideas why it would be so high? Does anyone know if this would cause the symptoms I am having?
Avatar m tn 120 where the top end of the normal range was 20. About a year ago I saw a doctor who thought I should start taking supplements. There were a bunch of things but the culprit was a b6 supplement of about 70 per day. This was below the limit of of 100 but I still ended up with this high amount of b6 in my blood and certainly have toxicity symptoms. My doc says it is not the B6 supplement but cannot come up with another reason for the symptoms.
Avatar f tn However, I am curious about your Vitamin D levels. If they are relatively low or in the orthodox recommended range (32ng/mL), I'd personally try to elevate them by about 3 times with adequate supplementation of say 70 000 IU of D3 on a weekly basis for 3 or 4 months, then reduce to 30 000 or 40 000 IU weekly for maintenance. You certainly seem to have all of the necessary precursors to raise D3. Out of curiosity though... which B6 foods did you eat to end up with toxicity levels?
393419 tn?1228450993 It also depends on what your pathology shows too. If you are in the normal range for Vit D then the dose you take is probably enough. If your calcium is down you might want to increase the Vit D. The calcium dose is what is classed as normal. Your vitamins in general seem to be a good mix and should cover you pretty well. You should always split the calcium in morning and night, yes, the timing is important and yours is good. Do you also take any iron supplements?
Avatar f tn I too have low vitamin D (~30) and just got my results for vitamin B's. B6 was high at 146.9nmol/L (range of 20-125 is considered normal). B12 was also low at 0.11nmol/L. For about a year now I have been experiencing mind fog.. its like a feeling of detachment from my surroundings. If you read about depersonalization, that sort of describes it. I know low vitamin D can cause this in people who live in colder climates from lack of sunlight/working indoors.
Avatar n tn B6 was 75 in a range from 2-20 and potassium a little out of range 116 out of range 90-111. i do not take any B6 or potassium supplements. What would cause elevated B6 without supplementation? What would a elevated b6 indcate?
Avatar m tn Evidence from retrospective, cross-sectional, and prospective studies links elevated homocysteine levels with coronary heart disease and stroke [46,49-58]. Vitamin B12, folate, and vitamin B6 are involved in homocysteine metabolism. In the presence of insufficient vitamin B12, homocysteine levels can rise due to inadequate function of methionine synthase [6].
Avatar n tn Hello to all of you once again. I wanted to share a new tidbit with some of you once again if I could. I am not aware of the rules of this community as to whether or not it is ok to post other links, so I would suggest that those that might be interested may want to do a bit of their own research on the topic if you find the time. Over the past couple of years, several nutritional/vitamin companies have made available the co-enzymated form of Vitamin B6 (P-5-P).
Avatar f tn Pernicious Anemia does NOT necessarily "go with" thyroid disease - pernicious anemia is an autoimmune disease, as are some types of thyroid disease. Do you know if your daughter has Hashimoto's Thyroiditis (autoimmune hypothyroidism)? It's not uncommon for a person to have more than one autoimmune disease. With pernicious anemia, the person lacks a substance called "intrinsic factor" in the stomach, which is what allows the B12 to be absorbed.
Avatar m tn Usually metabolism related defects cause deficiency of vitamin B6. Hence, there is a possibility of poor clearance from the body. Discuss this aspect with your doctor. Also check labels of all cereals, canned foods, juices etc that you consume. Some of them may be fortified with vitamin B6. Take care! The medical advice given should not be considered a substitute for medical care provided by a doctor who can examine you.
Avatar f tn I am so thankful to hear from others with this, it is like living a nightmare of pain and now i have medications it is learning to live with them, putting on a brave face at work, hoping i will get better. For me it is only 2 weeks since i stopped having vitamin B6, i didnt even take that much, but i did take it for a long time because i wanted to help my immune system.
Avatar f tn calcium, vitamin B12, iron, magnesium, selenium, zinc, folic acid, vitamin A, vitamin B1, vitamin B2, vitamin B6 and vitamin E. Hypomagnesemia (magnesium deficiency) is the newest warning out from the FDA on PPI's; a magnesium deficiency can start in as little as 3 months although the average time is one year after starting a PPI. Magnesium is the most important co factor for vitamin D absorption.
Avatar n tn Hello Sir, After suffering from severe weakness and leg pains from 1 month, I was diagnosed with Thyroid and Vitamin D3 deficiency. My Physician prescribed me 12.5 mcg thyroid tabs and Vitamin D3 tabs. I used them for more than a month and both of them were in control(I started exposing myself to sun in during morning times). But still I had same symptoms. Then I went for a Vitamin B12 test and diagnosed with 59 points of Vitamin B12.
956292 tn?1334058469 I thought Vitamin B had injections though. I know my Aunts have vitamin B injections frequently. Either way, Vitamin D and Vitamin B deficiency has been linked to neurological issues. Here's an article that was sent to me by my cousin who is an RN and had extensive conversations with doctors who are treated advanced MS with super heavy doses of vitamin D. She swears that it will help.
Avatar f tn 1 ! also i m deficient of vitamin B6, so doctor has advised me iv injections of vit. B6 and oral 60000 IU weekly of vitamin D. today was my first day of vit. D supplement, i was very curious to know more about it so started searching on internet and found this! and it helped me a lot in knowing more about this. should get my ionized calcium level checked? i'm on the prescription of 60,000 IU D3 per week now.. i am 23 years old female and i live in india..
586424 tn?1232180259 I also have been placed on Zantac (150mg 2xdaily) and Vitamin B6. Needless to say this weekend I ended up back at the hospital. Labor and Delivery welcomed the change from super pregnant women to a 9 week pregnant female who couldn't stop vomitting. Ha! I was praying to switch places with any of those screaming women in full blown labor! My HCG is's over 300,000.
Avatar m tn As my Hgb is a bit low, thought I'd try a shot every other week to see if I can get an energy boost and also to facilitate my weekly Procrit injections. Currently my only vitamin intake is Centrum Silver. My Vitamin B12 serum is 293, within normal but on the low side. Normal (200-1100). I'm thinking shots rather than oral supplements because all the PPI's (Nexium) and antacids I'm taking may be inhibiting oral absorption. Also, it's a quicker fix.
1216899 tn?1288573925 Once you get your Vitamin D numbers up it still takes a long time for symptoms to resolve. Out of all my symptoms the off balance feeling is still with me. Go to for a list of many people's updates including my own. Studies show it can take many months at being in levels that are normal before patient's symptoms disappear.
242951 tn?1385489060 Low B-12 levels can cause rapid heartbeats, but I've never heard of rapid heartbeats when supplementing. I've also never heard of B6 being able to prevent rapid heart rate. Vitamin B6 often causes very intense dreams/nightmares. I can't take it, for that reason. When you get your results back, if you'll post them here, we can make a better assessment.
Avatar f tn According to the National Kidney Foundation, normal results range from 90 - 120 mL/min/1.73 m2. Older people will have lower normal GFR levels, because GFR decreases with age. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
Avatar m tn 86.3 ng/mL (range = 2.1– 21.7). Could there be a correlation between the MRI results, symptoms and out of sync B6 levels? Do folks on this thread general think they are experiencing metabolic issue with b6? I was only taking 12 mg a day (have stopped now.) If so, are there any known ways to address this? I can't even seem to find a toxic b6 blood level. Because of this uncertainty in my diagnosis, I have not been able to receive any treatment.
Avatar n tn Vitamin B6 Level was 384 (normal range 20 - 125) Vitamin B12 Level was 1,850 (normal range 180 - 914) The doctors had no explanation for the extremely high levels. I rarely eat meats and I don't take B supplements. So I was wondering, Is my "ALS" really a B problem? Has this happened to anyone else?
Avatar m tn I was taking Neurobion (Merck )contain Vitamin -B1 100MG, Vitamin B6- 200MG ,Vitamin B12-200MCG I took one tablet each day for nearly 40 days. Without knowing these tablets are poisoning me each single day. I experienced symptoms on 25th day but I was thinking these are not due to vitamin supplement. I consulted neurology doctor in Singapore raffles hospital he has advised me to do following blood test. 1. Calcium 2. Magnesieum 3. CK/CPK All above test are normal.
Avatar m tn I am taking tayko 60k per week how many months it will take to come to normal range. Please any one reply to chethan.***@****....
Avatar m tn Vitamin B6 is used in several pathways in the creation of adrenal hormones and a nutrient that many patients are deficient in. Taking higher doses of B6 during the acute phase of treatment may be necessary for short periods of time. DHEA: DHEA is the precursors to testosterone and other estrogen metabolites. With low cortisol and low adrenal hormone production, supplementing with hormone precursors may be of benefit. Start with a low dose every 2-3 days and increase to daily as tolerated.
Avatar f tn Brand new to site and new to detailed Thyroid info. labs out of range/ratio. Very confused. Help please! History: diagnosed LADA (T1 diabetes) 3 years ago. On insulin and metformin.
