Whereas low cobalamin levels have been studied intensively, systematic information about high levels, especially in the clinical setting, is scarce. Therefore, a prospective comparison was done of 60 patients with high cobalamin levels and 75 with normal levels obtained by a hospital laboratory over a 2.5 month period. Associations with clinical disorders and laboratory test results were examined. Transcobalamin (TC) I and II were measured, especially the holoproteins (TC carrying circulating… CONTINUE READING
