Can you provide blood lab referance range. Certainly not medical advice, but could be injection dose not staying in the system. You may need higher dose or more frequent injections. Example opposed to 1000cc twice a month, try 250cc 8 times per month. Good luck.

Clinically significant B12 deficiency
may occur with B12 levels in the normal
range, particularly in elderly patients.

Very true, labs do not always reveal abnormalities. What type of symptoms are you having ?

Here's my B12 level from last week, 562 (200-914)

I googled bc govt health guideline b12
and found what looks like B12 shots only work a bit.
whereas B12 pills, even if metformin is inhibiting them, will still get your B12 readings higher.
