So my b12 levels are high again. Anything I should read into that? I don't supplement and I eat a vegan diet so usually you are meant to be deficient.

How high?  Too high?
Odd being Vegan and not taking B12
Usually theyíll do more tests if it was at toxic levels...

B12 is usually a meat vitamin ... but maybe fortified in some cereals

169 is not high. Mine was ~1200 while I was on chemo, and I wasn't taking supplements, although I do eat fortified wheat products.

My B12 is high too - out of the range high but not by much. I think it's high because I'm not absorbing it and I'm not eliminating it. Kidney issues maybe?

Mine was high due to taking too many supplements and doctor said not to worry about it. I just quit the supplements to make sure though.

Thatís a methylation problem, you have plenty of serum  b12 but itís having a problem converting/methylating to actually get into your cells.  Find a functional Dr to help you decide what to do
