Hi, I'm working on some of the deficiencies I had (b12, b6, vit a, selenium, zinc, magnesium, potassium), I have successfully got rid of all of them except vit A, I also had B1 tested and that is low as well. My Vit D, calcium and iodine levels were quite high. I have been taking 6000IU of vit A in form of palminate in emulsified drops. I also take fermented cod liver oil butter oil blend daily (teaspoon a day) and eat organ meats on daily basis. I should see my vit A go up, but instead in the 4 months on clean autoimmune protocol paleo diet it went down from 51 to 45 (43-111). Any advice?

You're at normal levels, albeit low-normal, now. If you were deficient for a long while, you have no vitamin A stored; none in adipose, none in your liver. Until you fill the stores, you're likely not going to see anything but low-normal amounts of circulation.
