There might be some sort of disease process going on resulting in the folic acid being low however much you consume. There's a sort of anemia caused by the life of the red blood cells being much shorter than usual so the body has to constantly draw on it supplies of folic acid to make new ones. There are also malabsorption problems of various sorts.
This might be a factor towards getting a diagnosis so it should be mentioned on your list of chronic health problems.
