    I just got my amino test results back. My glycine is 535 and the range is 122-322. I also have elevated Beta Amino Isobutyric Acid (4 and should be less than 3), Phenylalanine (90 and should be <74), and Ornithine (110 should be <83). My GP ran the tests because I asked her to, but she doesn't know how to interpret them so I ran the results by the endocrinologist I've seen and he said HE didn't know how to interpret them and I should ask the doctor who ran the tests. Maybe I hurt his feelings? Anyway, does anyone know the proper doctor for interpreting amino acid results?

    Thanks!

    You have to see a ND (natural doctor) for that, a conventional doctor will have no clue on how to interpret your results.

    I like the ones who practice "functional medicine".

    There is a Dr. Dennis Gersten who I've had phone consultations with regarding my AA results. He created an amino acid web site (www.aminoacidpower.com). Don't know if he is still in practice. He had CFS and was helped greatly form AA therapy.

    I just looked back at my AA results and there is a commentary that addresses results out of range.........I guess there wasn't one with your results?

    Did a quick search.........high ornithine can be indicative of creatine deficiency.
