ME/CFS: A disease at war with itself
We can all agree that ME/CFS is a nasty disease, particularly in its severe form, but there are abundant nasty diseases in the world. What is unique and particularly confounding about our disease is that so much controversy surrounds it, and not only surrounds it, but invades it too.

Does anyone have test results like these and/or do they tell you anything?

    Does anyone have anything that looks like this?

    Or know what it may indicate?

    Would a persons level of these things always be fluctuating anyway and this sort of thing could be found in people all the time and not mean much?

    Plasma amino acid test showed

    Low arginine, histadine, isoleucine, ornithine, serine, tryptophane, phenylalanine and taurine.

    Urine organic acids test showed.

    Low citric acid, hva and 5hiaa

    High cis-aconitic acid, fumeric acid, a-ketoisovaleric acid, a-ketoisocaproic acid and a-keto-b-methylvaleric acid.

    If this means anything to anyone. Thanks

    I wish I could get a doctor to run those test for me, but the doctors I have seen lately have been real a$$holes about running test.

    It has taken me years of fighting to get tests done and there are lots of others I would love to get but haven't been able to get them to do them.

    The thing is but, almost all the tests I get that show out of range results like these, they don't offer any treatment for.

    This is why I am asking for help here. Maybe these results don't mean much and are just normal fluctuations.

    @knackers323 would this information from Genova Diagnostics be helpful to figure out what the amino acid test results might represent?

    And these links referencing urinary organic acid tests?

    This thread might also be helpful to interpret your test results.

    I had these results. And a few more aminos low than yours. But in urine 24h.
    For me it means leaky gut, simply put, and a diseased body. You either don´t absorb well, or your body uses up these too rapidly/cannot hold them, or both.

    Taurine was my lowest.

    95% of allopaths don´t know how to treat those abnormalities, or what they mean. A large percentage of alternative "healers" say they know but they don´t either. Yes they have these tests and they know what aminoacids are but there ends their wisdom.

    Maybe your gut is not in shape to synthesize some of these amino acids (?).
    E.coli can help synthesize tryptophan, phenylalanine, tyrosine and ornithine. If E. coli levels are too low this could be a problem.

    Arginine is synthesized in the gut (with some help from the kidneys). I would supplement with it for a while, it may help conserve some precious ATP and it should help protect your endothelial cells (blood vessels).
    Ornithine is produced from arginine but you could supplement it as well. It could, theoretically, help with fatigue.

    Normally, one would be obtaining most of these amino acids through protein diet, but this illness puts us in the abnormal category.
