I was wondering if anyone could help me go over a little of my report from the NutrEval test? My doc is extremely busy, and I still have a couple weeks before my apt. Here's a portion: Supplementation for High Need: Cobalamin - B12 - Dose = 1,000 mcg Zinc - Dose = 30 mg Magnesium - Dose = 800 mg Riboflavin - B2 - Dose = 50 mg Functional Imbalances: Mitochondrial Dysfunction = Red zone Need for methylation = Red zone Toxic exposure = high end of Yellow zone Malabsorption and Dysbiosis Markers Indoleacetic acid (AA) = 3.6 (ref range <=4.2) Phenylacetic Acid (PAA) = .45 (ref range <= 0.120) Bacterial Dysbiosis Markers 3-Hydroxyphenylacetic Acid = 10.9 (ref range <=8.1) Benzoic Acid = 0.69 (ref range <=0.05) Hippuric acid = 308 (ref range <=603) Yeast / Fungal Dysbiosis Markers Arabinose = 111 (ref range <=96) Citramalic Acid = 3.6 (ref range <=5.8) Cellular Energy & Mitochondrial Metabolites Lactic Acid = 31.1 (ref range 1.9 - 19.8) β-OH-Butyric Acid (BHBA) = 2.5 (ref range <=2.8) Energy Metabolism Citric Acid = 979 (ref range 40 - 520) α-Ketoglutaric Acid (AKG) = 49 (ref range 4 - 52) .... not sure why, but this one is in Yellow zone Succinic Acid = 11.1 (ref range 0.4 - 4.6) Malic Acid = 4.2 (ref range <=3.0) Fatty Acid Metabolism Adipic Acid = 1.8 (ref range <=2.8) Suberic Acid = 1.3 (ref range <=2.1) Creatinine Concentration Creatinine* = 7.1 (ref range 1-19.5 mmol/L7) Neurotransmitter Metabolytes: all within Green zone Vitamin Markers α-Ketoadipic Acid = 1.3 (ref range <=1.7) α-Ketoisovaleric Acid = .43 (ref range <=.97) α-Ketoisocaproic Acid = .54 (ref range <=.89) α-Keto-β-Methylvaleric Aci = 1.9 (ref range <=2.1) Formiminoglutamic Acid (FIGlu) = 0.8 (ref range <=1.5) Glutaric Acid = 0.93 (ref range <=0.51) Isovalerylglycine = 1.8 (ref range <=3..7) Methylmalonic Acid = 3.0 (ref range <=1.9) 3-Hydroxyisovaleric Acid = 23 (ref range <=29) Toxin & Detoxification Markers α-Ketophenylacetic Acid (from Styrene) = 0.22 (ref range <=.46) α-Hydroxyisobutyric Acid (from MTBE) = 7.9 (ref range <=6.7) Orotic Acid = 1.22 (ref range 0.33 - 1.01) Pyroglutamic Acid = 30 (ref range 16-34) Tyrosine Metabolism 2-Hydroxyphenylacetic Acid = 0.85 (ref range <=.76) Amino Acids (Urine FMV) Nutritionally Essential Amino Acids Isoleucine = 59 (ref range 24 - 58) Phenylalanine = 81 (ref range 26-71) Nonessential Protein Amino Acids Aspartic Acid = 27 (ref range 35-86) Glutamic Acid = 22 (ref range 5-21) Tyrosine = 134 (ref range 33-124) Intermediary Metabolites Urea Cycle Markers Ammonia = 11.0 (ref range 14.0-49.0 mmol/g creatinine) Glycine/Serine Metabolites Phosphoethanolamine = 13 (ref range 18-70) Elemental Markers (RBCs) ....

QUESTIONS: 1) Is Pyruvate on here? the comments mention checking to see if it's elevated or not 2) I'm not sure why this note is in there .... I don't live anywhere near a gas station, nor have I ever roked at one: Alpha hydroxyisobutyric acid (2-HIBA): This compound is a major urinary metabolite of the gasoline additive MTBE (methyl-tert-butyl ether). It is a potential toxicant for refinery workers, gasoline handlers and in water supplies where underground tanks have leaked into the groundwater aquifers. The elimination half-life of 2-HIBA varies from 7-18 hours at low levels of exposure. Reputed health effects of MTBE exposure include nephropathy, neoplasms and potential for genetic damage. MTBE has been controversially designated as "non-carcinogenic" by the National Toxicology Program.
