    I have also been wondering about triheptanoin. One of the things it's given for is pyruvate decarboxylate deficiency. However, the deficiency in ME/CFS is a pyruvate dehydrogenase deficiency. I actually mixed these two up and got overly excited thinking that triheptanoin would be a cure. However, if it's safe, i'll probably try it anyway, as I plan on trying anything that can affect the kreb's cycle and is shown to be reasonably safe. e.g. no injecting atp lol ...

    oh wait... but pyruvate decarboyxlase could be relevant, since it is involved in converting pyruvate to oxoloacetic acid. better put my thinking cap on.

    I looked at triheptanoin, but unfortunately it's difficult to get hold of: see this post.

    the person who recommended this to me worked for the glut 1 foundation at some point. may be able to get me some triheptanoin. I would want to use food grade i guess, it is used in cosmetics
