    I had the Metametrix one done a few years since and would really appreciate some imput on the results of the citric acid cycle. The naturopath who ordered the test disappeared without telling me what it meant.

    Citrate >2000 H (56-987)
    Cis-Aconitate H 92 (18-78)
    Isocitrate 172 H (39-143)
    a-Keto 30.4 H (<35.0)
    Succinate 8.6 (<20.9)
    Fumarate 0.35 (<1.35)
    Malate 3.0 H (<3.1)
    Hydroxymethylgluterate 6.0 H(<5.1)

    Sulphate is low and urine smells of ammonia. Thanks.
