The Real ME: A Stock Photography Resource for the Media
We’ve all seen them in the news stories about ME/CFS: the guy in a suit at the office, yawning; the beautiful woman sitting at her desk with her immaculate make-up and elegantly coiffed hair, hand to her head and looking slightly pained.

    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.
