New era for ME/CFS research as top cytokine study attracts media headlines
The immune systems of patients who have recently developed ME/CFS look markedly different from those who have been ill for much longer, according to a major new study from Drs. Ian Lipkin and Mady Hornig at Columbia University. This shift in immune function hadn’t been seen before.

    Has anyone had this test?
    Is it usefull?
    Did it show up anything as being high or low and/or indicate an ammonia clearance problem?

    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.
