There are 2 different urine strips on Amazon. Which one should I buy?
I bought the sulfate ones.
There was a recent thread about this in the methylation forums. I haven't read through it so I don't know the answer.
I bought sulfate strips because I was under the impression that the sulfur or sulfites in food, supplement, or additive were all converted into sulfate by SOUX. Now, one of the issues I am running across is what time of the day to use the strips. My morning urine sulfate is always around 800 and my afternoon evening is around 200-400. Not sure if the morning urine is all that counts? Sorry for rambling, SULFATE strips are the ones that I bought for around $35 on amazon.
According dbkita, the amount of protein and methylation can increase sulfates
but isn't it sulfur that causes the amonia build up? so when would one use sulfer strips versus using sulfate strips?
If one has a CBS issue would this dictate which one. I do not know my SOUX, wish someone could figure out which SNPs are related to the SOUX Yasko tests for methylation issues.
Sulfur and ammonia are two different things, but they both use the same pathway. So if ammonia is high, then sulfate will have difficulty being processed, and vice versa. That's why the CBS protocol includes supps and diet for lowering both ammonia and sulfate.
You mentioned earlier that you were able to tolerate a higher methylation dose after doing the CBS protocol. So does that mean that someone with high ammonia will also have a harder time tolerating methylation doses?
It's possible, as the high ammonia will make sulfates hard to process, because the pathway is already clogged up with ammonia.
