    I'm no expert, so I'm happy to be corrected, but as far as I'm aware that level of testing is not currently commercially available.

    Actually just found
    http://www.meaction.net/2016/06/04/ron-davis-errors-metabolism/

    ETA: @Ben Howell @Janet Dafoe (Rose49) can you correct anything that I might have wrong here? Thanks :)

    Unless anything has recently changed, this is all correct.

    Metabolon doesn't offer commercial testing, however Laurel Crosby at Stanford Genome Technology Centre (SGTC) is working on a version that would be commercial per se.

    One issue is even if you did have the test, the data is very complex because of the amount of metabolites tested. Its not interpretable like the Genova(?) TCA urine test you can have. Laurel is working on this issue too, making it easier to interpret however her main focus is the daily work at SGTC in solving the disease so the commercial test is on the backburner.

    This is the last I heard, anyhows. As soon as things change, and you can get the test, I will be starting a thread :)
