    This isn't mine, it was pulled from a study of people who have a genetic condition called Thalassemia Major. People here have a lot more knowledge about this stuff so I thought I'd ask about what stands out and what might be worth looking into further.


    My thoughts:
    • High glutamate, low cystine: Low cysteine? Low glutathione? Might benefit from NAC.
    • Low tyrosine: Probably related to low phenylalanine. Might benefit from supplementation. As phenylalanine or tyrosine?
    • Low isoleucine: Don't know, need to research more.
    • Low taurine: High oxidative stress. Supplementation might help.
    • Low glutamine: I know it's common with high glutamate, but I don’t know what it means. Would glutamine supplementation be a good idea?
    • High proline: Probably deficient in a cofactor, need to look into it more.
    • High serine: Probably deficient in a cofactor. Glycine? Folate?
    There's also a urine profile here:
