Abnormal Catecholamines


Senior Member
Northern California
Hi Everone,
I had a 24 urine test for catecholamines, and all results were either low normal or out of range low (dopamine, creatine). In my blood, creatine and dopamine are high. Does anyone have any ideas about these results? on this forum I read that low urinary Catecholamines could be connected to BH4, which Dr. Davis is apparently looking into.
health wise I’ve been going through a terrible sleep crisis, I’m quite ”run down”, my face feels flushed and I have dry mouth. My ME/CFS is severe, though not at its worst.
Always a new way to suffer with this cursed disease.
thanks for any ideas you might have.
