Glutamine 200 ref range 280-600 umol/L
Glutamic acid 455 ref range 50-390 umol/L
these results are in plasma.
what might this mean is going on metabolically?
How might I correct this? Thanks
Honestly, I think low plasma GLN is the most important biomarker. The brain depends on high GLN in the blood to maintain GLU and GABA in the CNS. Nitrogen balance, pH balance, protein synthesis, immune system function, neuroplasticity, wound healing, gut barrier function, DNA/RNA replication, etc... all depend on adequate endogenous GLU synthesis. After 13 years of hell, I just discovered my deficiency.
If you've had a long history of GERD/gastritis/LPR, etc... your gut's demand for Glutamine may have created a long-term deficit everywhere else. It's just a theory, but I think it's a good one.
