Senior Member

Would appreciate any comments, just not ones about how metametrix is a sucky test. Thanks! FYI, Older blood work that showed continuous low ferritin (but high iron--yay for contradictions!)

Low CoQ10

Low Branch Chain Amino Acids (isoleucine, leucine, valine)

Low D (weird; I spent all summer in the hot Texas sun)

Low E & A

Low-ish Magnesium

High Aluminum, some Arsenic

low omega 3 (OK 6 & 9)

high indican & hippurate bacteria
