Trying to get a doctor to look at this - but was curious if anyone can make sense of my amino acid tests.

From what I understand the urine amino acids can be low due to gut issues, but also they maybe being fed into the krebs cycle? I just don't understand if my amino acids are low or not, plasma shows many of them are high, and I've read the body will do it's best to conserve the amino acids in the blood, but why are they so high..

There is a group on Facebook called Understanding Mitochondrial Nutrients. If you post them there, I bet someone will offer to look.

I don’t know enough to comment myself. :(
