Hi Dr. McCandless,

My son consistently come back with OATs showing elevate hippuric. He's been as high as 4,300, the lowest has been 1111 (ref range 10-400). The interpretation shows that hippuric is a conjugate of glycine and benzoic acid, and is probably caused by dysbiosis. I do give my son 1000 mg glycine daily. Could the glycine be a cause of this high reading? I really don't want to stop giving it!

Thanks so much,

#2 dr_mccandless

Deb: This is not too high a dose of glycine for most kids; I would suspect you have some pathogens, probably bacteria, causing this high level of hippuric. Jaquelyn
