Amino Acid Profile results

Recommended Posts

Just got my son's "amino acid profile" results back. Everything was normal except his Tryptophan was high.


Here are some of the more interesting results:


Glutamic acid, P1------------33.9 (reference range 22-190)

Glutamine, P1----------------603.6 (reference range 320-700)

Tryptophan, P1---------------114.5 (reference range 15-109) HIGH

Histidine, P1---------------------73.1 (reference range 46-125)

3-methyl-histidine, P1---------3.8 (reference range 0-10)

1-methyl-histidine, P1---------3.3 (reference range 0-21)


Does anyone know if these numbers are telling me anything about my son's glutamate or histamine levels? And tryptophan--isn't it normally low in someone with OCD? I would appreciate anyone's comments.


MomWithOCDSON, isn't glutamic acid basically glutamate? So, therefore, my son's glutamate is low normal and he does not have a problem with glutamate? Would that explain why the augmentin xr didn't help him since it is a glutatmate modulator (lowers glutamate)?
