Amino Acids

This is the test I am currently advocating especially given my interesting results with Histidine. The only question is whether to get the blood amino acid test:

"The Amino Acid 40 tests measures 40 amino acids, this includes all of the essential plus key non-essential amino acids. Fasting levels of amino acids represent homeostatic balance between supply and utilization of these critical building blocks."

Or the urine amino acids test:

"The Urine Amino Acids analysis measures both essential and non-essential amino acids, as well as various intermediary metabolites, which provide a useful insight into an array of biochemical processes. A large number of metabolic disorders involve amino acids due to their complex biochemistry, which involves dozens of enzyme systems. This analysis aids in the diagnosis of dietary protein adequacy and balance, gastrointestinal dysfunctions, forms of protein intolerance, functional vitamin and mineral deficiencies (particularly folic acid, vitamin B12, B6, zinc and magnesium), renal and hepatic dysfunction, psychiatric abnormalities, susceptibility to inflammatory response and oxidative stress, reduced detoxification capacity, susceptibility to occlusive arterial disease and many inherent disorders in amino acid metabolism."


Reverse T3

Here is an interesting test:

T4 from the thyroid gland is peripherally converted in liver and kidney cells into T3 and reverse T3 (rT3). T3 is the active hormone and is five times as potent as T4, but rT3 is almost biologically inactive.

Reverse T3 is primarily produced from monodeiodiation of thyroxin in the peripheral tissue rather than by direct secretion by the thyroid gland. Physical, mental and environmental stresses can inhibit the deiodinating enzyme, causing less T4 to be converted to T3, thus decreasing the amount of active thyroid hormone available to the cells. More T4 is then shunted towards rT3 causing an elevation in rT3. Measuring rT3 levels is useful when ‘sick euthyroid’ conditions are suspected.


Hair tests (for minerals)

A DDI hair analysis can be ordered from here in the UK. It is £65:

In the US the website is: (I believe you need a doctors order if you are ordering in the US).
