So not many lymies are low in carnitine? Or does it mean I don't have bacterial infections as well?
I am actually taking Phosphatidylcholine. Maybe I should see what my choline levels are.
I have candida and strep has shown up on my ondamed tests.
Last time I had my triglycerides checked they were fine. Great in fact. Tho that was in 2012.
A few things I found:
"Along with folate and B12 deficiency, inadequate consumption of choline can lead to high homocysteine".
*I am heterozygous for mthfr and recently my homocystene was higher than before.
"Phospholipid supplementation has also been shown to help with mitochondrial dysfunction in patients with diseases such as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, chronic Lyme Disease, Fibromyalgia, and Gulf War Illness."
*And I am taking Phosphatidylcholine, 1000 mg.
Also..."The most common symptoms of choline deficiency are fatty liver and/or hemorrhagic kidney necrosis.
For those who are genotyped by 23andMe, there is a SNP (rs7946) related to NAFLD you can look at in the PEMT gene called PEMT G523A (V175M). Caucasians with nonalcoholic fatty liver are more likely to carry the rs7946 (T), with the effect being most pronounced for rs7946(T;T) genotypes. [PMID 16051693]"
*And my genetic tests say I am TT for that snp.
