How do you treat yourselves if you have a bad report on levels?

Usually you only get this test when you are under the care of an ND, so I would follow their advice.

Elevated levels may just indicate you eat a high protein diet.

But it may also mean your are not digesting proteins well.

This can be caused by a variety of factors:

low stomach acid
malabsorptive syndromes (sprue, etc.)
stomach cancer
parasitic infections
fungal infections
lack of digestive enzymes
liver problems
Celiac disease
Gastric ulcer
intestinal obstruction
Jejunal diverticulosis
Hartnup's disease
Pancreatic insufficiency
Diminished peristalsis

How to treat self depend on what you think the condition is that is causing elevated levels, but consider:

Reduce consumption polyamines.

Try to shift balance in intestinal flora.

This may require consumption of herbs to kill off undesirable microorganisms.

Consumption of probiotics to repopulate the correct flora in the intestines.

I am certain a few on that list are part of my issues. What is the distinct thing? Dunno but with constipation slowly fading and how poorly digested my food happens to be... I got weird issues.

I was certainly hoping there would be a more interesting outtake on it. It seems all you can do is just follow the recommendations just how they happen to be.

I have a pretty direct relationship with things in my lower intestine and affects on my mental and physical status.

I used to not digest anything.  My stool was literally just chewed up, still totally identifiable food (sorry for the imagery).  For me it was due to lack of stomach acid, and supplementing with HCl has greatly helped.

what was the advise you got?  I am surprised that people still do the test? some have forgotten how to.. in of it self it is not important, but combined with digestion issues it is a concern.  

D of S.. what are you eating and drinking? You are here long enough that some things should be better.. A's do have more issues then others, but unless you are taking all sort of sups and the like and are not eating Beneficials most of the days then, there is need for more attention. Undigested foods are not acceptable, as you can see it shows up in urine.

First off : what exactly are you eating? and drinking? you have changed many things but are you keeping a food list .. could you post it for one week?  some where there is something not so good for you, like one single item in a supplement or a wrong protein drink type food?  I would start there again and go forward.  

WHAT where you told to do?

I feel for you, bad digestion and bladder issues are no fun.

Is peppermint tea on your food list?  I might start to drink it, over all other things.. it is so sweet that it requires no sugar which might be a big cause of issues.  

I suppose you where tested for diabetes?  

What else where you tested for?... how did this test come about.. ? what where you told about it?

I am sorry for all the questions but again by answering them to you, and maybe us here, there ought to be answers that stand out.

I eat primarily beneficials. I eat some neutrals, and once a week I might eat a few black dots maybe an avoid.

The last few days mostly lentils, pinto beans, onion, carrot, celery, and tofu. I took HCL and enzymes for a bit but not sure they did much at that time. Doing some tougher exercise (well, work) helped out recently. So did my insurance paid massage.

It is discouraging when eating good things only helps some because you are not digesting it well. I have bromelain on the way (got my return check from student loans).

I tried some protein powder (soy) with enzymes but found out my gas would smell like it so obviously I was not digesting it well.

Wheat seems to keep my digestion a bizarre thing.

Have you tried not eating wheat or gluten?  It is a more common problem than many people realize.

Thanks for the additional info.. I just wish I had your type down pat.. but other then eating the hip of your backside.. I am of little help..

but I looked at the list you gave.. student money might be the reason,  but are the fodds listed not a little lopsided.. like no greens? no dandilions for bitter in juice?? just asking have no idea what I am saying.. some nuts in place of all the beans.. ?/ again just asking.. maybe others can chime in here.. ??)

all your foods are OFF limit to me..  :-/  moo..

I eat peanuts, almonds, and walnuts fairly often.

Greens not as much as maybe I should, but I do eat an organic salad at a cafe I like, and sometimes at the health food store where I can make my own. I am bigger into broccoli when home.

I stay of wheat most of the time. For awhile it had no affect on me though. Sometimes I break down and get my favorite thing of all food though. I have been a bit depressed at times so then I am more prone to just eat what is about especially when I have less money.
