Can Glutamic Acid Decarboxylase Antibody Be Reduced In The Body
I have a glutamic acid decarboxylase antibody level of 3.4 u/ml. Is this anything to worry about? Labcorp says the result is "high".
Why ordered?: This is supposed to be a marker for a kid who's likely to get juvenile onset diabetes. Are you perhaps a newly-diagnosed diabetic? There's talk that elevated antibodies sort-of predicts that diabetes in an adult will behave more like type i diabetes (require insulin) than type ii, but i'm not aware of a consensus on whether there is a treatment guideline. Read up & ask for a clear answer. ...Read more
What things, in the body, regulate glutamic acid? Glutamic acid decarboxylase? Glutamate receptors (nmda, ampa...Etc.)? What else is involved?
It's complicated...: There are some very exciting discoveries on the metabolism of glutamate... There are multiple pathways impacting on things such as gaba neurotransmitter, nitrogen clearance from the liver portal, etc... These pathways play vital roles in survival! please read this.... And email me your questions if you'd like! http://voh.Chem.Ucla.Edu/vohtar/spring04/classes/153ch/pdf/kelly%20and%20stanley.Pdf. ...Read more
In my recent blood test my glucose was 204. C-peptide was 0.37 and glutamic acid decarboxylase was >30.0.
Also my hemoglobin A1c was 10.1?
Type I diabetes.: With a hemoglobin A1C so high and I assume a high fasting glucose, unfortunately, it appears that you are diabetic. A high glutamic decarboxylase can mean anti-islet cell of the pancreas antibodies, but can also be elevated in other autoimmune conditions. A lower C-peptide and positive antibodies indicate Type I diabetes. If you are not on insulin yet, please seek help ASAP in the ER. ...Read more
L-glutamic acid gives me severe dysesthesias. D-glutamic acid is worse. Could I have glutamate metabolism disorder or glutamate receptor antibodies?
Possibly but...: Good question without an easy answer. Glutamate is an "excitotoxin" that is not healthy for anyone but some people are more sensitive to it than others. There are a variety of uncommon glutamate metabolism disorders but you do not need to have one of these to be adversely affected by glutamate. Dysesthesias are not a known symptom of antibodies to glutamate receptors. See my comments:. ...Read more
Not at all: Quite the reverse, as many recommended meds are designed to inhibit glutamate responses. Regardless, the sole approved drug, Riluzole merely delays intubation, and is otherwise disappointing. Do not look for alternative therapies, they do not exist here in this very discouraging disorder. ...Read more
If you have a glutamate metabolism disorder...& then you eat a food high in glutamic acid (meat, gluten, casein..Etc), what happens to you? Symptoms?
A lot: Glutamate overall is an excitatory protein in the body. It stimulates the perception of taste and appetite. It also acts on the pancreas and liver. Our bodies need some but too much can cause a lot of different problems such as weight gain, diabetes, and neurotoxicity. In addition to avoiding high glutamate foods it is useful to consume extra carnitine (high in red meat) to counter the glutamate. ...Read more
Dear doctors,I'm a 18 years old and my bro 15 years old, is we safe to serve with whey protein contains BCAAs and glutamic acid?
Cystine is depleted, while glycine and glutamic acid are highly elevated. Does that mean cysteine and subsequent glutathione deficiency? Any ideas? Ty

What would cause an intolerance to glutamic acid? Gad autoantibodies? Gad deficiency? Glutamate receptor autoantibodies(anti-nmda, anti-ampa)?
None of the above.: Msg - ubiquitous Amino Acid and major excitatory neurotransmitter in brain. Studied extensively. Does not cause allergy or intolerance except at high dose and only then in susceptible persons when given in large doses without food. See fda, j.

Glutamic acid high, myoglobin low, pain in legs, swollen lymphs, ck spiked over 6500 then norm. Headaches and passed out and lots more. What is this?
Baclofen side effect: High levels of glutamic acid, specially the glutamic acid dedecarboxylase may be associated with auto immumne disease and type one diabeties.Myoglobinis a muscle protein found in all muscle tissues including the heart, it helps to carry oxygen to the muscle.High levels of CPK indicates some muscle damage wich is in contradiction with low myoglobine.Baclofen may produce the symptoms you are complning. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Taking cyclosporine and cellcept (mycophenolate mofetil) due to liver transplant, can I take SUKROL ( glutamic acid ), my memory and concentration been decreased lately. ?
Don't take it.: Sukrol is an OTC supplement containing multiple ingredients, including glutamic acid, lecithin, and thiamine. It is impossible to predict whether any of these could have an interaction with your cyclosporine or CellCept (mycophenolate mofetil). Given the potentially dire consequences of an interaction, it is not worth it to take your chances with an unproven supplement. Good luck. ...Read more
Insulin in future?: Glutamic acid decarboxylase antibodies (gada) is the most important factor for prediction of Insulin therapy within 3 years in young adult diabetic patients not classified as type 1 diabetes on clinical grounds. Is is one of several pancreatic antibodies, but the best predictor of type one disease. ...Read more
I get savage irrational rage & full-body dysesthesia when eating food high in aspartic, glutamic, & arachidonic acid. Why? Nmda receptor dysfunction?
My daughter (7 yrs) blood test of antiglutamic acid decarboxylase (gad) is 54.000 iu/ml, what does it mean? Is there a way to stop its function?
Biochemistry: Gad is an enzyme that your body needs to make the neurotransmitter gaba. If this was drown in a child, i suspect that they are considering a spinocerebellar ataxia syndrome (sca) or hyperekplexia. These are complicated and rare disorders. Your child may need to a see a child neurologist with some expertise in neuromuscular disorders if anything unusual is being considered. ...Read more
What are known bacterial species overproducing histidine decarboxylase or if more appropriate for asking - histamine, in a human body? Thank you.
