The use of pyruvic acid and calcium pyruvate may cause side effects, such as gastrointestinal distress, kidney stress, increased cholesterol, and hypercalcemia. ...Read more

Low pyruvic acid mg/dl, low pyruvic acid blood and low lactate plasma? What does this mean? Any one have any clue?
Probably not: It is not an antibiotic. Is used for treatment of acne to help skin peel & believe is being studied for its use intreatment of cancer. But do not know of any reports in its' use for utis. We know that antibiotics almost always work so why consider something like pyruvic acid? ...Read more

You've pushed me---: I've been avoiding this question (as my colleagues have as well). I never was a fan of biochem in college or medical school. But I still have&refer to my Lubert Stryer from time to time...not the most recent edition you understand but mine is SPECIAL. Anyways, I'm still going through the chapter on amino metabolism which partially explains this so stay tuned. I promise to answer this shortly! ...Read more
Enzymes: Pyruvate dehydrogenase complex is a complex of three enzymes in the mitichondria that change the Amino Acid pyruvate into the molecule acetyl-coa by a process called pyruvate decarboxylation. Acetyl-coa is used in the citric acid cycle to make energy for cells the complex links the metabolic pathway that breaks down glucose (elemental sugar) to the citric acid cycle. ...Read more
Odd question!: Hi. Pyruvate dehydrogenase is a vital step in intermediary metabolism! Do you mean could you die if one of the genes in the pyruvate dehydrogenase complex produced a non-functional enzyme? Don't know about heterozygotes; they might be OK. Homozygous mutant would be an embryonic lethal, I am sure. I'm really curious what led you to ask that bizarre question! ...Read more
