Glutamine acid

Hi
I am diagnosed with schizophrenia. I did a lab test on my amino acids. It showed increased levels of glutamine acid and aspartic acid. Since these cross the blood brain barrier and are very active neurotransmitters, could this course my psychosis?
Is there anything I can do to decrease these levels?
I am not on protein supplements

Re: Glutamine acid

Well I say if you can ask the doc how to make your amino acid levels back to normal and if you stay on a normal level then you can make a jugement if that is the cause of your phycosis. If it is the cause you would see improvements, if not only you can feel the difference.

Re: Glutamine acid

Glutamates are found in several food ingredients such as boullion cubes (monosodium glutamate). Anything that has "hydrolyzed soy protein" in it will have glutamates. There are others but I can't remember them all. I have a response to glutamates, they give me restless legs and some strange sensations in my head. I try and stay away from them.
