A healthy result should fall into the range 63 - 356 micromol/g creatinine.

Alanine is a non-essential amino acid and helps the body convert the simple sugar glucose into energy and eliminate excess toxins from the liver.

Of the 20 amino acids in the proteins of your body, we can make alanine, arginine, asparagine, aspartate, cysteine, glutamate, glutamine, glycine, proline, serine and tyrosine but not histidine, isoleucine, leucine, lysine, methionine, phenylalanine, threonine, tryptophan or valine.

What does it mean if your Alanine (Urine) result is too low?

- Low Alanine levels may point to hypoglycemic conditions because of its role in gluconeogenesis. Supplement with alanine and the branched chain amino acids leucine, isoleucine and valine.

- Alanine is an abundant amino acid that is typically low with poor dietary habits or protein malnutrition. Gross protein malnutrition is rarely the result of maldigestion but rather the result of insufficient dietary protein/calories. Alanine is a primary source of glucose (gluconeogenesis) with caloric insufficiency (eg. anorexia, bulimia). Check for low urinary levels of essential amino acids, ammonia, urea and creatinine and hypoglycemia.

What does it mean if your Alanine (Urine) result is too high?

High Alanine levels may possibly point to inadequate cellular energy substrates. Check for hypoglycemia or for exercise prior to blood draw. Chronic use of alanine for energy can lead to muscle wasting. Supplement the branched-chain amino acids.
