A healthy result should fall into the range 10 - 200 mmol/mol creatinine.
Ascorbic Acid is a natural water-soluble vitamin (Vitamin C). Ascorbic acid is a potent reducing and antioxidant agent that functions in fighting bacterial infections, in detoxifying reactions, and in the formation of collagen in fibrous tissue, teeth, bones, connective tissue, skin, and capillaries.
Found in citrus and other fruits, and in vegetables, vitamin C cannot be produced or stored by humans and must be obtained in the diet.
Ascorbic acid (vitamin C) levels below the mean may indicate a less than optimum level of the antioxidant vitamin C.
Individuals who consume large amounts of vitamin C can still have low values if the sample is taken 12 or more hours after intake. Since vitamin C (ascorbic acid) is a cofactor in the inactivation of dopamine-beta-hydroxylase by 4-cresol and HPHPA, vitamin C (ascorbic acid) supplementation and/or foods high in vitamin C should probably be avoided until Clostridia treatment has been completed, if Clostridia these markers are elevated.
Potential treatment options:
Suggested supplementation is 1000 mg/day of buffered vitamin C, divided into 2-3 doses.
Commonly elevated with supplementation. High values generally of no concern, but check oxalic acid levels. Kidney stones are unlikely if oxalic acid is in within range.
