Lysine Amino Acid Rosacea
This Blood test consists of testing the lysine (LYS) serum.
The lysine amino acid level is measured from blood.
Lysine is an essential amino acid. In vegetarians and vegans, the intake of lysine may be insufficient, as animal proteins in particular are rich in lysine. When infected by a parasite, lysine requirements increase.
Stress also increases lysine requirements lowering lysine levels can cause anxiety and possibly disrupts serotonin production.
This test can be done as a check at:
- Low dietary intake (vegetarianism, veganism, low-protein diet)
- Herpes simplex infection
- Aphthous ulcers
- Parasitic infection
- Chronic stress, anxiety
- Support bone remodeling, prevention osteoporosis, strengthening connective tissue
- Iron deficiency (where iron supplementation has inadequate results)
- Lack of appetite
Rosacea is a serious skin condition of the face, consisting of bright red skin with bumps and pimples. Rosacea stands for "as red as a rose" and can be seen by the bright red cheeks and/or nose. It is accompanied by pimples and bumps. Rosacea occurs later in life, more often in women than in men.
It is a very stubborn condition, but if you look into it properly, it is easy to treat.
Rosacea comes in 3 stages:
- In the first stage, one may start to blush very much, sometimes for hours. Small blood vessels appear and do not go away. Water and cold can cause a painful reaction.
- In addition to redness, bumps and pimples start to appear. Also, the pores on the face become more visible.
- The pimples and bumps become larger and thicker. The skin is very rough and can become painful. In some, it is accompanied by facial deformity.
