330 Possible Causes for Tryptophan Increased

  • Hepatic Encephalopathy

    Benzodiazepine-like compounds have been detected at increased levels as well as abnormalities in the GABA neurotransmission system.[en.wikipedia.org] Increased production of endogenous BZPs has been proposed.[emedicine.medscape.com] An imbalance between aromatic amino acids (phenylalanine, tryptophan and tyrosine) and branched-chain amino acids (leucine, isoleucine and valine) has been described; this[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Acute Glomerulonephritis

  • Tryptophanemia

    […] are also seen in Hartnup disease, [5] a disorder of amino acid transport. [6] However, the increase of tryptophan in that disorder is negligible when compared to that of[en.wikipedia.org] Dx increased serum tryptophan Wernike encephalopathy Thiamine deficiency due to malnutrition, or Alcoholism Congenital (I.E. present at Birth) A variety of structural brain[cmdg.org] Urinary indoles, initially negative, tested positive on increasing the sensitivity of the test, thus reieterating the diagnosis.[ijdvl.com]

  • Post-Streptococcal Glomerulonephritis

    A case of acute encephalopathy with posterior corticosubcortical vasogenic edema on magnetic resonance imaging is reported. Angiography showed cerebral arterial vasospasm. A diagnosis of acute post-streptococcal glomerulonephritis was made 2 days after admission. This report highlights the fact that acute[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Urinary Tract Infection

    IDO expression is increased during Escherichia coli urinary tract infection (UTI).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The kynurenine-to-tryptophan (K/T) ratio is used as a surrogate for biological IDO enzyme activity.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] BACKGROUND: Indoleamine-2,3-dioxygenase (IDO) catalyzes the first step of tryptophan (Trp) catabolism, yielding kynurenine (Kyn) metabolites.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Hartnup Disease

    As a result, the concentration of tryptophan increases in the urine and decreases in the blood, and there is less tryptophan available for the synthesis of niacin.[britannica.com] An oral challenge with 200 mg/kg of tryptophan ethyl ester resulted in a prompt increase in serum tryptophan to a peak of 555 microM.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] In Hartnup disease, it is believed that the transport system in the kidney tubule that normally reabsorbs tryptophan into the body circulation is defective.[britannica.com]

  • Insomnia

  • Endogenous Depression

    increases the production of serotonin, three doses per week of this simple low-cost solution effectively protect me from serotonin deficient depression.[balancingbrainchemistry.co.uk] Antidepressants however not the only way to raise serotonin there is evidence that raising the level of tryptophan (the amino acid that serotonin is made from) in the brain[balancingbrainchemistry.co.uk]

  • Reactive Depression

    increases the production of serotonin, three doses per week of this simple low-cost solution effectively protect me from serotonin deficient depression.[balancingbrainchemistry.co.uk] Antidepressants however not the only way to raise serotonin there is evidence that raising the level of tryptophan (the amino acid that serotonin is made from) in the brain[balancingbrainchemistry.co.uk]

  • Toxoplasmosis

    At least some of these effects, possibly mediated by increased dopamine and decreased tryptophan, are products of manipulation activity by Toxoplasma aiming to increase the[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] tryptophan levels in all brain regions ( Dunn, 2006 ) or alternatively there are only proximate effects on serotonin in the specific area surrounding the cysts.[doi.org] Irritability rather than depression during interferon treatment is linked to increased tryptophan catabolism.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
