    I was wondering if anyone here has had there levels of lysine and arginine tested..........and if so, were they low?

    I don't know my levels, but this I do know:

    I'm prone to bouts of heavy bleeding (even urethral bleeding), and I find that acidic & arginine foods aggravate this, whereupon I need to counterbalance that with a diet high in alkaline & lysine foods. I.E. the ulcer-herpes diet.

    However, I'm also prone to bouts of constipation, whereupon acidic & arginine foods are helpful in combatting the constipation.

    So I more or less walk a tightrope.
