I just received an interesting post on the Alternative Board and I thought of you. This guy, "raybakes", had some testing done and discovered a couple of things about himself:

"I had a liver genetic test done by great smokies labs and I have a null gene for one of my glutathione enzymes."


"Also had great smokies immune genetic profile done, and I have a polymorphisms in my interleukin 1 receptor antagonist gene! It means that I'm prone to chronic inflammation from unopposed expression of interleukin 1 - seems people with autoimmune disease frequently have this polymorphism. High levels of interleukin 1 can trigger free radical production and all the mitochondrial problems mentioned before."

Raybakes because of testing and his own research was able to turn himself from a nonresponder with regard to taking DLPA and tyrosine, into a responder. I figured that something along those lines might also work for someone who is a nonresponder to medications.

Maybe you've already had the kind of testing done that he refers to in his post, but if not, it might be something to add to your toolbox.

Here's the link if you're interested in reading more. There's probably a lot there about supplements that might not interest you (esp. in the beginning of the post) but overall I think you might get something out of it.
