    My doctor ordered an oxidative stress test to see what my glutathione levels look like. We are working on so many things (Lyme, leaky gut, hypothyroidism), she thought it would be helpful. I'm wondering if anyone on here is familiar with it and what you might think. She seemed to think things looked great. What I would really like to know, is why this is good information to have and what exactly is it telling me (if anything).

    Antioxidant (Intracellular)
    Percent Reduced Glutathione 95% (93.3-100.0%)
    total Glutathione 821.1 (658.3-988.5)

    Lipid Peroxidation
    F2-isoprostane .1 (.4-6.9)

    DNA Damage
    8-OHdG .4 (1.0-17.4)

    Enzyme Assays
    Glutathione Peroxidase 25.6 (18.1-191.2)
    SOD I 26.9 (4.9-23.0)
    SOD II 25.7 (9.4-47.0)

    So no one has any thoughts? With the importance of glutathione, I would just like to know if mine looks good and that it looks like I am able to use it.
