Lower levels:
Low serine levels can lead to disordered methionine metabolism and deficits in acetylcholine synthesis. If simultaneous high threonine or phosphoserine, then need for vitamin B6, folate, and manganese is indicated.
Low serine may lead to memory problems and depression.
Higher levels:
High levels of serine when accompanied by low threonine, indicates glucogenic compensation and catabolism.
Supplement threonine and BCAAs.
