What can it mean to have a high pyruvate level? I have an 18 year history of auto-immune diseases- is there a correlation?

Doctors are always concerned with the lactate-to-pyruvate ratio: an abnormal ratio is related to other medical conditions.  If your lactate level was normal and your pyruvate was elevated you might want to go to  www.diagnosispro.com, and type in the words "elevated pyruvate level".  Scroll down to the Lab section and select  "pyruvate, increased". This will give you a list of conditions associated with elevated pyruvate.

Your Doctor should answer any further questions you may have.

Good Luck!
