Why are my cholinesterase levels low?
I have had the hardest time finding out why my cholinesterase levels are low in my blood plasma. Actually I can't even find anyone in the medical feild that knows anything about cholinesterase. My levels are only low only in my plasma,not in rbc. I only found this out after applying for another job in the pest control industry. Yes pesticides do affect cholinesterase but I haven't come in contact with any chemicals for 8 mo. I'm really looking for anything else that I could be coming in contact with that could be inhibiting my cholinesterase levels. I'm not talking about altzheimers drugs because thats all I can find on the internet. Does anyone know what may be contributing to my low levels? Infection/disease, Drugs/alcohol, allergies, anything at all. Any help would be greatly appreciated, this thing is driving me crazy.

are you in pain?  Is there a reason to be concerned about the low levels?  Do you smoke? Sorry i wish that i could help, i tried looking but i guess you  have done your research too.  Looks like the chemicals in cigarettes can cause it, maybe if you dont smoke, second hand smoke?

I have started smoking tobacco from all this stress. If it weren't for this job I wouldn't even be pursuing this. no pain pe-say but I'm trying to get a job w/ this premiere company in the bay area and this is the only thing keeping me out. I actually just read something about nicotine exciting cholinesterase but I don't understand what that means. Actually i'm shocked anyone responded, I thought I was the only one who knew what cholinesterase was. Is there a possibility nicotine is causing a negative affect? AAAGGGHHH!! sorry, I'm too excitable right now. Any help would be awesome. thanx
