|Drug Type||Amino Acids (change in mass after 1mg drug dosage)|
In a patient, the current level of enzymes in the bloodstream has created a dangerous imbalance:
- an overproduction of Valine by 12 mg and
- an underproduction of Serine by 24 mg

Hint- simultaneous equations
Answer: 4mg of Serine and 4mg of Valine
