A few things to consider

No one really really knows all the mechanics of how lysine works in the body. The scientific method is theory and observation. Most published research turns out to be wrong or irreplicable.

Nearly all doctors are very intelligent, very compassionate people honestly doing their best to help you, but increasingly they face the same limits to knowledge as everyone else. Doctors sometimes have to Google things too, this is not because they are not competent professionals but because Google is a near-miraculous technology.

Biology is often very hard to measure and therefore also to diagnose, Nobel Prizes have been given for theories we now know were wrong.

Err on the side of caution. Always hope for longitudinal studies. If you have a lot of money, pay for some!
