I have been trying to keep a list of the various test's that are talked about here Some are associated with a particular protocol. Some stand alone but believed to be important part of figuring out your own bodies take on CFS,lyme,FMS etc. I am going to list the ones I am aware of and the recommended labs. If I have something wrong please let me know. If there are other important test could you post them please If they should be done at a certain lab, post that or if you know the cost or type or does it require Rx, post that too I think for us new comers, just starting to put together a plan based on information we have gotten on this forum it would really be helpful. It would also be nice after we compile the list to have a sticky, and also to include what the test is for. The first 2 test's I believe are suggested by RickVanK for the Simplified protocol. 1. Methylation Pathyways Panel from Vitamin Diagnostics Test for methylation cycleblock and gluthione depletion. Good one to tell you if methylation treatment will be helpful. Cost is $300 2. Essential Elements, Amino Acids & Toxic urine test from( I have 2 down, so not sure if this is right) Docters Data Lab & Direct Labs. The 24 hr urine collection is better than the spot urine test. Other test's that Rich has talked about but not sure he suggest that they be done before starting the Simplified protocol. 1.Exatest tests for magnesium mouth swab 2. Metabolic Analysis Profile from Genova Diagnostics do not know if its blood or other or if you need Rx for it. 3. KPU test from Kryptopyrrole.com I know nothing about this one........someone enlighten me please. I assume Yasko also recommends the ones above, if following her protocol????? Any others? Some random tests or labs that have been talked about here 1. VIP Vira Immune Pathology from redlabsusa 2. Organic Acid test for ammonia toxicity 3. CDSA + OVA + Parasites from Meridian Valley Labs 4. Nutrigenomic testing 5. Cytochrome test Has to do with liver detoxing drugs?? 6. Detoxigenomic Profile from Genova Diagnostics ?? OK thats it. Sorry it is such a mess, I am not good on computer stuff but maybe we can flesh this out, correct, add too, and then someone who knows what they are doing can make a sticky........yes?? Now someone is going to tell me a sticky already exsits! Forgive any spelling error's. I wont blame it on CFS as it was bad already, but it has gotten worse.
