    So, I am thinking of going to see Dr. DeMeirleir, actually I have an appointment made already but am not sure. I want to make sure that he'll be able to help me so I want to take his test, but when I went on proteabiopharma (which is where I read somewhere else that the test would be) they only have the th1/th2 test. Which one is the right test?

    I am not sure what you mean by an H2S test. Dr De Meirleir was interested in hydrogen sulphide a while back but I am not sure that he still is. I suspect the test no longer exists. I would not bother with a Th1/Th2 test, which is meaningless. To be honest I don't think either of these tests has anything to do with ME/CFS.

    The tests developed by protea are ordered from www.redlabs.be .

    They don't seem to offer the H2S test any more. Taking either of these tests (H2S, Th1/Th2) would not tell you whether he could help you, anyway.

    I was thinking of having the test named CYTH from the immunology panel.

    CYTH Th1/Th2 cytokines (IL-2, IL-4, IFN╬│ mRNA)

    Do you think this test is useless as well? It is not the same as the urine test.
