    Hi,

    I'm seriously thinking of testing my nagalase level to report on the activity of the homeo kmaf I'm starting to take. Problem is I'm in Canada and I wonder how to do this really. I can have a nurse draw the blood at home and but I'll have to deal with the shipping part myself. Anybody did it? Does the blood have to be frozen, separated or whatever before sending it?

    I believe the test isn't very expensive so it's the good part, now I only need a doc to prescribe it for me...

    you have to ask your doctor to contact this lab and they will send him a kit for the test:

    http://www.europeanlaboratory.nl/

    if you want to send it to redlabs in belgium, it will cost hundreds of dollars to mail.

    i understand that neither labs have a reliable test.

    So they can do it in the New Jersey but it's not reliable, that's what you mean?

    It is the same lab in the Netherlands and in New Jersey--just different branches. I was told that taking the test fasting makes it more reliable.

    I hadnt heard about fasting! thanks Sushi.

    When I said neither lab was reliable, I meant the one in NJ nor the one in Belgium (REDLABS).

    Now I am thinking maybe I will send blood to NJ and fast first....really would be great to have a way of following treatment.

    If we check other disease markers when using GcMAF and they are improving, maybe Nagalase isn't really necessary I think.

    Why do people say the tests are not reliable at these labs? How do we determine that?
    Thanks.
