    Can I ask which lab do people go to in the UK for a NK blood test? A bio marker for M.E. - right?

    Thanks

    Mine went to the the USA once. This was through a doctor who arranged it though and he has left the UK.

    I Know that Redlabs in Belgium does some immune testing but I am not sure if they do NK testing.

    (my experience was that the lab in a Surry hospital (sorry cannot remember name) didn't return the same results and I wondered at the accuracy.

    I often wonder about NHS blood test accuracy.

    But I think its better to find somewhere in UK to test as the additional time of blood travelling abroad concerns me a little.

    I see the fertility clinics often test for NK including Uterine NK. As if they are too high this causes miscarriages. (just an additional bit of info I picked up!)

    That's where I started learning about NK cells and activity
