...for me to ask for help from out of nowhere. My 16yr old son has a host of symptoms, including chronic fatigue and many neurological symptoms that are distressing. He was diagnosed with Lyme disease, but that treatment road has not helped him so far. My doctor suggested the Nutreval test, but after a phone consultation I have learned that he doesn't know what many of the results mean. I was hoping someone here could give me some more information. I have already been searching the internet and have found some information, but I kept coming to this board so I thought I'd join. The only thing the doctor seemed interested in and quite surprised about was the high gamma linolenic acid. I understand the commentary in the back... I was just hoping I could learn more - especially how this might be affecting my son's health.
