    Hi everyone,

    I had one doctor order the Metametrix Organix Basic Profile and another doctor order the NutrEval test from Genova Diagnostics. I'm wondering if anyone has any experience with these. I'm tempted to do them both, but don't want to spend needless money if the results are redundant. Anyone know?

    Thanks!

    I believe they are very similar. More people seem to be doing the Nutreval, and thus there is more info about it.

    There is a link to the Nutreval Interpretation Guide in my signature. This is a compilation of interpretations provided by Rich Vank (r.i.p.).

    I am so glad I asked!! Thank you very much for the input! Of COURSE they're the same company. Ridiculous. :)

    Now that I've actually looked at the Metametrix Organic Basic Profile sample interpretation, there is some overlap, but the Nutreval is a lot more comprehensive. Plus, more people seem to be using it, and there is more interpretation information available. So assuming you can afford it, I would go with the Nutreval.

    I just love that Kreb's cycle diagram. It tells you why you're not making energy.
