    I am curious to know if those of you who have taken this test followed the guidelines from the lab which says all supplements and several other medications I take need to be stopped 4 days before the test!
    I am afraid to go off some of the stuff I take but then if I dont I may not get accurate results

    It depends on what you want from the test. If you want a look at the underlying problems you have, then the drugs will make it much harder to figure out if the values are accurate. But if you want to see the effect your regimen is having, you should stay on them.

    If it's your first test, you probably want to see what your body is doing, not what the current treatment is doing.

    What if you cannot afford to do the test more than once?

    Once is fine. It will give you information for treatment that will probably take years to complete. I did mine in Oct. 2012, and don't feel the need to do another one. Although I have done individual followup tests, such as stool tests and toxic metals.

    Did you stop your supplements before doing the test?
