    I have been reading about Lab tests here since a while and speically about best labs to do them
    So here is my question !

    I want to do mycoplasma spiecies testing and pneumonia is one of them ,
    Chlamydia pneumonia too and I would send them out side but am not sure were because of diffrent results people said they got even from very good labs !

    Why do some people get positive antibody normal tests from any lab for mycpolasma and chlamydia pneumonia while other don't ?

    What is the best lab for testing them, I was thinking of Redlabs but read 2-3 forums saying they had negative results then KMD sent there blood to infectolab so what do you think guys ?!

    Please help me with this am dying from body aches and chest pain and breathing troubles and I should have the reason so let me know what should I do !!

    Thanks

    Infectolab's speciality is the LTT test. This is different from antibody testing, so you sometimes can find an infection this way when the antibody test is negative or inconclusive.

    So LTT is the best thing more than blood PCR ?

    They say LTT catches infections at a greater percentage than PCR but Infectolab only offers this test for 3 of the pathogens they test for and I think they are the only lab that does this test.

    I don't know how long it takes to develop antibodies--others may know.

    Some of us have trouble making antibodies though because of a dysfunctional immune system.

    P.S. You might have trouble getting blood to Infectolab fast enough.

    I can't advise you on this. Could you do them both? Perhaps the autism doctor could tell you what he wants. Do you mind saying which doctor this is?

    Could you get both tests?

    I'm glad you have the opportunity to see this doctor. If you discuss taking GcMAF, you might make sure he knows that many chronic disease patients are not able to tolerate the usual 100 ng dose of GcMAF given to Cancer and HIV patients.

    better than before with body pains and handling the life but having always bad days in every week, seems that my immune system is not working well until now so I should try something to push It up.

    tell me where are you going to test for those bacterial infections and what the result when you do them.

    am taking antibiotics to cover them without testing because of money issues so it might work or not, I wont lose nothing as I hope.

    best wishes
