Hi, after many varied problems with my gut, things have got pretty much unbearable. I have tried all sorts of things, but as it is such a huge subject i cant seem to hit on THE thing to help. I currently have another thread where it was suggested to me that i do a comprehensive stool test. The test recommended was the metametrix DNA stool analysis test, which i can order in the UK http://www.metametrix.com/test-menu/profiles/gastrointestinal-function/dna-stool-analysis-gi-effects the other option is the Genova diagnostics http://www.gdx.net/product/10123 The advantage to the Genova test is that it is cheaper, and that i can get Dr Myhill to order it for me. She will also do an analysis of the results and send a copy to my GP. The metametrix test on the other hand may be difficult to interpret, although it llooks more in depth at first glance, its also about £100 more expensive - and i will be having to borrow the money to do this testing. I want to know what experience others have had of these tests and wether they were helpful or not. Is one of these labs considered better than the other? Is there another better test, that i can order from the UK? Thanks, Justy.
