probably been asked a million times but which test do you think is best?
It probably depends a lot on your budget. My understanding is that the Yasko test is extremely expensive. You might be better off doing the 23 and Me test and then using the money saved to do the methylation pathways panel and/or NutrEval to see what's actually going on in your body.
do i need a RX for the NutEval ?
No you can order it yourself from directlabs.com or https://www.integrativepsychiatry.net/genova_diagnostics_nutreval.html.
$800 bucks yikes... I wonder if it will really tell me what heck is wrong with me
You can take a look at a sample report here http://www.gdx.net/core/sample-reports/NutrEval_FMV-Sample-Report.pdf and decide if it's information that you might find useful. There is also an interpretation guide kicking around the forums that looks helpful.
Do you want the genetic test or a functional test of your methylation status? Health Diagnostics does the functional test for a bit over $300. That is the one that I used.
im not sure what the difference is, should you have both or ones enough?
It depends on what you want to find out! One tells you genetic predispositions, the other tells you the current actual state of methylation.
thansk guys.. can you also recommend a good conclusive GI panel test i can order for home?
The Genova Comprehensive Digestive Stool Analysis (CDSA) is probably a good place to start. You can order it yourself here.
halcyon you think its better then the GI panel from Diagnos Techs?
I'm not familiar with that one but it looks more or less similar to the CDSA/P.
