International ME/CFS and FM Awareness Day Is On May 12, 2018
Thomas Hennessy, Jr., selected May 12th to be our international awareness day back in 1992. He knew that May 12th had also been the birthday of Florence Nightingale. She was the English army nurse who helped to found the Red Cross as well as the first school of nursing in the world.

    I am interested in having the above 2 tests performed. I have no idea where to start to look - I am in Canada but willing to travel whereever.

    Has anyone done any research into either test ? If so, I'd appreciate your insight.

    I know that they test the IGF-1 levels which are suppose to correlate somehow to the levels of growth hormone. I was reading another atricle awhile back that recommended having another test in conjunction with IGF-1 due to the IGF-1 not being very accurate by itself. I'll look for that article and post back if I find it.

    You can order these test right of the internet and you just go to a Labcorp locaion and have the blood drawn. PrivateMDLabs.com is one right of the top of my head and you get a 15% discount on your first order.
