Urine Tests


Senior Member
Have people found good results with the mold urine tests? The various articles and books I've read seem to debate the efficacy or usefulness. If it were some pinpoint thing, that makes sense - take exactly these binders. But since I have an extreme reaction to things like mold (a leaky faucet crashes my CFS even before I find it), I know it's an issue already, so I'm undecided on getting the urine test. When I got various house tests (traditional, mycotoxins, ERMI, etc), my house comes up as quite clean and no molds significantly higher than outside levels - yet I have had extreme reactions at times.
