Kryptopyrrole Quantitative Urine
We use this lab for testing for Pyroluria. Which is a genetic metabolic disorder. You can read about the condition here. I myself tested positive for it. We also ordered zinc plasma, copper serum and ceruloplasmin serum. No doctors order needed. Which is a huge bonus. Order here
Genova Diagnostics NutrEval is the mother of all Organic Acid Tests (OAT) This test provided so much information for us. It measures yeast, gut dysbiosis, nuerotransmitters,oxidative stress, metals, vitamin levels, and so much more! Worth it’s weight in gold. Our insurance has even covered this one 100%! This test requires blood and urine. A great test to do if you child has been diagnosed with autism or any other condition on the autism spectrum
Genova Diagnostics ONE FMV think of this one as a “mini” NutrEval, and is a bit cheaper. However leaves off the amino acids information. Which is okay if you have done a test like the NutrEval a year earlier. This test still provides all the info of vitamin levels, yeast, nuerotransmitter levels, oxidative stress, mito dysfunction etc. This test is also urine only! No blood draw. A good test to do a year after NutrEval.
Genova Diagnostics CDSA test for digestion and absorption, bacterial balance and metabolism, yeast and immune status for patients with irritable bowel syndrome, indigestion, malabsorption, and other GI-related problems. Additionally, Genova offers a parasitology component with the CDSA test that evaluates for parasites using microscopic examination and EIA testing. This test requires a stool sample. (blah)
Alletess is great for testing food/environmental allergies AND sensitivities! We re-do this test every year. Costs around $150 (kit is $10) but insurance sometimes will pick up part of the tab. This test is done with blood.
23andMe can help you find out if your child has a MTHFR gene mutation and many other mutations. Anthony has a BHMT muation. This basically means he was not methylating properly. We put Anthony on TMG because for this reason and it gave him normal speech and stopped his sensory issues. It also Reports on 240+ health conditions and traits Cost is $199 (plus shipping and handling) This test requires saliva. Additional collection kit available for young children.
Courtagen is another genetic testing company. The Courtagen test gave us some very interesting information and informed us that Anthony has a condition that impacts his bodies abilities to balance glucose and insulin. Courtagen is committed to helping physicians, families, and children suffering with neurological disorders. Test results provide your doctor with genetic information to help diagnose disease and guide treatment decisions. Genetic testing can lead to positive changes or, in some cases, major improvements in a child’s quality of life. This test requires saliva, similar to 23 and me. I Highly recommend applying for COURTAGEN CARE. Through this program the test can range from $0 – $200 based on income and financial information.
