Autism Tests We Did

dhaAutism Testing We Did

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. This test requires saliva.

 

 

 

neuroGene Savvy is another genetic testing company.  The Gene Savvy 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.    Gene Savvy 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.

 

 

Additional testing from local labs:

Strep Titers! Your local lab can do this one.  They will test ASO and DNase titers.  Great to see if your child possibly has PANDAS

Ferritin

liver levels

CBC

insulin

Complete Thyroid panel

Iodine & Selenium

A1C and fasting glucose

    I follow your blog and fb page daily! Thank you so much for what you’re doing for your family and all of us. It’s nice to actually have a positive path to follow. I wanted to touch on what another poster said about 23and me not giving all the gene information. I followed your advice and did the 23andme, downloaded the raw data, uploaded on the genetic gene site and I was only able to view half of the genomes. I’ve contacted 23andme and am awaiting a response as I’m so disheartened not to be able to get all the info needed. I’m currently seeing a natural doctor for my son who has been great, but am considering making an appointment with Dr. Sletten for a second opinion. You don’t know by chance if there’s any other dna websites doing the full raw data as 23andme was before? It’s crazy that they’re not giving out that information anymore. Hoping I can bug them enough to change their mind!
