Since I have been doing this long enough I have developed a system to help medical professionals to get down to the root cause of the problem with in 4 weeks to get answers their patients seek. People that have contacted me have spend thousands of dollars still having no answers. Now you can work with your dr to get down to the root cause of the problem. The nutra eval from genova is a very complex test to interpret. The Dr's usually have very little education on how to properly analyze it. Their patients are referred to me for further analysis. I hope this process helps any one who has been bounced around from Dr to Dr. I have been in that position my self and it was nothing but frustrating and confusing.
Here are the list of test which I recommend to Dr's to run to get an over all view of their patient.
These test are all covered by quest diagnostic..PLEASE MAKE SURE HE USES PROPER DIAGNOSTIC CODES which I listed some below. PLEASE MAKE SURE ALL DEDUCTABLES ARE CHECKED so you do not get hit with a surprise..
other hormone issues non specific
growth hormone deficiency
estradiol sensitive (10-50) or 13-54 not rapid
cortisol am and free
Cortisol binding globulin
ft3 - not t-3 uptake
food allergy complete panel
lyme panel - if you are in upper state NY, PA, NJ, or mountainous areas associated with this condition

You can also have your Dr open an acct with genova at no cost. He gets a free educational kit. He could order you the nutra eval which will give me more information then I will know what to do with to get down to the source of your issue. This will be a win win situation as its free. May cost you $29 bucks to draw the blood, but you will not have to worry about dealing with insurance. Do the nutra eval test then it will tell us if we need to go further with parasite testing. The nutra eval corresponds 90% with the gut test from parasite lab so before jumping the gun to order the GI testing. I just want to make it known that I have no affiliation with genova or parasite lab in anyway. I have use these labs in the past with complex cases with great success.
