Are all labs testing antibodies equally accurate? When other posters have mentioned American doctors sending samples to the CDC: is this antibody tests as well?

The equivalent tests in the UK are too expensive, unless I can pinpoint one or two and be certain the results will be accurate...

Many of those are on the Metametrix profiles - did you get one of those?


Have you asked your GP to do the tests? Or refer you to a specialist?

Has anyone done the MetaMetrix blood tests and got a positive for something?

Have anyone tested with MetaMetrix after it had joined with Genova Diagnostics?

No it was Genova. However, that's all they found that and candida. It was a waste of money- in my opinion.
