Are all labs the same/ which specific test should we request?

Hello All,

 

I have seen some posts where people complain that thier lab results showed no CPni, even though they have symptoms....and then they complain they should have used a better private lab although it is not clear who that lab might be.

 

I looked in the FAQ section to see which labs are recommended and it looks like Dr.  Stratton said Quest and Mayo labs and recommends a serologist test. Is this serologist test in addition to whatever test a regular doc would perform when screening for CPn?

Also, are Quest and Mayo labs the labs of choice...I have heard seen comments about Igenex, and wondering if it is worth thr trouble to fill out the papaerwork/hurdles to use them instead or some other lab in lieu of Quest or Mayo.

 

Thanks in advance,

Rick
