INFORMATION ON TESTING IN NEW YORK:
With all the confusion on the testing in New York, I thought I would post the following to clarify the facts.
I personally believe it does not matter which lab you use, as long as you use one that is efficient and covers all the underlying issues we are seeing with Morgellons people so far, such as:
*Vitamin and Mineral deficits
*Any Blood or Mucous in stool
Ideally the testing should also include checking (*Lactoferrin*,*Phospholipids*,*Short Chain Fatty Acids*, and *Betaglucanase*)
I spoke with a practitioner in NY to inquire on the general rule for Great Plains Labs ordered in New York, and it is :
*Along with the four items mentioned and in parenthesis above, New York does not allow labs to run salivary and heavy metals hair analysis test.
*Patients and physicians in New York cannot order The Great Plains Laboratory (GPL) tests because GPL is not licensed in NY at this time.
* There are other Labs that cannot run Comprehensive Stool or Organic Acid Urine tests in NY.
I have contacted several doctors offices and several labs directly and unfortunately for those in new York you will not be able to have testing run with
'Lactoferrin, Short Chain Fatty Acids, Phospholipids, Betaglucanase or testing that includes salivary or hair analysis, unless you access these services in another state.
We will continue to develop a network of Morgellons friendly doctors across the country,who are familiar with GPLS advanced testing techniques and interpretation of testing.
We like GPL because of the good reports of their efficiency, and their over the top helpful and efficient customer service.
I hope this helps you alot.
With all my heart all I want is for you all to get well,
