Which tests should I request?

Hi, everyone!

I was wondering which tests (bloodtests especially) I should request at my appointment with the LLMD.

I was going to ask for some tests like:

- co-infections
- mononucleosis
- thyroid
- adrenal glands
- autoimmune diseases

...and pretty much anything the doctor can think of. I want to get better!

Are there any more that you recommend that I get?

I'm going to Dr. E in New Jersey, so I'm sure that I'm in good hands, but suggestions would still be great.

Do LLMDs usually do testing on your heart and brain, or is that something to go to other doctors about?

You might want to ask about testing your nutritional stuff.

I can't think of what it's called, but I had a test that tested the amount of different nutrients in my body.

You will be in good hands with Dr. E. She will know what tests to run after she examines you and speaks with you.

I am so glad you are going! Remind me when your appointment is.

Oh, okay. Me too! It's very exciting... I can't believe that I'm actually going! My appointment is for June 26. One more week!
