Re: Has anyone had their insurance pay for a saliva test?
This is just my 2 cents.......
This may sound negative but I have had 4 or 5 saliva tests over the years. NONE were paid for by Insurance. It was at the beginning of my journey to find out what was wrong with me. The companies you named are some that I used......There were no difference in their lab results than with serum blood tests I had both done. Save your money and go get blood drawn and have your insurance pay for it. I found the saliva results no different that the blood results.
I have a friend in Dallas who her Doctor recommends the saliva testing but she has an$ interest in the Compounding Pharmacy that makes up what you need. Sooooooo...
Looking back 8 years ago when my symptoms started I tried all sorts of things, read every book, tried every supplement and herb, every diet, every saliva test and compounded hormones, you name it.....ugHHHHHHHHHHHHHH
I spent a fortune on testing and compounded hormones. None worked for me.
I had headaches and gained a ton of weight on them. That is just my experience. If any of my experience can help one person I will be happy.
To anyone who is not feeling well I would recommend the following:
Full Thyroid Panel with antibodies
2 hour blood sugar with 2 hour Insulin test
RAST food allergy test
Celiac test, Autoimmune Panel
Full Hormone Panel
Full Cortisol Panel
Vit D level
Complete Chem panel
Today I feel great!!!! I have energy, my weight is way down....I am happy.
