Lab testing


I believe i have CP, i have been sick for more than a year.  i have done done many type of blood test.  but not for cp.  i asked my doctor for cp test, but she said she doesnt know anything about it.  currently i am not living in U.S so does anyone know what test i should ask for.

HiIt's my understanding that unless you're already following treatment that the odds are that any convention  IgG, or IgM test will come back negative and unreliable.  This is why Dr. Wheldon came up with the NAC test, which is an empirical test only.  You begin taking NAC at 600mg per day and see whether or not you get a reaction from it.  The reaction is typically called "NAC Flu" because you get runny nose symptoms from it if you're positive.In my case, I took 1200mg/day, which was crazy but I wanted no doubts about it.  On day 1, I didn't notice any difference, day two I noticed feeling more off banlance the usual in the morning, but on day 3, I had to hold onto everything in reach whenever I would try to stand and walk.The one thing I learned recently from my doctor is that this sort of response might be due to other things rather than Cpn.  I don't know what other things, but he wasn't convinced of it as a diagnostic test.So, it's up to you what you want to do, but the empirical test is something you can do more immediately.
