  1. Does Dr T use this lab? I looked up the order form and it says you need a petitioner, which I am assuming is a doctor. Thanks!
  2. That's very helpful. Thanks for spelling it out for me. .
  3. Thanks so much for the responses. One more question: would you recommend running Yasko's test for MTHFR mutations or does the 23andme give you the same information? I've already ordered the 23andme kit, but was wondering over the last day or so if Yasko would compliment this or provide duplicate information. I guess I could also do the test through Lab Corp although I doubt I will be able to get it covered by insurance given our current situation (Kaiser HMO). Thanks very much!
  4. I was just wondering, other than MTHFR, what the most common genetic issues found among PANDAS children have been? Any data or insights appreciated. Thanks! Our story: We suspect ds3 does have PANDAS and are doing the testing, but know from past experience that he has a horrible reaction to extended antibiotic use - last time we did 5-6 rounds for ear infections he was regressing and I thought he would be dx with autism. He recovered, for the most part, once abx were stopped. The worst is Augmentin. Anyway, we've had an organic acids test done that had some mildly funky results but no
  5. Just ordered the 23andme test kit. Thanks. Wondering if anyone has found Amy Yasko's protocol to be relevant for their pandas child? Thanks.
  6. One thing we did find was that his kappa and lambda light chain values were both low, although the ratio was in the normal range. Does anyone know what this means?
  7. Thanks so much for all the comments and suggestions. IgG subclasses were checked. They were IgG 1 - 371, 2- 107, 3 - 31, 4 - 4.3. Dd and I just had sore throats last week with small rashes on our backs. So last week three of the four of us were swabbed for strep, both quick and 48 hr culture, including my son. All came back negative. I will look into NC doctor as well as testing suggestion.
  8. Thanks so much for the response. I made an appointment with Dr Latimer for September. If anyone has any suggestions in the Southeast of who we could see in the meantime, I would appreciate it.
  9. Thanks for approving my post. I also wanted to add that I have put him on amoxicillin until I can find a doctor to offer us a road map on what to do - he got the first dose yesterday.
  10. Hello, We have a 37 month old son with what is now a slight speech delay as well as some sensory issues. He has had 13 ear infections that we know of and most recently a fungal infection in his middle ear. He has been my child that always gets sick - constant colds and too many ear infections. No hospitalizations though. We recently went through a round of infections and by the end the antibiotics had totally wiped him out. Horrible smelling diarrhea for two months, pica, and seemed to almost be regressing to a mildly autistic state. I got him on probiotics and pretty hard core nutri
