    Eliself reacted to wisdom_seeker in CellTrend, Vibrant Wellness or other AE auto-antibody tests?   
    Has anyone done CellTrend testing for auto-antibodies?  This test was developed for POTS and ME/CFS,  but surprisingly my son tested high positive for over half the 11 auto-antibodies in the panel. 
    I'm treating this as very meaningful for likely AE.  But would our insurance agree and pay for IVIG or PEX, based on a research test from Germany?

    Still it's enough for us to want to get serious about getting evidence to justify IVIG or PEX  (both to us, DS20 himself, and insurance companies). 
    However, years ago we'd spent $$$ for the Cunningham panel and insurance completely discounted that.  So I'd like to know what other autoantibodies DS has, but I'd also like it to be meaningful to insurance companies.   
    What have you found useful?
    Candidates I know are:
    Vibrant Wellness' Neural Zoomer Plus Moleculera labs' Cunningham Panel   (much better for PANDAS than PANS) Cyrex Labs CellTrend' GmBH's CellTrend Mayo Clinic's ENS2 Labcorps Quest The only ones that are FDA-certified (?) and reimbursable in the US (as opposed to "research tests") are the last three -- the Mayo clinic's  classical autoantibody panel (largely for cancer) and the very limited ones from Labcorps and Quest 
    I care about getting info that's useful to us and to insurance companies.  So if one of the first 4 was useful for anyone appealing for IVIG rejection, I'd love to hear that.

    Thank you so much to each of you for taking the time to read it - and to give feedback. I know it breathes life into her plight to share her experience with others. It is also good therapy and inspiration - for all of us!
