I am considering offering a stool analysis and a blood profile for a 5 yr old autistic boy. I understand the procedure for the stool analysis but what should I order as far as a blood test to check for heavy metals? Am I on the right track? Thank You?
The Microbiology (stool analysis) and Food Allergy Testing (blood test) would be good tests to start. Then you can get into Heavy Metal Testing and Organic Acid Testing which are 24 hour urine tests.
