I saw your blog post today about MTHFR and am wondering if their is a family history of autism why this test isn't include as part of your immunology panal? Is this something that you will start added to the immunology panal you test for? Would you recomend this testing if there is a known family history and there has already been a diagnosis of other immunology issues?

We have in fact made this a regular part of our immunology panel now. Yes I think this testing should be done with a family history or with immune disorders. I also strongly feel glutathione should be measured as well, but right now New York State will not authorize this testing so it can not be offered to those in NYS.
