Lab testing is often used to understand how any imbalances in your body could be contributing to your condition and/or symptoms.
These tests may include:
A comprehensive blood panel
An antibody panel that assesses which parts of the brain or body the immune system is attacking and, thus, causing symptoms
A gluten sensitivity panel (people can react to many different portions of gluten, the protein in wheat linked in the research to numerous neurological conditions)
An expanded gluten cross-reactivity and sensitivity panel, which assesses the foods to which your body reacts as if they were gluten or to which your immune system has become sensitized
Adrenal salivary panels to assess how stress plays a role in your condition
Hormone panels, and more.
