The second kind of test looks for the virus itself and is more precise. ...Read more

Hello, please, provide your thoughts on alcat tests and other tests of this kind. Thanks in advance, peter?
No value: The alcat has no scientific basis. It is a non-standardized test of quasi-science. It is not accepted by any board-certified allergist immunologist. I know there is a lot of hype around the company's web site and the testimonials. Still, there are other, well tested tests for allergy. See an allergist/immunologist. ...Read more

Finding conflicting info on Healthtap regarding length of Valium staying in system for ua. Doctor answered me, but no other answers I've seen?
Yes it is confusing: Yes it is confusing, because for valium itself, the half life is 36 hours by average, but it turns to an active metabolite which has 80 hr (by average) half life instead. Having that said, if we count on valium's active metabolite, it will take 240 hours (3-4 half lifes) to have valium and metabolites cleared out from your body hope this answer is final and you would not seek more help. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

At this point, how valuable is genetic testing for TRD, really? Quick scan of the internet yielded competing answers (from yes to no to inconclusive).
Seems fringe to me: One source of confusion is that there's a group that's promoting genetic screening for minor variants in folic acid metabolism as a major mental health breakthrough. Most pathologists remain skeptical. "Pop" testing for cytochrome p450 seems even more dubious. What will you do with a particular result? Won't you keep trying therapies and meds until something works? Don't give up. ...Read more
