What tests should be done? Can LabCorp or Quest draw & send blood to Igenex? Do you need an order for test from a doctor. Do you pay yourself at the time? What type of payment?

No one can send blood samples from one lab to another .. or at least they WON'T do that.

contact Igenex and ask for a test kit...

They will send it for free. Get a doctor to sign off on the lab order. You can get the blood drawn at any lab .. as long as they are willing.

When you send it to Igenex, you include the money.

Their website requests a $20 deposit. I don't know if I can get a doctor to sign off except a LLMD. Can't get to one yet. LabCorp won't draw for them. I don't know about Quest.

Never heard about a $20 fee before for their test kit. I wonder if they've changed their policy?

You need to get clear with IGeneX or knowledgeable others what tests you want to order. Any doctor can sign off on tests ordered. The results come back to that doctor, so make sure you get a copy of results and we can help you with the interpretation.

I think you still need to get the bloodtests done early in the week and sent off. You can check with IGeneX about timing.
