Has anyone found an alternative to the test Immunosciences used to do that gave a balance between Th1/Th2? Thanks

Hey, Scott.

I have been looking into this topic myself and some research I came across suggested measuring the levels of 1,25D and 25 D and that will allow for determining that information.

According to what I read, this is stated by Dr. Marshall. I have not had a chance to confirm this or not, but this article shed some light:

The Importance of Reducing 25-D By: Dr. Trevor Marshall, Ph.D.

Missing the link. Where was the jump from D levels to Th1/Th2 balance? I am not making the connection

RNase L Panel looks interesting (Chronic fatigue syndrom)


"We would therefore expect to see increased RNase L activity as a normal part of a viral infection."

There is also RedLabs in Belgium:

Scott,

As I said, I had not had a chance to confirm the correlation, as this was simply something I stumbled upon briefly.

Towards the end of the article, he references Th1 dominates and the correlating ratio of the D levels.

He seems to imply that higher D 1,25 levels means higher Th1 activation. I am going to look into the cytokine panel as well. Thanks

That seems like the panel to run as that is what I was looking for as well. I'm glad you posted this topic and thanks to asus for posting the link.

Scott, from I what I heard, Immunosciences is not doing any testing right now.

I am not sure if that is temporary or what the deal is.

I have seen people on immunesupport post their redlabs readings. You might look over there to see some of the results

No it is not temporary from what I understand. Immunosciences stopped all lab testing.

Some of their tests are now being done by NeuroImmunology / NeuroRelief / Neurosciences but only a subset and not the cytokine panel.

Be well,
Scott
