    It’s all bulk billed worth a shot and yes laverty are the main collectors & from what I understand more comprehensive than Douglas Hanly
    Yes I was told Laverty was better than DHM. Interesting that these are bulk billed. I assumed they weren’t.

    Your doc will need to tick the bulk bill box.

    Thanks for the tip! I notice they don’t sometimes... and then at the lab they tick yes for the ones that can be bulk billed

    Looking at the Laverty Test Guide the closest tests I can find are:

    LSM: Lymphocyte surface markers/ Lymphocyte Markers studies/typing or White cell surface markers.

    Is this going to give sufficient information?

    I also saw these tests in the manual:
    CD4, CD8, CD4/CD8 ratio, CD3, CD16/56, CD59 - Lymphocyte typing, Cell markers.

    Is this a separate test that I would need the GP to request? Or is this covered in the “LSM” test.

    NK Cells - which they then say refer to “flow cytometry” which then goes on to say “see LSM” - which is the first test mentioned - so looks like this LSM tests for NK cells??

    Sorry for all the questions. I just like to be prepared! I’d hate to get to Laverty and them not know what the GP is requesting.... since these are not commonly requested tests!
    I’d love to know your acupuncturist too. I’ll be needing someone when I stay in Sydney for a couple of weeks during my cycle. Good luck with this round.

    There is also a great acupuncturist in the cbd that I went to called Dr Kirk Wilson. I got pregnant naturally the first time thanks to him and he is also the person that recommended I see Dr M and suspected I had high NK cells. He knows a lot!

    @Faerygirl the only issue will be that your GP is capable of interpreting the tests! Dr M seems to be the only one in Oz but I’d be happy to be shown otherwise.

    Also list out all those ones from the manual. Write “surface markers” then list all those numbers.

    Good luck!

    Hi all,

    I hope you don’t mind me jumping in ...

    After being previously told by bt and biopsy that my nkc were fine, dr M found that they were rather elevated.

    I have done a lot of reading today on immune protocoles... as i feel more anxious than I would like about the side effects, conflicting info on protocoles, how dq alpha results were read etc I have started second guessing the decisions I have made 🤯

    Do you know what numbers to look at with the hla-dr & Hla-dq?

    Anyway instead of suffering silently, I thought I would say hello that now I have started this protocole as you guys might understand too well how I feel
