    Sorry for the long post! But this may help you.

    <b>"1 - Chronic fatigue evaluation £324.50..... Didnt know there was a test for this"</b>

    There are some lab tests that can help with the question / determination of CFS. The test that your doctor requested may include some, all, or none (?):

    Toxic Chemical Evaluation
    Toxic Heavy Metal Evaluation using a "challenge" technique
    Viral Studies using PCR Technology
    Mycoplasma PCR Evaluation
    2'5A Systhetase System Evaluation
    RNAase Evaluation
    Free Radical Cytokine Evaluation
    Various Immune Studies
    Apoptosis Index
    Cell Cycle Analysis
    Sensitivity And Allergic Evaluation
    Gastrointestinal Evaluations
    Nutritional Biochemical Evaluations
    Oxygenation and Carbon Monoxide Characteristics
    Oxidative Stress Studies
    Hormonal Evaluation
    Detoxification
    Intestinal Permeability Characteristics
    Peripheral Nervous System Evaluation (if needed by history)
    Central Nervous System Evaluation (if indicated)

    <b>2 - Glucose tolerance And insulin £279.00 This one is to check for diabetes.</b>

    <hr>

    <b>3 - Haematology and biochemistry with electolytes £34.00</b>

    Most likely one that will be a CBC with differential to show the picture of the blood, a chem panel to measure internal organ functions like kidney and liver, and is interpreted in conjunction with the CBC since the two are so closely related.
