I was wondering what experience you have had with Genova labs. I am considering the CDSA 2.0 and the nutrEval for my daughter. Her GI (as expected) didn't seem very interested in dealing with the lab. Did those of you who have had the test done find the information helpful? Did it affect your treatment decisions? I'd also like to hear if you had the test done and not found it worthwhile. Who ordered the test for you==regular or alternative doc?

Thanks in advance

I've never had either test run. Genova Diagnositics was formerly Great Smokies something or other and their tests were mostly "alternative medicine" type of tests used mostly by alternative medicine doctors. They've now "graduated" to more "mainstream" testing as well. That is most likely why your daughter's gastro was uninterested.

My gastro and I do utilize Genova's fecal calprotectin test - due to my pushing for it - and the fecal calprotectin test is recognized by and reimbursed by Medicare. I can't vouch for any other of Genova's tests.

IF you opt to insist on having the tests you've mentioned being done BE SURE to find a LICENSED MD OR DO who also does alternative medicine! You can run into GREAT EXPENSE w/some of these alternative medicine doctors who will take you for a very expensive uninsured "ride" that only fattens THEIR pocket book.
Some people are like Slinkies... Not really good for anything, but they still bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs.
