I think urine tests be even better (more likely to come out positive), but I don't know much about about tests.
The only urine test that I have seen good results is the DNA Connexions test.
No Dr. needed for that one.
But ArminLabs, Igenex...I'm pretty sure the blood tests are the ones recommended.
That's what we mostly see here on the forum.
