A Prometheus test is a blood test to determine what kind of liver enzymes you have that in turn determines which you would do better on; Imuran or 6mp. Prometheus labs is the only lab that does this and it is in CA. After the initial Prometheus test, sometimes the GI will send out intervals of blood for the Prometheus metabolites test to determine the Imuran/6mp levels and to be sure you are at the proper theurepedic (sp?) levels.
