I decided to test with Diagnos tech because I have seen some reports of Amoeba H from this test. I spent hours digging for reports on this Diagnos Tech test online. I found some reports of Amoeba H findings with its saliva test. However, I haven't seen any reports of Giardia! I checked the reports from other labs but Diagnos Tech was the most frequently reported with positives for Amoeba. The other labs I checked for reports from people online where Drs data, Genova Diagnostics, Parasitology Center Inc. Genova Diagnostics came in second place as far as positives for Amoeba. I have seen at least one report of Giardia with Genova.
Unfortunately not many people post or talk about their test results online. I already wasted money on MetaMetrix, Quest Diagnostics and Jetty Katz lab in the last 6 years and I can't recommend those.
I was not expecting much from the Diagnos Tech test but I had to give a chance since I could not find a better option at that time.
No lab I tried in USA has revealed Amoeba or Giardia in my tests. This is frightening and people should be aware of this. Amoeba can be deadly (as mentioned before in the forums).
Its very likely that I still have Amoeba H or Giardia. Apparently its not uncommon for protozoa symptoms to re-appear 2 months after treatment and I'm not talking about re-contamination!
BTW, stool collection are only done two days with the Diagnos tech test. It says 3 days but the second day is skipped and the second stool collection is on the 3rd day!!
I really need to confirm which bug I still have or not have to take medications and do treatment efficiently and not create a worse situation. I'm looking at rectal mucosa test and if that fails I'm going to see if I can travel to Brazil and test at Labion again.
Thanks for the replies everyone!
All the best
