Diannie...OYESME2 and WAZZUPLISA make several important points...the most important being that the website has a Prescreening Survey that must be completed anyway (no $$ involved) and is reviewed by the HomeCare Dietician with the patient and in this case parent, to determine ability to benefit from the Disease managment program.The HC does not accept anyone that does not meet certain criteria in the first place, as the company is not in the biz of peddling "blood tests as screening tools", rather tools for symptom reduction.While the symptoms are suggestive of possib le benefit, it is best to complete the whole survey and let the RD go over it first. Then you and your daughter can make an informed decision knowing what your options may or may not be.I also suggest that your daughter and you can benefit from having this book and reading it as well:"FOOD ALLERGIES AND FOOD INTOLERANCE: THE COMPLETE GUIDE TO THEIR IDENTIFICTION AND TREATMENT", Professor Jonathan Brostoff , M.D.. Allergy, Immunology and Environmental Medicine, Kings' College, London http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/089...6487508-3420903 best of luck.....on da road again....MNL
