  1. Hi--Kimball originally sent a letter saying I was DQ2 and 8 negative--nothing else. When they reran the test, a new letter came saying I was DQ8 positive. Enterolab said I was...
  2. I thought I'd share my experience on gene testing again since this topic pops up from time to time. I know Kimball Labs is very respected, but they misdiagnosed me the first time...

  11. Thank you both for your replies. It helps to know there are sites like this where I can go for info. and advice!
