I am by no means a hemotologist ( I can’t even spell the word). But I kept the list of all the blood tests they made me go through when they were trying to diagnose the cause of my numbness. Here they are:
Blood film exam
IgG, IgA, IgM quantitation
Serum Vitmin B12
anti-GM1 ganglioside antibody
2 hr glucose tolerance test
I think that you can get information on the blood tests online to see what they are all for.
In addition, on separate occasions, they took a blood sample and sent it away to a lab (in my case in Ottawa) to determine if it was a genetic problem. They also sent a sample for Anti-MAG testing at University of Washington in Missouri.
I’m sorry I cannot give any advice, per se. Just a list of what they measured for me. I guess if the doctor skips any of the above, you can check them out to see why those particular tests are run and whether it might be appropriate for Dell.
I hope it works out OK
