Not sure what tests are for

They are as follows:
Full metabolic screen
Fragile X test in which you use tubes EDTA and lithium heparin.
Urine test for organic acids.
I am wondering whether the psy is just calling tests by a different name than what a gp would.
I was going to get back on to him and ask for a exp. but I have already tackled him for giving me referrals to services that don't exist.

Because fragile X is a genetic and because I had a block of very weird children from a very weird family that needed to be ruled out as a possibility so both boys where tested to be 100% sure when Sam was 2 Nathan was 9.
They also decied to rule out a few other very rare odd disorders that present behaviour similar to ASD but might be progressive.
It was the good old family ASD though they did find a very high level of IgE in Sams blood that is typical for children who are very atopic to certain protiens.
If your unsure what a test is for or need to ask again later do so.
If you cannot get a response by phoning try writing as a phone call may be ignored but a letter is less likely to be ignored.
