Re: chemistry & oxidization: their relationship to MCS/ CFS
Posted by Pat on 4/22/03
Hi there! As far as I know, there is absolutely no controversy
regarding the 2,3-DPG blood test. 2, 3-diphosphoglycerate
(2,3-DPG) is a metabolite of red blood cells involved in
releasing oxygen. An abnormal concentration of either
spectrum---concentrations too high or too low--- imply that the
body is inadequately oxygenated. If the concentration is too low
it means that such causes the inadequate oxygenation. When the
concentration is too high it means that the inadequate
oxygenation (whatever its cause) causes the excess of 2,3-DPGs.
Measuring the concentrations is very important and the test that
does so is valid. To my knowlegde, insurance companies usually
covers the test.
For your hospital to deny doing the test is appauling.
I have many questions I want to ask Albert Donnay but I am going
to wait until he gets everything collected: MCS RR's location
received flood damage.
With regard to reversing MCS, I was not talking about Albert's
protocol--- though I bet there is a lot of success with it.

> Pat, thank you for your posts. I am hoping to try Albert
Donnay's protocal(www.mcsrr.org) because my venous blood gas was
highly abnormal(and the hospital didn't want to do the test).
Albert Donnay thinks my neurological, immune and respiratory
problems from mcs will lessen dramatically after 2 months of
treatment. I wonder if this is the improvement spoken of by
you("mcs can be reversed but rare"(paraphase)) and if the 2, 3
DPG test is controversal(hospitals not wanting to perform)?
