17 Signs Of Mold Illness (And How To Tell If You’re At Risk)

How to diagnose CIRS?

These are the criteria that have to be met in order to make a diagnosis of CIRS:

– Any signs, symptoms, or history of biotoxin exposure. If the case is mold toxicity, history has to include toxin-producing mold exposure, and in other cases like ciguatera or mycrocystin, history needs to invlove exposure or lab evidence of exposure;

– Genetic predisposition to illnesses related to biotoxins based on the identification of an HLA susceptible haplotype;

– Any abnormalities that have been documented by the VCS testing;

– Biomakers that consist of neuroimmune, vascular, and endocrine abnormalities which characterize this disease. If there is a history of biotoxin exposure, a susceptible genotype, and an abnormal CVS test you will probably show lab abnormalities that are seen in CIRS.

We suggest you the following steps if you have issues with mold:

Step 1: You can start learning about illnesses connected to mold. Try Dr. Shoemaker’s book.

Step 2: Make a test of mold at your home. ERMI is one of the best tests. You can hire a profssional to do a visual inspection, or perform ERMI on your own for around $325. It is only helpful if it is positive. Better skip the testing, and hire a professional.

Step 3: You can work with trained person at a clinic to do a test performed by Labcorp, panel # 167120.
