Yesterday my neurologist came to my house and as we discussed all the symptoms of AS..I mentioned to her about the "Lab Tests Online" ( AACC ) site which I had been researching. She was super interested as she is still learning about this awful disease. In the site I found mention of HLA-B27...which can actually be tested for at home with Urine analysis sticks...the complete test kit not just the one used for diabetics. Apparently if your Urine test comes back positive for Leukocytes it is an indication that you may have HLA-B27 which is the catalyst for AS. So when I'm away in Australia, I will test my kids and grandkids...for the antigen HLA-B27 as it is a genetic problem. Has anyone else got any more info to add to this ?
