If the test are for an initial diagnosis, then several test will be used, each set of results will help to select the next appropriate test.

If the condition has been diagnosed, then test appropriate to that condition become the 'best'.

There is some good information here http://www.edren.org/pages/edreninfo/bl ... isease.php

These are questions to ask your medical team, who have access to all your information. We cannot offer any medical advice, we are patients here to support one another with our experiences, not clinicians.
