I will be sure to let you know exactly what we find out when we get the results. I don't think they will take too much longer to arrive. I am worried that I have assumed information, that isn't actually fact. But I am certainly providing you what I believe to be true.

I know the test for both countries would be the same test, but I wonder if how they use the information differs. Maybe (here) they get more information, as they do more with the results then they do in Iran. I apologize if this statement sounds ignorant, it is simply a lack of information on my part how other countries utilize the medical stuff. I was so upset when I read on another site, how China views the children with PKU, and what little assistance they provide to their families. (or at least the mom that was posting)
