before anyone sends their blood to a lab for ALS Gene Test, Do some research on the Labs and the cost of the test. The Day I was diagnosed the doctor suggested I get a gene test by Athena Labs. I got a bill for $10,200. This was a complete surprise. I started researching to find there are several other labs that do the same test for a lot less. The cost range was between $500 and $3000. After a lot of Stress and going round & round with Athena I paid them $800. We shouldn't have to go through this after being told we have ALS.
