So where we -- say that disease we have antibody test we have tests have to find that if you have the disease or not genetic testing.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- is very difficult to -- -- diagnosis.
Patients go from doctor to doctor a lot of times they may feel like they are to call -- meant to all this is a placebo effect this is really not true.

This is a burgeoning field 6% of people look like they have it.
It's something that any reputable internist or -- around this will be on the -- -- Very interesting actually because all of these he just mentioned that name you're -- bowel syndrome.
We've talked about inflammatory bowel disease were talking about Syria disease and now this.
