I rather have a fully detailed report of a biological test to prove i have a psychiatric disorder than a boat of pseudoscientific voodoo.
A biological test like a blood test?
Yes, a blood test would be a excellent diagnostic, assuming schizophrenia could be detected in the blood.
Thanks for the link.
I read about blood tests for bipolar and suicidal ideation but never came across this work for schizophrenia. This is a bit scary because more often than not, people are medicated straight away at any hints of psychiatric disorders. Therefore a blood test, and it's development, are skewed by the fact that there are almost no people with schizophrenia who are unmedicated to compare to with the 100% of people with schizophrenia who are/have been medicated.
I think you could detect "schizophrenia" in blood, but that is not really useful and is probably dangerous. Just my thoughts.
