Testing for Lyme

Sun, 03 Feb 2019 22:47:35 GMT

Hello I would like to do the IGenex lyme tests. I read /provocative-antibiotic-test.html, but there is no test in the current panel that matches. What would be the equivalent Borrelia immunoblot from the current IGenex panel list…/IGenex-PriceSheet.pdf? Also someone in the forum suggested Lyme Western Blot IgM. Thank you Sincerely marian

Thank you very much for the reply Dr. I wanted to go for the cheaper option as you suggested on the website: "Alternatively one can order the Borrelia immunoblot. Then, if that is positive, order the tests for co-infections as this would be cheaper." I am not sure which one is that, but i noticed that there is the IB3 panel. Would that cover the basic detection of Borrelia? Since i am in east side of the continent, probably i dont need TBRF tests anyway. Thank you doctor for your patience and time to reply. Please wish good luck to Deanna with the next stage (stem cells) that probably starts soon.

Marian You need to speak to your doctor and have him direct you as to what tests he wants done.
