Hi to all,

My name is Patty. This site is full of great

information. Thank you for all your hard work.

I have an appointment with a LLMD in New Jersey

on July 11th but I did get my GP to write a

script for Lyme testing at Igenex lab. Here are

my results.

Igenex IGM result:

18kDa +

23-25 kkDa IND

28 kKDa -

30 kDa -

31 kKDa ++

34 kDa -

39 kDa IND

41 kDa ++

45 kDa -

58 kDa -

66 kDKa -

83- 93 kDa +

Igenex IGG result:

41 kDa+ with bands 31, 34 and 39 IND and the the rest -

The Multiplex PCR test in whole blood showed the genomic and plasmid-B burgdorferi negatives

the Multiplex PCR test in serum showes genomic and plasmid B burgdorferi negatives


Any feedback would be appreciated.

That would be a definite positive and your LLMD will interpret it the same way. You're doing the right thing by coming here for support and starting treatment. [Smile]

You have lyme specific bands along with a 41+. Make sure he runs a full co-infection blood panel as well as it's rarely ever just lyme by itself.

Definite exposure to the Lyme borrelia bacteria.

IgM

31 and 83-93 are lyme specific and your indeterminate are also on lyme specific antigen markers.

Of course 2 of the 3 positives are not on the CDC test.

The 3rd positive, 41 is the flagella and while not specific to lyme borrelia indicates a spirochte bacteria.

IgG

41 is typically the first band to show positive (I think from Steeres 1986 paper).

The indeterminate are all lyme specific. Indicates some antibody are present just not strong enough to be considered a positive.

Good luck, see my next post.

Its amazing there is a controversy to this insidious disease and Ive found it easiest to show a couple of u tube videos on the controversy.

If you watch this video you can see some of the miss diagnosis.

This is our Lyme doctor. It took us 8+ months, 9 MDs, 2 Childrens Hospitals before we started to learn about the controversy and find him.

He is a saint and I show this to help illustrate how MDs have been prosecuted so normal MDs shy away from doing anything but following the flawed IDSA guidelines.

Patty:

One last post. This shows you've been bitten by a tick at the least.

Unfortunately ticks typically carry more than one pathogen.

If will be less expensive if you can have your primary care MD run tests for Babesia (microti and duncani) Bartonella, Erlicholosis.

They are the most common but there are others.

See if he will also run a CD57 and D3 (hydroxy 25) tests.
