I finally have my igenex results and would welcome thoughts/interpretation.

I will search the archives for help as well but thought I'd see what the "experts" on here have to say.

I've been struggling for over 23 years and answers would be wonderful!

IGM
18 ++
23-25 +
30 +
34 IND
39 IND
41 ++
83-93 IND

IGG
31 IND
39 IND
41 IND

Thanks,

BB

Lyme all over the place. I would sure want to be treated! Have you had any antibiotics recently?

If you do the antibiotic challenge all of those "IND's" may convert to "+'s"... then this test result would be off the wall positive.

Is the IgM marked as positive?

All of the bands are explained here:

My thoughts - you are positive so I would seek out treatment.

Many of those you are showing + or ++ are Lyme specific so good evidence that your immune system has been exposed to the Lyme bacteria.

Many with lyme find that bartonella, babesia, ehrlichia and mycoplasma are problematic as well. Please test for these infections, or make an appointment with an ILADS-trained LLMD for a clinical diagnosis.

--------------------
13 yo DX PANS/Tourette's/Asperger's/ADHD treated for Igenex positive bartonella/IND lyme with 2 years of abx treatment. Weaned off abx April 2013 at 80% improvement. Continuing with Buhner bartonella/babesia protocols. Aug 2014 99% improvement.

Thanks for the replies! When I became suspicious of possible Lyme disease I found a LLND and I am currently on antibiotics.

She diagnosed based on symptoms etc. while waiting for test results. Now that I have them, I'm was curious as to whether my actual test results validated a Lyme diagnosis.

This group does such a great job giving insight interpreting test results that I figured I would give it a shot.

The test results showed IGM was positive for both Igenex and CDC but the IGG was negative. I guess the IND's for IGG put it into the negative category.

It sure would have been easier if those IND's were + so I would have been positive on all counts.

IGM shows active infection so I wouldn't worry about the IGG not being positive. You are actually very fortunate to have a positive get because many people don't.

symptoms since 1993 that I can remember. 9/2018 diagnosed with Borellia, Babesia Duncani, and Bartonella Hensalae thru DNA Connections.
