My LLMD recommended this test. It’s $800 though. Anyone have experience with it?

Yes! One of the newer labs. They do a lyme and coinfections panel. I’m hesitant to try it as it’s very pricey. Was wondering if anyone here had experience with it.

Why spend $800 on something that has no track record?

Well that’s why I was asking here... I had never heard of it but maybe someone here has?

Both of my children were diagnosed with Lyme using Global. They both had negative Lab Corp tests. My daughters global Lyme came back with 41 kB. Mg sons came back igg positive and also 41kb. Our Lyme doctor said it’s a good test. We didn’t do the co infections test with global though. This was prior to it coming out.

Igenex would be less expensive as their Lyme Panel is only around $200 (we haven't had one done in a year so price is approximate).

The Igenex Western Blot is surely capable of finding band 41 (at least) at a cost of approximately $250 or less.
