this is from an lab site -recommendations prior to testing for vector diseases
"-- Do not take any antibiotics at least one month or longer before a blood test. The antibiotics will remove most of the infection from the blood, reducing the chances of amplifying the specific genetic sequences needed for an accurate result.
-- Do not take vitamins, herbs or supplements that boost the immune system and/or kill. Examples would be colloidal silver, flax seed oil, fish oils, vitamin C, IP6, immune boosters, garlic, transfer factor, olive leaf extract, etc.
Unfortunately, no research exists to guide patients on how long they should avoid these products before drawing blood."
psano- have you opted for any other labs to testlike stoney brook in n.y., immunoscience ca mdl in n.j.
And don't forget when you test next time try for monday or tuesday immediately prior to -or during early menses long hot shower in the am do it early morning
"Testing for Lyme is like looking for a person in a crowd, using a photograph that was taken 30 years ago. The face today may be framed by different color hair, different features due to plastic surgery, more or less weight, glasses or color-altering contacts, etc. The skin may even be a different color. "
"Even if you know for sure that the person you are seeking is in a specific crowd of people, the changes intentionally made and that time has wrought can make it difficult if not impossible to find the person the first, second, third, etc., time you look at each face in that crowd. Face-recognition software may help you narrow down the possibilities, but it won't necessarily come up with only that person."
take care - eventually those bugs will run mags
