Hi,

These bands, 41 and 58, are on my tests with three + next to them.

Anyone know what these bands mean?

Hi Lyme4. Welcome, though sorry you're having to join us!

Band 41 is one of the first bands to show up when you have lyme. It isn't listed as one of the "specific" bands because arguably, it "COULD" be caused by certain other conditions... (severe dental problems, etc.) In other words, bacteria OTHER than borrelia burgdorferi could cause it to light up, although in conjunction with symptoms of lyme, it's a pretty good indicator.

Band 58 is a specific band for lyme.

I would say that if you had *** on these bands, and symptoms and history consistent with lyme with other disease processes ruled out to your doctor's satisfaction, most LLMD's would consider treating you for lyme.

lyme4,

So sorry to read all in your family have Lyme.

I just wondered was this a followup test for
you while on antibiotics or before starting.

Sounds like you already have a definite lyme diagnosis. What does your Dr. who ordered the test say??
