Hi all,

I thought this was pretty significant if Dr. J has switched from Igenex and MDL to Clongen. Has anyone heard of them. Does your LLMD use them?

Thanks,

I just had a blood sample sent to them yesterday to evaluate me for babesia using some modified PCR detection method. I think they are located in Maryland.

My LLMD just starting using them and said that 3 out of 4 patients of his, that he suspected had babesia, turned up positive for babesia.

Haven't had a chance to look into them yet....

The question in my mind is whether their babesia pcr will pick up all the species, or just B. microti?

well I got a bill for $519 -and was checked for mucoplasma , bart and babs.

Babesia microti was high positive for IGENEX originaly.

Came back negative.My llmd checked through muscle testing 2 days before the blood was drawn and said -MY SON HAS BART AND MUCOPLASMA ( AS I DO ) .

Confirmed with DR S in FL on phone consultation last month and he said YES VEFG ...will run other test.he is reponding to treatment for bart.

He has same symtoms as I have and bart and muco kleep coming up and we both have same paterns ....
MY SON sho0wed the same pathogens as I do ...and we respond on treatment.CJORGEN showed negative.I called them and they said if you are on antibiotics will come negative.MAYBE that was the reason.


But bart is still there.1Month after combining treatment for bart and babs ...and lyme all together ...my son said my head does not burn or hurt anymore.

SO TESTING ????I am not really confort on just testing.IT is hard.He has symtoms and rashes very significant....

AGAIN paterns were verified from DR S in FL himself due to the pictures I SEND!

I will be spenidng money on treatment and just checking his liver levels ...rather on test ..from now on...I have spent so much in test ..is not worthit...maybe ...when he feels better I will see if the load is reduced but not now anymore...


oh by the way I will go with muscle testing also...is cheaper..if muslce testing will show no active infection and see improvement with no symtoms...than I will run all the test tro see if it is true..otherwise no $1 spend on them anymore.
