what is the best test for bartonella and how accurate is it?

I think I may only have bart not lyme although it wouldnt surprise me if I did too. So I want to know if there is a way of only testing for this co-infection.


Hoping that even if the unreasonable dr. I have wont believe lyme they may just perform some other test that could confirm or deny bartonella....

I tested negative for Bart on Igenex, but clinically have the symptoms and respond to Bart treatment.

Maybe Fryes would be a better bet for Bart testing

Tested negative through Igenex co-infection panel but was clinically diagnosed by LLMD with Bart.

Testing is unreliable many rely on symptoms alone.

Igenex only tests for a couple of strands of bart yet there are many more strands in existence. 22, I think.

Clinical diagnosis is best.

I tested negative for bart twice through Igenex and negative a third time through a Fry Lab blood smear but I have been clinically diagnosed for bart by a LLMD.
