I just received Igenex test results from my doctor. She said I definitely tested positive for Lyme. How do I read these test results? There are 4 pages and I am not sure where to start. Okay...so I understand when it says positive or negative but yikes there are so many numbers. For example what is PLASMID Positive confirmed by Southern Dot Blot in a serum sample? What is Igenex IGM positive & CDC/NYS Positive followed by 23-25kDa + 39kDa+ 41kDa++ 83-93kDa** ? Any insight into all this would be greatly appreciated.
