I was reading an article earlier on http://arizonaadvancedmedicine.com/articles/lyme_disease.html.
and stumbled across this paragraph -

"A good test to determine whether you have Lyme can be hard to come by. The Lyme spirochete can hide in the human body and fool the immune system into thinking it isn't there by hiding behind a protein wall produced by the spirochete, called "biofilm." So, antibodies are not produced, resulting in negative tests. The spirochetes can also morph into a different form, a cyst, which the immune system does not recognize."

Is it entirely true?

Yes for both. A good LLMD will be aware of this.
