Hi everyone,
Just looking over my IgeneX test kit and [B][I][U]WOW[/U][/I][/B]
do they ever offer such a wide range of testing.

Curious if Ticker or anyone else who has been thru
the IGENEX testing and has CHRONIC LYME's disease
which PANEL did you go with?

Especially since my Westren Blot thru Quest came
back non-reactive my question is this basically:

Will co-infections show with the BASIC lyme panel 4090/245.00
or any of the Complete Lyme panels 6040-serum or 6050 -whole blood
for 450.00??

Curious those of you that have done the IGENEX testing that have chronic
Lyme's Disease what panel you choose?

Jennifer
Hi Jennifer. Remember there is no completely reliable test for Lyme. IgeneX uses more sensitive testing and lists more bands on the Western Blot than many other labs.

The co-infection tests are separate from the Lyme panel.

I would recommend getting at least the Western Blot for Lyme and all the co-infection tests.

In all of my reading, I get the impression that some medical professionals believe the body's immune system [I]could[/I] fight off the Lyme spirochetes. Theoretically then, one could be without infection and still have the antibodies, and the Western blot should see this. The longer it's been since the infection, the lower the antibody levels would be in the bloodstreatm, it seems. Is it possible that even with the most sensitive tests, a person could have had Lyme, not have enough antibodies for the tests to be reactive, yet still have all of the neurological presentations of a late disseminated Lyme infection? Seems to me that if this were possible, then a person could undergo antibiotic treatment for a Lyme infection and not get any better. Have you heard anything like this being the case?
