Lyme Disease Message Board


Lyme Disease Board Index


I posted here a few weeks ago asking for opinions on whether or not my symptoms fit Lyme. It seemed to me and everyone else that Lyme is a strong possibility in my case, so I had an IGeneX test done. The results were:

IFA
1:80 Titer
Positive

IgG Western Blot
**39 kDa IND
**41 kDa +++
Negative

IgM Western Blot
**41 kDa +
**83-93 kDa IND
Negative

No bands other than those listed above were reactive. Based on these results, my doctor did not seem to want to go any further with Lyme disease. What do you think?

Can these results give me any more information, such as wether or not I have a major or minor infection of Lyme?

I have been on doxycycline now for six weeks and I have noticed an overall improvement in my condition. I am also taking colloidal silver, which seems to be very helpful. Based on this, my doctor agreed to extend my doxycycline perscription until July and base wether or not to continue with treatment then.

Thanks for reading.
IgG Western Blot
**39 kDa IND
**41 kDa +++
Negative

With your IgG if your IND had been + instead of IND, you would have had an IgeneX positive test.

IgM Western Blot
**41 kDa +
**83-93 kDa IND

With your IgM, if your IND had been a + instead of IND, you would have had an IgeneX positive test.

Any good LLMD would treat based on your scores alone. You have a very strong reaction to the **41 on the IgG and a + on the **41 on the IgM. This in and of itself is telling. Then your 39 in the IgG and the 83/93 also has the IND

Don't know if you're aware but IND means ... not strong enough for a positive, but there IS something there.

In my personal opinion, it warrants Lyme treatment.

(I am NOT a doctor or a medical professional. just a Lymie that understands IgeneX tests)
