I am not a Dr or an LLMD. I cannot maintain that I am 100% right. (nor can the Drs!)
However, I did as much research as I could find on the WB, trying to figure stuff out.
I don't know what the P41 is.
A positive reaction on band 41 indicates infection by spirochetes.
Band 39 is species specific for Bb. Meaning, no other infection causes a positive reaction on band 39. This means you have antibodies specific to Bb.
ALL of the info I have found says that positive band 39 means you do have lyme.
The fact that you have this band, added to 2 41s, IMO, as well as the Lyme specialists, indicates you have lyme disease.
I don't believe there is debate over lyme infection on a WB like yours. I believe the debate between LLMDs and the rest of the medical community is whether or not presence of Lyme antibodies indicates an ACTIVE infection.
Your lab even interpreted your test as positive. I do not understand how your Dr reached his/her conclusion? Your test indicates Lyme.
I don't see any IgG results here. Does anyone here have any insight on this for Mom?
