I don't know yet what my PCP will recommend or how much he knows about
my Western blots from Quest, which I, amongst others, believe is significant, and at the very least shows exposure to Lyme, as well as antibodies to lyme presently in the blood. Why would I have the antibodies without having Lyme?
OK: IF I can convince my PCP to order tests from IGENEX, then my insurance should pay me for them.
My questions: Do you have a copy of the IGX Panels that are offered? (if you email them, they will send to you. If you don't, I would try to post here, but don't know any way except thru email)
If you do have these test/panels with costs, would you please look at this and tell me what you would recommend? Ill paste Igenex tests and costs below.
Just like everyone, I need to be tested for Bartonella and Babesia, possibly Rocky Mt. (it hit our dog park/woods). HECK, I NEED THEM ALL.
I already understand that the MASTER CO-INFECTION panel is probably the best. However, I have little money and need this test to count. Is there one I can start with and gain some necessary info which would could lead to a diagnosis?
I WILL do the master, as long as I can be reimbursed.
from the panels, I see that ala carte, the expenses are not that bad. Igenex info pasted below. I am very anxious for comments and opinions regarding the panel. ie; WOULD ONE OF YOU VETERANS, OR OTHERS please
