Most of you know this already, but this is for those that don't realize this and who are struggling w/ negative Western Band results from regular labs.
My WB was done by Quest. Good that it seemed to have been read w/in 24 hrs which is important. However, this lab did not read or report on 17 Bb species specific bands! Yet, many insignificant bands were read, reported, and figured into the positive/negative results. This is completely nonsensical and seems to me to be negligent to the point of malpractice!
Does anyone know why they would ignore so many significant bands and report so many that are not significant? Those who suspect or believe they have Lyme disease, yet tested negative for it, need to realize this.
I don't know yet if it will work, but I will ask my LLMD (hopefully tomorrow!) if he can request that ALL the bands be read and reported.
