"Could some of us be being treated for a disease we don't have?"
Not if you have symptoms of Lyme and a test that has at least one of the Lyme specific bands. Igenex runs the exact same Western Blot and ELISA/IFA testing as Lab Corp, Quest and all the rest - it's just that they know what techniques to use and how long to allow for the testing - they don't rush the testing and use all the right things.
Igenex got a bad name because it was showing more positives than the other 'regular' labs do - which made doctors start questioning it - those same doctors that will argue about
Lyme being real, Lyme being in the area, and chronic Lyme. What they didn't see on a fast, improperly performed test didn't bother them any.
So they started bad mouthing Igenex, instead of investigating the differences and understanding that Igenex turns out so many positives simply because they are doing the testing properly.
