its weird that almost EVERYBODY tests positive for lyme with DNA connexions.
Does everybody carry around this bug and maybe only 1% of the population actually reacts to it?
very strange. thinking about doing this test myself
Have you had any positive test for borrelia?
I was Elisa negative.
Western blot was IGM negative and IGG positive only on 41 and 66.
Igenex was negative. Bands were:
IGM: 41, 45, and 58 positive; 39 Indeterminate
IGG: 41++, 58+, 39 Indeterminate
DNA Connexions was positive for Borrelia burgdorferi F7 and Ehrlichia chafeensis. I did not get a positive on babesia or bartonella, even though I've had lifelong signs and symptoms of bartonella (definitely) and babesia (possibly). The lab notes stated the findings were indicative of long-term infections.
The doctor who ordered the tests told me Ehrlichia was endemic in our area (southern US). The DNA Connexions results made perfect sense to me in light of my symptoms, life history, and WB and Igenex results, and I've never had any reason to doubt the validity of the DNA Connexions test. My current Lyme doctor doesn't use that lab and was not familiar with them.ok, thanks for the feedback.
its just weird that everyone test pos specifically for lyme through connexions, dont think I have heard of one person testing neg yet.
actually thinkinig of getting their other test which tests for a whole bunch of other stuff, cant remember the name of it. here
The Full View Test identifies bacteria, viruses, fungi and parasites in removed teeth, blood, tissue, implants, bone grafts or other biological samples. It tests for 88 different pathogens, including tetanus, botulism, diphtheria, HPV 16 and HPV 18, Candida albicans and more. Using PCR, one of the most advanced tools in molecular biology today, specificity of this test is one in a trillion or greater and the sensitivity of the test is the ability to detect the DNA of between 1 and 10 microbes.
