Hi BJD55 -
Well... I guess you'll find out what "semi-Lyme literate" means for you! Maybe you can help her learn a thing or two - some MDs and NDs are quite eager to learn. Others....
It is a really great sign that she is interested in partnering with an integrative/alt provider. My LLMD is also very interested in partnering with other MDs but I think she means this only for previous patients of hers.
So - for a good "baseline work up" for a Lymee - I would also include the following analysis but really, it depends on your unique sx and tx AND how familiar your MD is with some of theses tests AND how much you're willing to spend - typical ins won't cover all of it -
full thyroid panel (T3, T4, RT3, RT4)
adrenals + cortisol + DHEA 4 or 5-sample 24hr saliva test w/ urine sample
liver, kidney, electrolytes - "blood chemistries"
25 OH Vit D
methylation/MTHFR (I would not do this through MD but would do it through FULL DNA through 23andme.com)
stool tests (Dr's Data - leaky gut, some yeast/fungus)
This is a good run-down of testing by Dr Rawls (if you're not familiar with him - he healed himself from Lyme) and he has a few more on his list than I do:/rawlsmd.com/health-articles/just-how-reliable-are-lyme-disease-lab-tests
Hope this is helpful - let us know how things go!
