I am new to this forum and would appreciate any input on my recent test results:
Western Blot IgM
Negative
only band 41+

Western Blot IgG
Indeterminate
31+++
41+++
39 turned have way positive

After these results came in I decided to go a step further and had test 31kDa Epitope IgG done and it was a Positive result.

I also tested for some co-infections from a local lab and the following showed above normal
Candida Antibody Iga (H) 1.67 normal .88 or less
Candida Antibody IgG (H) 1.17 normal .88 or less
Candida Antibody IgM (h) 1.40 normal .88 or less
Herpes Virus 6
Cytomegalovirus IGG (H) 3.60 normal .60 or less
EB Virus Anti-VCA, IGG (H) 276.0 normal less than 18.0
EB Virus Nuclear Antigen IGG (H) 120.0 normal less than 18.0
CD57 for LYME disease:
Absolute CD3 (H) 2623 per UL normal 960-2600 per ul
Absolute CD57 (Low end) 66 per UL normal 60-360 per ul

Those of you that are versed in this disease, does it appear I have Lyme or not? This is so confusing.

Thanks so much in advance.

Others who are more in the know will likely be along soon to give you some valuable info, but I do believe that bands 31 and 39 are Lyme specific which to me suggests Lyme.
Quest Elisa Lyme positive 2/2017
Igenex Lyme WB igm positive 3/2017 and July '17
Quest Ehrlichia positive 3/2017 neg. July '17
Igenex Bartonella positive 4/2017 neg. July '17
CD57 30 in 4/2017 12 in July '17

Hi latremax, welcome

Yes, your test results show you have Lyme. Band 31 rarely cross reacts with a virus - like EBV.
But the epitope test has confirmed it is Borrelia, which changed your IND to a positive result.

I'm assuming you have symptoms that led you to get tested?

It also looks like you have Candida and some viruses.

If you want help finding a LLMD for treatment - you can start a new thread: "Looking for LLMD in/near____" and fill in the blank with your location.

You can also contact ILADS and they will send you some options:


ilads.org/ilads_media/physician-referral/

And you can also send me an email - I may also have options for a LLMD near you.

We encourage new members to read through the information in the thread that sits st the top of the page: "New to Lyme?....Start Here!"
