Fyi - in latest newsletter he updates testing recommendations and says IGeneX immunoblot ($450) has highest specificity (98%) and sensitivity (90.9%). Next in line is IGeneX western blot ($250). He still does not like DNA Connexions due to not doing validation studies and clinically he says people test positive for infections that they have no symptoms of. I am sure many will not agree with that last point. I do wish they would provide validation.

I agree that DNA connexions should do the validation studies.
But I’m surprised that LLMD doesn’t accept that patients can have asymptomatic infections that don’t surface until we treat that infection.
And there is so much overlap with symptoms.
