Sometimes, changing doctors is what leads us to feeling better - a new set of eyes can make a world of difference for some patients -so don't feel bad!!!
I did want to say that Band 18, while only appearing for those bacteria with a "tail", but is not like Band 23, as it only shows for Lyme. There are a few other bacteria with "tails" out there!
I always thought the same, but I researched the bands a few days ago and have found over and over again the band 18 is thought to be specific.. can you show me where it says its just the tail? www.stopthelymelies.com/deciphering-igenex-results.html/www.lymedisease.org/lyme-basics/lyme-disease/diagnosis/lymediseasechallenge.org/testing/
The reason I don't use those other sites is because (at least at one time) they all had different results, which meant someone was wrong! So I looked to find something that talked about
every band, explaining what they found in relation to the bands and research articles to back it up - that's when I came across this site: www.oocities.org/hotsprings/oasis/6455/western-blot.txt
