My Lyme was officially diagnosed with an IGeneX Co-Infection Panel test this week. Will see a LLND in a week. What questions should I ask? What should I be aware of? Is there any advantage to seeing a LLMD over a LLND? I feel like I'm walking out onto an ice sheet and don't know how thick it is. Any help is greatly appreciated.

A LLND will have a more holistic approach to treatment - generally.
Some LLND's can prescribe abx. So, if you're wanting to do abx, you need to find out if that one in particular does.


A LLMD will generally have a focus on abx treatment...and not so much herbals.


I would ask how they treat...do they have a preferred herbal protocol? or?
