K07 - I wanted to email you but I noticed you didn't have your email available.

Did you ever get results back from your second DNA Connexions test?

I am retesting now as well. They offered me a great deal since they suspected mine froze during shipment.

I did a deep tissue massage last night, voided my bladder about 45 mins later then took the next sample as recommend. I will be shipping mine out tonight. Fingers crossed....

Me too. On their recent podcast with betterhealthguy they said turnaround was about 5 days. So I’m hoping we get results week after next.

Yes. Hoping for some clarity with this one since I had doubts about my sample on first one. We shall see! Did you have any new testing done with J clinic?

RE: testing - not for infections. I don't think Dr. J does extensive testing...he assumes people have all 3 (although I guess if a person was symptom free prior to treating all infections...maybe he would stop at that)
I had a Positive Igenex for lyme and a positive Bart via pcr from a lab here in Canada (not a known lab in the lyme world)
Dr J seems to treat all patients for Babesia early on.
Lots of lab work though...some I can't even get here in Canada.

2 more weeks?? Dang!! Maybe they put off retests for longer because I did mine a month ago and sent it out on a monday and didn't get it back that friday but the next friday, so I figured we'd hear back today.

I’m a bit frustrated. The first time I paid the extra money to rush. On the betterhealthguy interview Leslie Douglass said turnaround was about 5 days. Grrrrrrr!

Got my results today. Positive for borrelia burg (NSA), bartonella hens (NSA), borellia recurrentis.

What a roller coaster this is.

Interesting.. Have you treated for bartonella before?

I still haven't gotten mine back. I am going to call at some point today.

I'm guessing most here have not heard of this test.

Is it actually looking for "bug" DNA or whats the detection method??

Does it have good reviews, or is it more known in other places?

Care to mention the cost?

Not sure whether to say "congratulations" or not?!?!?!?!?!?!?

Aren't you the one who wasn't testing positive and was a bit unsure? And now you finally tested positive?

How do you feel about that now that you have positive results finally?!? (Interesting you were negative before with the same test!)

actually, it's been mentioned here a lot. Urine test - no Dr. required.

It is a DNA test, yes.

I think it's $500 for a scad of tests. (someone correct me if I'm wrong on the $$)

Many LLMD's aren't using it...not sure why. One LLMD won't use it - one negative thing he said is they haven't done the 'Validation' studies.

Quite a few people on this forum are finding it worth the $$.

I've treated bart a little, but obviously not enough. Based on symptoms alone, my bacteria load seems low and I'm in a much better place than I was 3 years ago.

For me I am not sure what to think about the test yet. I tested completely negative for EVERYTHING!

This is after having a positive western blot for lyme specific bands last year.. sooooo... at first glance this test isn't good. At least it wasn't for me.

HOWEVER, I am supposed to get my retest results today. They think the first sample I sent was frozen during shipment since the temps were below zero when I sent it out. They said this would definitely affect the results.

SO I guess we will see in a few hours what mine comes back with this time....

Thanks Daisies. I tested negative the first time but I thought my urine may have been too diluted. They now recommend you exercise, discard urine and then collect next one.
