I have been out of the loop as far as the most recent testing options out there for Lyme and Co.

A friend of my dad's sent me the Igenex form, asking what to check off.
He just wants to see if he might test positive for lyme. Been bitten by many ticks over the years, took doxy on and off several times, and just never seemed to bounce back 100% after the last bite.

For those familiar with the form, he wants to check off "LPA Lyme Panel A"
Is that the correct one? I don't know what Panels 1,2, and 3 are as compared to Panel A.
I would think not to recommend him test for the coinfections bc those tests are pretty inaccurate correct? I honestly thought there was a box where you checked off "everything" which costs $800 or so - maybe I am wrong? Someone please advise - thank you!!!

Chapelle, for the blood test IgM and IgG it is still test 188 and 189. The price has gone up.

Here is the price list - igenex.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/01/IGenex-PriceSheet-2.pdf

ok, but it is necessary to do the entire Lyme Panel A? Whenever I used the test, i only did the ones you mentioned and it was in the $200s cost range. this lyme panel A is $546

No, I wouldn't suggest the entire Lyme Panel.

Just the WB IgM and IgG for $250. You can 'tick' just those individual tests.

You're welcome!

There are some new tests Igenex has - they are similar to Armin Labs tests.

Immunoblot and an IGXSpot.

(I think that's the names)


How you doing, Chapelle? and your family?

thanks girlie!

i am well, thanks. to be more specific, i am functioning at 110% but I am 93% healthy. I still have that last bit left. Haven't done any sort of treatment for over a year. I think exercise is keeping me in check. 2 of my kids got the flu and i escaped it. at the time I got a really bad headcold and fought it off with oil of oregano and was all better in 2 days.

i just started a new diet january 1st (no gluten at all), and i just started a 6 week carbohydrate free diet. I think the last 7% is diet related, so we will see where that takes me. All i have left is reflux, tingling at the bottom of my feet when i first wake up, shoulder pain (which has already improved with the diet) and a pain in my back that only happens if i tilt my head all of the way backwards - like who does that lol. But still, I want to be 100% and hope to be this year if i can keep my willpower at its best!

my kids are great, but i am still working with my oldest - she still takes herbs. my youngest had dyslexic issues and was still wetting her bed in 2017, but that all cleared up. She was on herbs for about a year and has been off them for 8 months and is doing great!

that's the short story of it - i can go on and on with more details, but this should do it for now!

sorry i haven't been on here helping. i am still helping others outside the forum, and i am working as a pharmacist now 22hrs a week, so its so hard to find the time!!

are you better girlie? i hope so!!!
