Hi everyone. I was hoping to get feedback from anyone who’s received Lyme test results from medical Diagnostic laboratories, based in NJ. I recevied a positive Lyme test from their lab, and wanted to see if they were a trusted facility. If anyone has any experience please let me know. Thanks in advance for any help.

Me- after testing positive, but didn't meet cdc critiria, ( 1IgM, and 3 IgG) from LabCorp, my nathropath had me do more labs and send them into MDL. It came back with 7positive bands, and 3 co-infections.

After some research, turns out LabCorp and I think quest doesn't test as accurately, and they leave bands out.

(After having issues for years, and being told to go to my therapist, I had enough. I followed my m-i-l, who has used natropaths in the past, for an otherwise, "untreatable" , by modern medicine- they just kept throwing laxatives at her, so she went to a natropath, and was healed. But she has to stay on her protocol for management.

My natropath was the one who found my Lyme, and co-infections. I just started treatment.

MDL is a lab dedicated to finding pathogens and bacteria, especially tick born infections.

I've also read that getting a positive that was false is very rare.

Best of luck in your treatment!
positive for bands: Igm 41; IgG 93/83, 66, 58, 41, and 23.

I was positive at MDL for Lyme, Bartonella, Babesia.

My LLMD prefers them over Igenex

MDL is the same diagnostic test center that Columbia University's tick-borne research center uses for their testing.

My LLMD uses MDL and it got me a positive for Bart. Lyme was considered negative but there were some weak positive bands. He likes MDL better than iGenex because the band intensity (pos or neg) is read by pixels at MDL but just a person eye-balling it at IGenex. I like the results report better from MDL- you can see the bands and it give ms you a percentage of intensity, not just a ++ or - like iGenex
Lyme, Babesia, Bartonella. Symptoms began 5/2016, didn't start treatment until 9/2016. Slow but steady recovery.
