Someone on a lyme fb group I'm a part of said they used Medical Diagnostic laboratory for lyme testing, that they got their insurance to cover it, and that they're supposed to be more accurate than Igenex. I looked at their website, but when I click on a link, it gives me an error message. Ever heard of them?

This was posted a few days ago. It's currently on Page 3 of the forum.


I was tested there, too, a couple of years ago.

I've just recently heard about that Lab.

I got the error message as well...when I wanted to look at the tests they offered.

Thanks, I thought it was sketchy that their website doesn't work, but it sounds as if they have a good rep.

The MDL website is working again. It may have been down for maintenance last night.

My LLMD prefers MDL. My first test was through Labcorp, and MDL picked up more. My doctor said it’s more sensitive. And I did end up CDC positive where Labcorp, I did not have all the bands. And insurance did cover it
