There were no bands on the IgM. Completely negative on that front. This is my first time getting tested and it wasn’t tested at a lab like igenex. I’m not too familiar with any of this- so don’t know if that might make a difference or if I should look into getting retested.
Oh - not Igenex -
Yes testing with a lab that specializes in tickborne disease testing is preferred. Generally More bands tested and tests are more sensitive.
If a positive test is important to you - then think about
getting the Igenex Lyme WB IgM and IgG - total cost is $250.
It’s not a lot of $$ really to spend.
Do you have a Dr willing to sign the lab req?
