I'm pretty sure an LLMD would interpret this as positive. Others with more knowledge of the bands will provide more info.

I was thinking same thing and I don't think the WB test is very accurate especially with the 23 KD IGM. Thank you for your reply.

Can anyone else comment on these results? I am most interested to hear other comments on the 23 kD IgM. I am glad I found this forum. Thank you very much.

Hi HB1124 - welcome!

Band 23 is specific to Lyme.

You must have symptoms/history that indicates possible Lyme disease - and prompted you to test?

Band 23 positive can be used to back up a clinical diagnosis.

Do you have a LLMD?

I have pretty much every symptom listed and I work outside. After multiple tests for other things this seems to make the most sense. I have been to multiple doctors, neurologist, etc. I don't have a LLMD and hope to find one.
