I am so totally confused and overhwelmed!!! I have no idea. how accurate is the igenex babesia test? someone on another forum told me it is 93% accurate? what do you think? my doctor shold really be telling m this- ugh- doctors- ugh I really need to know for sure I have put so much into my body and do not want to do months and months of a treatment for somehting I am not sure I have
No - not 93% accurate.
Same as lyme. Lots of false negatives - apparently even more with the coinfections.
It sounds like it’s important to you - so maybe call Igenex and ask them for the Babesia test that is the best bang for your buck.
If you get a positive - it will give you peace of mind (sorta?) and you will know it has to be treated.
If it’s negative - you will not know for sure - it all depends on if you’re willing to spend the $$ for a result that may not tell u anything.
Hey if I had spare cash - Id likely do more testing.
