Perplexing Igenex Lyme Test Results
I first did a Lyme antibody test through Genpath which showed positive bands of 41, 45, and 66. I then did the provocative antibiotic test and had my blood sent to Igenex for the TBD3 test.
The results are perplexing:
B burgdorferi IFA – G/M/A : >80 – positive
Lyme ImmunoBlot IgM : bands 23 and 41 are inderminate, all others negative – determination is negative
Lyme Immunoblot IgG: bands 30 and 41 are indeterminate, all others negative – determination is negative
B duncani IFA – IgM : negative
B duncani IFA – IgG: 160 – positive for active infection
I am confused by the mixed results and how I can be positive for a co-infection but not Lyme.
Any guidance anyone can give me would be greatly appreciated
