Perplexing Igenex Lyme Test Results

Thu, 30 Jul 2020 20:55:52 GMT

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

B Ducani = Borrelia Ducani this is not a co-infection but an infection by the Borrelia species Ducani

I was told it was babesia

It is listed under the Babesiosis heading in the results report

I stand corrected I still believe this is a treatable disease and you may want to consult with an Infectious disease expert to see which antibiotics are most effective for your infection. Dr.T.
