Re: Need LLMD in Upstate NY, near Oswego

Well... the results from IGeneX are in...

for myself:
IgM:
31 kDa + (**)
41 kDa + (**)
58 kDa +

IgG:
23-25 kDa IND (**)
31 kDa IND (**)
39 kDa IND (**)
41 kDa ++ (**)

for my son:
IgM:
31 kDa IND (**)
41 kDa IND (**)

IgG:
31 kDa IND (**)
39 kDa IND (**)
41 kDa ++ (**)


According to NY State, we're both negative in both tests. According to the Lab, I'm positive on the IgM and negative on the other one. However, there's a statement in the report that says "a single positive band or a single IND (Indeterminate) band may indicate clinical significance". We have plenty of IND! So the following questions come to mind:

1- How common are IND in these sorts of results?

2- Can the IgM results be crossed-referenced with the IgG results? I.e. both official results are from 1 IgM or IgG test... but the bands on both IgM/IgG tests line up pretty well for both of us, and between the 2 of us as well! For instance, band 41... I have IgM +, IgG ++ and my son has IgM IND, IgG ++. And for all of my son's IND, I have either an IND or a +... This can't be a coincidence!

so I'm looking for any inputs on this...

Also... I still haven't found a specialist in my area. I have written to someone from "CNY chapter of the Empire State Lyme Disease Association" and got 3 names... but they led to nowhere. So now, more than ever, I'm also looking to get some names around upstate NY... I'll travel if I need to.

Thanks!
