Re: Mdl......????

What is a pcr test? What about the western Igg and Igm any good?
Did you test with them? How would I go about doing so? My primary doc does not draw blood.

Thanks,
J

Hi J. I have had Mycoplasma testing done at MDL. It is the only co-infection that IgeneX does not test for.

I think IgeneX is a better lab for Lyme and the other co-infection tests.

Polymerase chain reaction (pcr) is a DNA test. It's a good test but only if your luck enough to get some of the DNA in the sample. I was told it's like dipping into a fish tank blind folded trying to catch a fish.
