Fry Lab Test - Bartonella

My Fry Lab test showed dots on the inside of my cells. I see most bartonella blood smears show dots outside or attached to the cells. Why is mine different. It said "suggestive of Bartonella spp"

Re: Fry Lab Test - Bartonella

My husband also had dots inside his cells and also tested positive with antibodies to bartonella quintana.

So, was this a recent test for you? I thought Fry had stopped calling everything bartonella and now said "suggestive of hemobartonella or mycoplasma." Perhaps if the dots are on the inside Fry still says bartonella?

The rest of my family had dots on the outside and we were told it was suggestive of hemobart or mycoplasma.

Hope this helps.

Re: Fry Lab Test - Bartonella

I suffered with Bartonella for years. I began treatment with Levaquin and I feel much much better now.

Levaquin is strong broad spectrum antibiotic and can cause tendon pain and damage. So if you take it, keep an eye on your tendons.

Only after treating my co-infection of Bartonella did my neurological symptoms retreat and I began to feel more like myself again; my mind came back.

I'll check and see what test was used where I tested positive.

Peace and health to all,
