Re: Has Anyone Out There Tested 0 Bands on Western Blot & Later Tested Positive?
Agree with other posters. You need an LLMD, otherwise you're going to be doing most of the work : (
I've heard that after initial infection that it can take several weeks before it is detectable in the blood test. It does make a big difference which lab you use. Also, just because the lyme test may truly be negative, it does not rule out other tick-borne diseases such as babesia, erhlichiosis, bartonella, etc.
Our MD also tests for thyroid dysfunction, and celiac screening to cover the basis.
