Re: Take 4 anyone?

Hi Paulette,

I'm a Canadian also dealing with lyme disease. I don't think there is a good lab in Canada for lyme disease. My LLMD actually was on CTV a couple of months ago, and he talked about how unreliable the lyme test in Canada were. Your best bet is to send it Igenex in California. I had 3 lyme test, 2 in Singapore and on in Canada that all came out negative, although my LLMD in Vancouver clinically diagnosed me with lyme based on my symptoms. I have requested a kit from Igenex and plan to send my blood from Singapore for them to test, just for my own curoisity.

Hi Paulette. From what I understand, the ELISA is the least reliable test for Lyme.

In the states, IgeneX is a good lab for tick-borne illness testing. They can test for everything except Mycoplasma. Some Lyme doctors here use MDL in NJ for Mycoplasma testing.

I hope this helps!

Hi paulette,
I live in the US but when I recieved my IgeneX test I noticed the payment types. For the US it is check or credit card and then for Canada it is by credit card only. Call them. They are very helpful. mc
