Need help with IGENEX RESULTS


Recommended Posts

Hi,

I got the Igenex results today. Those of you who have done this testing please help me to intepret the results. Should I do continue with testing for the coinfection panel?

 

IFA 1:80 positive

 

 

IgM igenex negative

CDC negative

 

31 band INDeterminate

34 band INDeterminate

39 band INDeterminate

41 band ++

 

 

IgG Igenex negative

CDC negative

 

23-25 INDETERMINATE

31 INDETERMINATE

39 INDETERMINATE

41 +++

66 +

 

Since so many bands were indeterninate ( weakly positive) and 41 being positive ...I was thinking should it not be positive.

Also What does the IFA test mean if it says positive...is it a good reliable test?

I would like as many inputs as possible....so if you have done the testing please send your input.

 

Thanks,

Madhu.

Hi Madhu,

Please note I am not a doctor and I am very new at looking at the Lyme literature but from what I have learned, Lyme is a clinical diagnosis and blood work can be very confusing. With that said, an "indeterminate" result means something is there but the immune response was not significant enough to move it to a stronger positive result category....plus I believe the positive IFA is indicative of Borrelia. The co-infections are an important part of the overall treatment for Lyme so I would encourage you to DEFINITLY further investigate it. I am sure a Lyme Literate doctor could help you better determine the best way to proceed. Keep up your hard work...you will get the answers you need!

Best,

Joanne
