Some of you have approached me about getting yourself, child or someone you know tested. Hold on! Not all Lyme tests are created equal! I asked our doctor what all you out there should do if you want to get tested.
If you go to your average doctor, they will take blood and most likely send it to Quest Diagnostics. Even if you do have Lyme, your test will come back negative. The doctor said you would need your health care provider to order your “C3a and C4a levels.” He added that it is extremely important that the tests be performed only at the National Jewish Medical and Research Center Laboratory in Denver or IGenex.
