    I am reading several post where someone has been able to interpret the detailed labtest report.
    I do not mind posting and will do so along with the not from the Lab Tech. For a little history I have tested posted IgM and IgG Western Blot test for Chronic Lyme Disease. I am hoping that these levels are related to the disease and not an additional condition. Please offer any thoughts or opions regarding this information.

    Comment: In the context of a transplant, "" strongly urges timely consultation with an HLA knowedgable transplant physician or other HLA transplant professional for appr clinical interpretation of a match between patient and doners.

    If you haven't already, I would strongly suggest also posting your message on the LYME board here as there are so many good and knowledgeable people there who could potentially help you. They have used the Western Blot tests often and might be able to help better than the rest of us. Good luck.
