    Hi!

    I am having a Lyme test from Ingenex done tommorrow - but need to know which one to choose:

    Here are the options:

    (1) Basic panel - Western Blot IgG, Western Blot IgM and Lyme IFA (4090)

    or

    (2) Complete Panel: Western Blot IgG, Western Blot IgM and Lyme IFA and Lyme PCR (but I must pick either serum (6040) or whole blood (6050) - not sure on this either)

    Do I need coinfections Panel or do you wait until you are Lyme positive?

    Anybody who knows about the Ingenex tests or tests in general I sure need your imput.

    THANKS SO MUCH,

    Elisabeth

    I had the 188 and 189 IgM Western Blot and IgG western blot.

    My doctor doesn't test for coinfections right away, but some do.
