    Hi, has anyone had this blood test or know if it is worthwhile taking. It is a blood test and if it is high it could mean Bartonella. My Dr. now thinks I may have this. He also thought I had Babesia. I was just wondering if anyone knows how helpful this test is. Thanks all, Jess

    Yes, I had this test. It was within normal range. So were my Bartonella tests, but Cipro ( main class used to Bartonella ) helped some of my 'Bartonella' symptoms.

    You may want to do the test if your insurance covers it. It could provide more answers.

    Hopefully you have VEGF otherwise you would be dead. I don't understand a VEGF test? is this standard? or is this through a "specialized" lab?

    This is a test to see if it is unusually high.

    Hi Jess, was just wondering what your doctor has decided, or not....... and what avenue you're pursuing?

    all the best,
