Standard CDC Approved Lab Tests Are Missing
74.9% 


Approximately $500 MILLION is spent on the 

3.4 MILLION standard Lyme tests performed in the USA each year.

What a huge waste of money!

As far back as the early 1990's officials have known Lyme tests are not reliable. A 2015 study from Johns Hopkins showed the standard IDSA/CDC approved Lyme tests miss approximately 75% of the patients who have Lyme disease.  Other scientific studies and experienced health care professionals have determined the percentage of people missed could be as high as 90%.

A recent study supports the fact the tests are still NOT more accurate over two decades later.  See new 2017 study located here indicating standard Lyme tests continue to miss 74.9 % of people infected with Lyme disease.     

Stop feeding the greedy patent holders by ordering the poor quality tests.  

Don't play with your health.  
If you must get a test, get the best!    

Better Yet- Forget the Tests!  
~

Unfortunately, the Lyme tests still generate million of dollars for stake holders each year, so they remain on the market.  Worse yet, the same people who studied the tests and determined they were unreliable (example- Paul Auwaerter from Hopkins- 2005 blood test study) also signed off on, and supports/pushes the IDSA Lyme disease guidelines that recommend people have not one, but TWO positive tests before being treated.  Worse yet, Paul Auwaerter, a staunch IDSA guideline supporter (its editor) is on the FDA panel that reviews medical products, such as tests.

Remember, a negative test does not exclude the diagnosis of Lyme disease!  

A false negative Lyme test is a disadvantage in several ways. 

1.  Your health care professional may not realize you could still have Lyme disease and not treat you as a result.  

2.  False negative tests can cause a delay in obtaining a proper diagnosis.  Not receiving proper treatment in the early stages allows a complex infectious organism to spread throughout your body, making your condition worse and allowing it to advance to later stages.  This, in turn, makes Lyme disease more difficult and expensive to treat.

3.  You may be improperly diagnosed with fibromyalgia, CFS, MS, Parkinson's, ALS, ADD, depression and other disorders when in fact Lyme disease is the underlying culprit.  
 
4.  A negative test provides the insurer another reason to deny your medications and any further testing or treatment for Lyme disease.    

Johns Hopkins 2005 Lyme Test Study


No Lyme blood test is 100% accurate all of the time.  
But, if you choose to have a test, do it right.

Over the years more health care professionals have stopped using these standard "insurance approved" tests and are sending blood samples to labs that specialize in tick borne disease testing.  If you would like to use a specialty lab to aid in the diagnostic process, you can have a test kit sent to you upon request.  For more information please contact:
