Do NOT Depend on the Standard 
Lab Tests for a Lyme Disease Diagnosis! 

Approximately $500 MILLION is spent on the 
3.4 MILLION Lyme tests performed in the USA each year.

What a huge waste of money!

According to a study from Johns Hopkins, Lyme tests they recommend miss approximately 75% of the patients who have Lyme disease.  Other sources have determined the number missed could be as high as 90%.  Remember, a negative test does not exclude the diagnosis of Lyme disease! 

Update-  The 2006 IDSA Guideline editor, Paul Auwaerter, and more than one of the IDSA Lyme disease guideline authors (panel) are from, or are currently working at Johns Hopkins. Paul Auwaerter was also a co-author on the 2005 John Hopkins study proving the tests for Lyme disease were grossly substandard, yet he continues to insist one or more tests should read positive before being treated for Lyme disease.

Update- Paul Auwaerter (Hopkins) is still on the warpath, attempting to stop doctors from ordering tests for Lyme disease from labs that his colleagues don't have patents on.  Click here  for more information. 

Update- 2016- Paul Auwaerter (Hopkins) continues to insist on the use of 2-tier testing when it has been proven in studies and clinical use that the tests are basically garbage and are not to be trusted.  Click here for more information.

Update- 2017- IDSA authors and a long time supporter published another trashy un-scientific article attacking Lyme patients, Lyme treating doctors, Lyme labs, the media, politicians and any tests other than the ones they promote- calling them "fake tests".  Our response to their "fake" everything article is here.  

Connecticut Attorney General's Findings
May 1, 2008

"The IDSA's 2006 Lyme disease guideline panel undercut its credibility by allowing individuals with financial interests -- in drug companies, Lyme disease diagnostic tests, patents and consulting arrangements with insurance companies -- to exclude divergent medical evidence and opinion."

Difficulty Affording Lyme Testing?

The Lyme Test Access Program (Lyme-TAP) is a nationwide patient assistance program offered by Ferndale Foundation in coordination with the Lyme Patients Assistance Group to provide assistance for initial Lyme-related lab tests to patients who demonstrate true financial need.

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.  Having a negative test provides the insurer another reason to deny your medications and any further testing or treatment for Lyme disease.    

Over the years more health care professionals have stopped using the 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:
