About Our Lyme Disease Antibodies Test
Note: Fasting is not required for this test.
We offer lab testing for Lyme disease. Lyme disease is caused by the bacterium, Borrelia burgdorferi, and is transmitted by ticks. Our Lyme disease test is an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay screening test with high sensitivity for antibody detection. Immunoblot testing is appropriate for confirming a detected positive test result and is performed at no additional charge on the original blood sample. Because this Lyme disease test searches for both IgG and IgM antibodies, it can detect Lyme disease sooner than tests that only search for one type of antibody and has a wider window period of when testing can occur.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimate that 300,000 people are diagnosed with Lyme disease in the United States every year. Many individuals who are bitten by ticks never realize it, especially since the bite of immature (nymph) ticks are painless. The longer a tick is attached to a person, the higher their chances of contracting Lyme disease are.
Lyme disease is often misdiagnosed as arthritis, fibromyalgia, multiple sclerosis, and other illnesses like chronic fatigue syndrome, so it is important to get tested to if you are experiencing any of the symptoms mentioned below.
Common Lyme disease symptoms include:
- A characteristic bull's-eye shaped rash
- Flu-like symptoms
Less common Lyme disease symptoms include:
- Joint pain
- Weakness in the limbs
