This presentation will discuss at length Lyme disease and other tick-borne infections, full foundational background, clinical presentation and laboratory diagnosis with a focus on utilization of IGeneX labs.
Often times criteria for diagnosis is unclear for many and how to read and interpret laboratory testing. There will be a review of the understanding of how to incorporate diagnosis amongst other leading infections present, e.g. EBV, Mycoplasma or an autoimmune condition and the significance of its impact on health as well as important demographic implications for diagnosis. The presentation will also cover persistent, chronic Lyme disease and dysregulation in immune function. Case studies will be provided and reviewed for Lyme disease, other tick-borne infections like Bartonella and Babesia including cases of patients who have Lyme disease plus an autoimmune condition.
