Do you suspect Lyme infection?

Borrelia test for analysis of antibodies via blood test to identify if you have antibodies against Borrelia. The test includes measurement of both Borrelia antibodies IgM and IgG and gives you an indication of current or previous infection

Can the test result show if I have Lyme disease?

Yes, the sample response from a Borrelia antibody test can provide essential information about your possible Borrelia infection. The test includes measurement of both IgM and IgG antibodies to Borrelia, which gives an indication of your immune response and the presence of infection. IgM antibodies are particularly useful in detecting an early infection, usually in the first few weeks after exposure. On the other hand, IgG antibodies may indicate a previous or ongoing infection, depending on their levels and possible increase over time. It is important to note that test results should be interpreted in conjunction with clinical symptoms and any other diagnostic tests for a comprehensive assessment of your Borrelia status.

What is the difference between IgM and IgG antibodies against Borrelia?

IgM antibodies are the first to be produced in response to a Borrelia infection and are more involved in the early stages of the immune response. They are usually used to confirm an early infection, especially in the first few weeks after infection. IgG antibodies then follow and may be present in the body for a longer period of time to provide protection against re-infection. They are often used to confirm a previous infection and may indicate an ongoing infection if their levels increase over time. Both types of antibodies are useful in the diagnosis and monitoring of Borrelia infections.

Why should I do a blood test for Lyme disease?

The Lyme disease test can be ordered for several important reasons. First, it can identify the presence of Borrelia antibodies in your blood. Because Lyme disease can be a serious infection, it is crucial to diagnose and treat it early to prevent possible complications, such as neurological problems or chronic diseases.

By ordering the Lyme disease test, you can also make a decision to seek medical care and get treatment. Antibiotic treatment is usually effective in fighting Borrelia infections, especially if it is carried out in the early stages of the disease.

Another reason to carry out a Lyme disease blood test is that it can give you peace of mind. Getting a clear answer can ease worry and anxiety, especially if you've been worried about possible exposure to Lyme disease.

Antibodies are part of the body's immune system.

Borrelia IgM Antibodies
Borrelia IgM antibodies are the body's early defense against Borrelia infections. They are produced upon exposure to Borrelia bacteria and are particularly prominent in first-time infections, persist in the blood for over a year, and are weak or absent in a new infection in previously infected individuals.
