What We Do
Your LymeLilli donations provide Testing & Treatment assistance options for children, pets and adults suffering with Lyme disease and Co-Infections. We work with your treating physician (Lyme Literate doctor or Medical Doctor).
We provide, depending on the Level of Care needed, assistance in the varying stages of the disease.
Donations are applied in these 3 Easy steps:
- Testing with Igenix (ordered by an LLMD | Physcians office)
- Ultimate Lyme Support System through the “Donate a Box for Detox” program
- Financial assistance at a Treatment Center or In Home Care for severe chronic Lyme cases
So, whether its catching the disease in its early stages and needing a test, or boosting your immune system with the Ultimate Support System Program, or needing Late Stage Treatment at a Lyme specialists office or center.
Your donations help restore health by opening up unaffordable options plans.
Igenex uses more than one strain of the bacteria as the basis of their test, and, they are the only laboratory that uses a human derived strain as opposed to a tick derived strain. This human strain may be significant as to why more people are improving after a positive Igenex test, followed by proper treatment.
LymeLilli Quick Tip: Learn to read your Igenix tests, and look at the positive bands and the IND bands. (see below on how to read the bands)
**IND = inconclusive. Inconclusive doesn’t rule out that band to Lyme Literate doctors, especially if your symptomatic. You also may have tested when the disease isn’t active. So, always get a copy of the full report.
IGM = current & active infection | IgG = past exposure to infection | past infection
KDA Western blot (9 known bands)of Borrelia Burgdorferi (Lyme): 18 23 30 31 34 37 39 83 93
The Lab marks each band with intensity symbols:
– No Present detection
+ Low detection
++ Medium detection
+++ High detection
+ | – Equivocal IND ( somethings there, but detection not strong enough to register + )
READING RESULTS FROM IGENIX TEST:
18 LLMD’s say if this band is present is a positive, and you have Lyme
9 Cross reactive for Lyme12 Specific for Lyme
12 Specific for Lyme Bb
20 Specific for Lyme Bb
23-25 OspC outer surface protein specific for Lyme
30 Unspecific Common in California strain (could be from other viruses)
31 OspA outer surface protein (Other viruses causes possibly)
34 Specific for Lyme Bb (outer protein)
35 Specific for Lyme
37 Specific for Lyme
38 Cross reactive for Lyme
39 Major Lyme flagellin
41 Flagellin protein of all spirochetes, 1st to appear after infection, other spirochete diseases not Lyme
45, 50, 55, 57, 60 Cross reactive for Lyme Borrellia
58 May be a Heat shock Lyme Bb protein
66 Common in all bacteria | reactive to Lyme
83 SPECIFIC TO LYME BACTERIA CYTOPLASMIC MEMBRANE
93 SAME AS 83 BAND JUST MIGRATES IN PATIENTS DIFFERENTLY
The CDC includes 5 non specific antibodies in the Western Blot. Criteria is 28, 41, 45, 58, and 66
This leads to false positive Lyme Western blot results.
