Best test for co-infections?

Posts: 59

What is the best place to test for co-infections? I am pretty sure I definitely have some (Babesia and Bartonella, I think) but want to make sure I do it right. My initial test for lyme was done through IGenex. Are their co-infections tests reliable?

In my opinion no test is very reliable.

You should be treating based on symptoms and not only a test result that may or may not be accurate.

I tested through Igenex but they all came back negative, but we are still pretty certain I have atleast 2 of the ones I tested negative on.

Maybe someone else may know more, but I would say if your llmd is willing to treat based of symptoms don't waste money on the inaccurate testing.
