Hi, welcome back to Health Bunker blog.
In today’s article we are going to discuss a particular hot topic now around the world, blood testing.
We will highlight the types of testing available on the NHS for Lyme disease. We will also investigate the other available independent Lyme tests that are available.
Doctors sometimes, well ok most times write off the Lyme disease symptoms that they are presented with, making the patient feel crazy or pathetic.
It is a fact that the testing for Lyme and other diseases is not accurate to say the least. Blood testing can be a picture of that moment in time. And the same test tomorrow could throw out a totally different result.
Lyme disease is a stealth disease and the Borrelia infection, can lay in wait for an opportune moment or slowly debilitate its host over many years.
This makes it very hard to test for borrelia because of it’s hide and seek actions. Then we have the other infections or co-infections that also paly a huge part in Lyme disease.
