  • Borrelia Antibodies Immunoglobulin M (IgM)

    Immunoglobulin M (IgM) is an antibody that is found mainly in the blood and lymph fluids. It is the first antibody that is produced in the body following an infection. A high concentration of IgM in the blood indicates that you have recently contracted Lyme disease.

  • Borrelia Antibodies IgG

    Immunoglobulin G is the most abundant antibody found in the body. It attacks bacterial and viral infections when they enter the body. A high concentration of IgG and low concentration of IgM indicates that you have been infected with Lyme disease for a period of time.

Erythema migrans is a rash that develops from the point of being bitten. It resembles a bullseye, with redness at the point of being bitten, a clear ring and further redness spreading outwards.

Symptoms of Lyme Disease may include:

  • Rash/Itch:   a rash known as erythema migrans may appear at the point where you were bitten between 3 and 30 days of exposure to a deer tick
  • Flu-like symptoms:   a headache, fever, chills, and fatigue
  • Erythema migrans:   occurs when the rash develops across the body. If you are experiencing this rash, you should contact your healthcare provider immediately for assistance.
  • Neurological numbing:   Bell's palsy, meningitis, and impaired muscle movement may occur due to the swelling of brain tissue in the later stages of Lyme disease.

The Lyme Disease test examines the blood for Borrelia (BORR), the presence of which would indicate whether you have contracted Lyme disease.

You should take the test if:

  • you are presenting with symptoms of Lyme disease in the days following being bitten or having the tick removed
  • you live in a place that is rich in vegetation or woodland
  • you live in Northern America or Northern Europe
  • you go camping or hiking on a regular basis, particularly during the Summer or Autumn
  • you come into contact with larger woodland animals on a regular basis

The test must be taken fasted, before 9 a.m and returned on the same day.
