Lyme Disease Test with Reflex
Experiencing symptoms such as fever, fatigue,
joint pain, or a bullseye rash, and suspect Lyme disease? A Lyme Disease Test
with Reflex can help diagnose this tick-borne illness. It initially screens for
antibodies against the Lyme disease bacterium. If the initial test is positive
or equivocal, further testing (reflex) is performed to confirm the diagnosis.
Early detection is crucial, as untreated Lyme disease can lead to serious
complications. Timely medical evaluation, especially if in a high-risk area, is
essential for appropriate treatment and better outcomes.
