THROUGH CHALLENGE and Lyme Disease

TWO TIER TESTING

 Two Tier Testing. I have seen a shift in the numbers as a percentage of false Lyme testing through the Two Tier testing program. Lately I have seen 50% as the missed Lyme cases through the two tier system and I was taught 30% positive results in the two tier testing program. I think this is all screwed up only more screwed up than Two tier testing is already. I received a reply from a reader that is learning about two tier testing so I gave her an IN MY OPPINION version. 30% of the Elisa tests that actually prove positive are also backed up with a western Blot test that is not even the correct bands for the Lyme strains in this country. When the test comes back negative. That cancels out the positive test from the Elisa. That is called two tier testing. This is why so many are testing negative. That means at least 70% positive lyme sufferers are missed. This is why it is important to treat the disease, not the test. Our medical community has become too reliant on testing and not learning to use common sense diagnostics. Then again they are afraid that Ins. companies and Pharma will take it all away. IT being the much more important thing in life than treating the patient. Doctors need to learn to treat the disease, not the test.  Two Tier Testing does not work for Lyme.
