    Dr horowitz says if you test positive to band 39 on a western blot test you have been exposed to the Lyme bacteria. This band (and 21 34 39 83 93 for others reference) are very specific for Lyme.

      Sorry but please be blunt. Yes, I do have lyme or, no, I do not have lyme. What is it about my numbers that is indicating that I do or do not? Does IND mean positive? What does it stand for? Thank you for your patience with my questions. confused

    Blunt yes you have Lyme number 39 says you have lyme. i think if I was to explain the testing (which is very very very complicated) that you would not understand. You want it in black and White- there is NOTHInG black and white about this disease.
