@chelan, you are right about all of these. BTW Igenix is here in Palo Alto, where I live. It is the “go to” lab, and maybe the only one, if you want to get diagnosed with “Chronic” Lymes. When I saw an LLD, it turned out that my doctor was the son of one of the main guys at Igenix. Keepin’ it in the family! BTW, I got my mercury poisoning “confirmed” by Doctor’s Data also. Small world!
