Lyme disease is caused by the Borrelia bacteria and is primarily transmitted through tick bites. It can lead to a range of symptoms, including fever, headache, fatigue, joint pain, and a characteristic skin rash called erythema migrans. The Lyme IgG/IgM Rapid Test detects early and past infections by analyzing for IgM and IgG antibodies in blood, offering rapid, reliable results.

Many customers choose to also order a CRP Test, a rapid test that measures the level of C-reactive protein, an indicator of inflammation in the body. This combination can provide a more comprehensive overview of inflammatory responses, particularly useful in cases where Lyme disease symptoms are present.

GetTested's Lyme IgG/IgM Rapid Test

Discovering Lyme Disease and Its Symptoms

Ticks often carry and transmit Lyme disease, a condition resulting from the Borrelia bacteria. Common symptoms include fever, fatigue, joint pain, and a noticeable skin rash called erythema migrans. Detecting Lyme disease early plays a critical role in effective treatment and halting its advance.

The Role of IgG and IgM in Lyme Disease Detection

The Lyme IgG/IgM Rapid Test from GetTested specifically looks for both IgG and IgM antibodies to Borrelia. Your body typically produces IgM antibodies first, within weeks of infection, indicating recent or ongoing Lyme disease. These antibodies generally have a short lifespan. However, in long-lasting infections like Lyme disease, IgM levels can stay elevated for an extended period. In contrast, IgG antibodies develop later and remain for months or years after clearing the infection, signaling past exposure.

Advantages of the Rapid At-Home Test

This rapid test enables you to check for Lyme disease comfortably from home, using just a small blood sample. You can perform the test with ease and get results within 10 minutes. Designed for versatility, it works well with whole blood, serum, or plasma samples.

Does GetTested's Lyme test detect only active Lyme disease infections, or does it also identify past infections?

GetTested's Lyme test checks for both IgM and IgG antibodies. IgM antibodies are typically present soon after infection, indicating recent exposure. IgG antibodies develop later and can persist for months or years, signifying past infection. Therefore, this test can detect both current and previous Lyme disease infections.
