In the United States, Lyme disease infections typically occur in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic (from northeastern Virginia to Maine), North Central states (especially Wisconsin and Minnesota), and the West Coast (particularly northern California).

Consider taking this test if:

  • You have traveled to areas infested with blacklegged ticks, found ticks on your body, and are now experiencing symptoms of Lyme disease.
  • You have previously tested negative for Lyme disease, but are experiencing symptoms (such as severe fatigue, headaches, and mental confusion) that are not explained by other diagnoses. In this case, taking this test can help rule out the possibility of Lyme disease.

Do not take this test if:

  • You are experiencing a round rash after a tick bite, such as the typical bullseye (bull's eye) rash associated with Lyme disease. Seek immediate medical attention instead of taking this test. A round rash (from a tick bite) is a reliable sign of a Borrelia infection, and it’s best to consult a medical professional and receive treatment as soon as possible.
  • You suspect you might have been infected with Lyme disease bacteria less than 6 weeks ago. The antibodies detected by this test take several weeks to build up in your bloodstream, taking the test before 6 weeks have passed may result in a false negative.

This test will tell you if you test positive for previous exposure to three strains of Borrelia bacteria: Borrelia burgdorferi, Borrelia garinii, and Borrelia afzelii. Lyme disease is caused by infection from Borrelia bacteria, which are transmitted by bites from infected blacklegged ticks. In response to the infection, the body produces specific immunoglobulin M (IgM) and immunoglobulin G (IgG) antibodies. IgG antibodies are detectable about 6 weeks after the tick bite first occurs, and may be detected in one’s blood many years later.

Important Note: A positive test result is not a clinical diagnosis of Lyme disease. A Lyme disease diagnosis can only be made by a medical professional if you have signs and symptoms of Lyme disease and a history of possible exposure to infected blacklegged ticks.

This test includes a two-step process for Lyme disease testing, which significantly reduces the number of false positives. Thus, you’ll only receive a positive result if your finger prick blood sample tests positive for two separate laboratory evaluations:

Screening Test: The screening test uses an enzyme immunoassay (EIA) that measures IgG and IgM reactivity.

Confirmatory Test: The confirmatory test is an immunoblot assay, which is only done if the screening test is positive.

Both of these laboratory evaluations are included in the Lyme Disease Test, and you only need to send in one blood sample.

A positive test result is not a clinical diagnosis of Lyme disease, but EverlyWell’s independent physician network is here for you. If your lab test results are positive, a care coordinator will contact you to discuss next steps and how a physician may diagnose and treat Lyme disease (if appropriate).
