Tick-Borne Disease Testing

Tick-Borne Disease Testing

Tick-borne diseases can be acquired throughout the United States from a variety of ticks, which carry and pass on different microorganisms to humans and animals. Symptoms may be generic and have overlap with other conditions, and therefore, be difficult to associate with a tick-borne disease.

  • Tick-borne diseases have more than doubled in 13 years and are 77% of all vector-borne disease reports
  • The most common tick-borne diseases (TBDs) in the United States are Anaplasmosis, Babesiosis, Bartonella infections, Ehrlichiosis, Rickettsiosis, Rocky Mountain spotted fever (RMSF), and Lyme disease
  • Lyme Disease accounts for the majority (82%) of all tick-borne disease cases

Ticks usually need between 24 and 72 hours to effectively transmit any diseases they are carrying and, if found in time on the host, can be removed before they transmit infectious microorganisms to the host.

Because many symptoms of tickborne diseases are generic or mimic other conditions, these diseases often go undiagnosed for months, increasing the suffering and disease progression of the patient.

Symptoms Associated with Tick-borne Diseases Include:

  • Fever and/or chills
  • Headache
  • Bell’s palsy
  • Neck stiffness
  • Fatigue
  • Muscle or joint aches/pains
  • GI symptoms : nausea, vomiting, diarrhea
  • Rash
  • Loss of appetite
  • Weight loss
  • Change in cognitive or psychological status
  • Anemia
  • Enlarged, tender lymph nodes
  • Painful abdomen
  • Dizziness or shortness of breath
  • Numbness or weakness in limbs

Tick-borne disease symptoms and disease progression can also often be more severe in the elderly and immunocompromised.

Vibrant TickBorne 2.0 Test

The Vibrant Tickborne Diseases panel is the first of its kind to be run on a silicon micro-array platform, providing the highest level of specificity and sensitivity in the industry for detecting tick-borne diseases. Patients often present with a range of non-specific symptoms that may be Lyme, or other conditions that have symptom overlap. Patients with diagnosed Lyme may also experience resurgence of symptoms, which might suggest co-infections. Co-infections are complex and should be included in an initial screen of Lyme and related illnesses. Vibrant has the most comprehensive antibody (indirect) and DNA (direct) test for detection of Lyme and co-infections.

All four panels below are included in the Tick-Borne Test.

  • Lyme Plus TBRF (IgG & IgM) + Lyme plus TBRF (PCR)
  • Coinfections 1 (IgG & IgM) + Coinfections 1 (PCR)
  • Coinfections 2 (IgG & IgM) + Coinfections 2 (PCR)
  • Opportunistic Infections (IgG & IgM) + Opportunistic Infections (PCR)

OUR HOLISTIC APPROACH

A Functional Medicine approach to healing includes evaluating and addressing the function of the body’s systems. Underlying issues such as genetics, diet, and lifestyle play a large part in the state of our health. That being the case, our approach often lends itself to the evaluation of the body’s systems. This is to say, we focus on identifying and addressing the underlying cause of an illness, rather than just suppressing symptoms. In short, we address the root cause of your health concerns, as well as the symptoms.

Holistic Functional Medicine

Functional Medicine Treatments

We use various health treatments to eliminate triggers and restore proper function and balance. To point out, these include nutritional therapy, herbal medicine, and lifestyle changes, and in some cases prescription medications. Deep and lasting healing is possible when we address the root causes of illness. For this reason, understanding the core systems of the body and how they are related, many chronic illnesses can be prevented and even reversed.
