About Lyme disease (elisa)
What is Lyme disease?
Lyme disease is caused by infection with bacteria of the genus Borrelia. It is typically spread through tick bites, causing redness and in many cases a target-like rash around the site of the bite within weeks. Ticks are commonly found in UK woodlands and grassy areas and while not all bites will cause Lyme disease, they should be checked to avoid symptoms. Other symptoms of Lyme disease include tiredness, fever and headache, developing into loss of mobility in the face, severe headaches, joint and neck pain, memory problems and heart palpitations if untreated.
Why take the test?
This test screens for antibodies produced in response to infection with Borrelia bacteria. It is used in conjunction with other tests to diagnose Lyme disease, as other conditions can produce a false-positive result.
