As of this month, my certification to do tick testing has expired. The place to renew this has shut down so I will be pursuing this to renew my certification.
In the meantime, below are places where you can send your ticks to be tested. This is very important. To save your ticks, put them between two pieces of tape and then attach to a piece of paper for the techs doing the testing.
With the results, you can be certain to get the treatment you need from your doctor. Remember to request your doctor to use the protocols chosen by The National Guideline Clearinghouse. http://www.guideline.gov/search/search.aspx?term=lyme .
As always, be healthy and prevent Lyme by doing tick checks often.
FREE tick testing is available from the Bay Area Lyme Foundation
